My basement drain was backing up so I contacted the "other" drain company that you always hear on the radio to have a look and fix it. I was told that there was a big problem in the line and he has to remove the toilet in the basement to be able to clean it and gave me a price of approximately $1400. I refused because I can not afford it. I was referred to Roy Gibson of Mayday Drain Services.
He was way out in Markham,when I called but he said he will call me back to let me know when he could come. A few hours later, he called and came. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, efficient, helpful & professional which is rare these days. He turned on the faucet in the basement washroom, faucet in the kitchen sink and right there and then, he knows what the problem was. He even covered the steps going to the basement with cloth before he brought his equipment down. It took him a few minutes to unclog the drain. He made sure the problem was fixed by flushing all the toilets in the house, running water in the kitchen sink, etc. He even gave me advice on how to keep the drain clear. All this for < $150.
Will definitely use Mayday Drain Services again and of course will recommend to relatives and friends.
