Called Ray while I was out of town to go rescue my wife from a clogged kitchen sink. He squeezed us in and worked until about 9pm. However this old house has goofy pipes evidently. He had to call it a night without being able to clear the clog after trying snaking at it from three different locations. He didn't charge and said he would be back the next day if we wanted, but would have to do a little more work to access the clog so it would be a little extra if we did have him back. I asked him to come back and again he fit us in at the end of his already full day. He ended up having to cut a small hole in the wall to access a Y that was the source of the clog (and should never have been built that way in the first place). He fixed the clog, cleaned up his mess, and was on his way. After all that the price was still very fair and my wife was back in business while I was still out of town.One funny story. Ray was still working in the kitchen when my wife and kids and in-laws sat down to eat dinner. My daughter (4) didn't want to hold hands for prayer. My wife explained how important is was to give thanks etc. From the kitchen came "Mmmm hmmmm" and my daughter cracked up and said "even the plumber says grace" and proceeded to hold hands. I wish I'd been there, it sounded pretty funny! Anyway, Ray's a standup guy and will give you 110%!!!

Plumbing Express LLC
Plumbing Express is a good company with quality service better than the rest. My basement had water back up starting Tuesday night around 6:00p.m and I was calling other companies who claimed to be 24-hour service with nothing but recordings or some would say that they would have to schedule me for the next day, something that I was trying to avoid. But by this time the damaged was already done so I started to call again which by now it was 5:00a.m early Wednesday morning. I came across Plumbing Express LLC reading their few reviews and decided to give them a try going from the few good reviews. When I called them it was 5:30a.m got a recording but by 5:45a.m I received a call back from a young man by the name of Washington he gave me a time as to when he could get to me to do the plumbing, Washington then told me that he would be at my home between 7:30a.m and 8:00a.m. And sure enough even though we had some bad snow he called and told me that he was in route, by 8:15a.m Washington was calling me telling me that he was backing up in my driveway. Washington is a kind young man who is very honest and also knows his stuff. So I say all of this to say that I would use Plumbing Express as long as I own a home or recommend them to anyone who may have a plumbing probably.

Deron was very nice but I had an appointment for Thursday and he said he needed to do some work elsewhere. Ok stuff happens I said Friday would be ok. He was supposed to be at my home at 9am. Didn't show up until 11:30 by himself to paint My living room dining room hall and bathroom. He missed some things and seemed to do a rush job. After he left I found drips on the floor (more drop cloths??) As well as missed areas like he didn't really do two coats everywhere. Lots of paint leftover. Not a truly professional job sorry but I wouldn't recommend him. No attention to detail and not focused on the job he was there to do.

Detroit Plumbing and Electrical
I had some electrical problems with a home I purchased 7 months ago. My two back bedrooms electrical was conflicting with one another. I got the yellow pages and started comparing prices. Got to Detroit Plumbing and Electrical and they gave me prices that was close to my budget. The service men were very well respectful and even wore shoe covers because of my light color carpet. I highly recommend them to anyone. After the job was completed they even gave me 15% off my next service.

This company was very friendly and knowledgeable about my sewer issue. They were willing to come out a provide me with a free estimate and ensure that their price was competitive. I appreciated that they kept me informed with everything that needed to be done days in advance as well as during the sewer replacement. After the project was completed I was informed and provided before, during and after pictures for my records.

This morning I experienced a back -up in my sewer line and waste water would not drain from the house. I called Plumbing Express LLC and a Technician was at my house within 30 minutes. The service Technician was very professional. While snaking the sewer line, he explained the process as he did the work. I was very impressed with the quality service. (Keep up the Fantastic Work)

Mr. Williams arrived slightly earlier than he stated. He was very personable and knowledgeable. He offered an excellent price for the work needed and the work was performed in a timely fashion. Once he finished it was almost like he had never been there because he was so neat while working. I would recommend Drain Clean Pro LLC to anyone needing plumbing work done.

Jones 911 Payless Plumbing Service
ThisCompany is a great company, Mr Jones came when I needed him in the time of desperate need of a sewer cleaning because my drain backed up. He was fast, he was friendly, and he got the job done in a timely manner. The first time I used company was 3 years ago I haven't had a problem until recently, and better believe I called this company back!!!! :-)
Tips & Advices
The following tools and common household objects can be used to clean drains at home:
  • A plunger
  • A drain snake
  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar
  • Grease-fighting dish soap
Homeowners can mix boiling water with any of the last three products to break up grease and grime.
The main ingredients in clog removal liquid products are sodium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite. According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, both break down into relatively harmless components when it comes into contact with water or soil. However, both substances cause mild irritation to skin and internal tissues.
Also known as a drain auger, a drain snake is a coiled device around ΒΌ-inch thick. To use a drain snake, put the end into the entrance of the drain. Turn the handle to force the snake deeper, using extra pressure to force it through the bend in the pipe. Keep turning until the snake hits the clog, then either pull the snake and remove the obstruction or force it through. Once the snake is out of the drain, run the water on full blast for a few minutes to ensure the obstruction is completely removed.
Plungers don't damage residential pipes, but the force created by the act of plunging weakens the seal between the toilet and the floor.
Many plumbers, both local businesses and nationwide chains, offer emergency or same-day services.
