Drain Cleaning Services in Rockville, MD and across Montgomery County.

Is your kitchen or shower drain getting stuck or slowing you down? Is your toilet not flushing or is your bathtub backed up? Our plumbers have the expertise and equipment to effectively clear your lines.  

When Should I Call a Plumber for Drain Cleaning Services?

Drain lines are vital to your home because they carry waste water out. Clogs that go unaddressed could lead to a flood caused by back up.  You can try to tackle small clogs with a plunger or coat hanger. However, here’s when you really need the expertise of a professional plumber:

  • Stubborn stoppages: Did you or your kids accidentally flush an object down the line? Our top-of-the-line equipment can tackle difficult obstacles. 
  • The lowest drain in the house is backed up even when you don’t use it. If the lowest drain in your house like a shower, toilet or laundry sink drain is clogged, it is very likely that your sewer line has a blockage. 
  • Wastewater is pooling at the bottom of your shower, bathtub or laundry sink. When your sewer line is restricted, wastewater will begin to back up and pool inside the lowest fixture.

Why Are My Drains Clogged?

Reasons why your drains are clogged or sluggish

  • Obstructions: Objects accidentally dropped down the drain or flushed down the toilet will block drain lines and sewers. If not addressed, waste and toilet paper can accumulate on things that are stuck and completely close off the flow of wastewater.
  • Mineral buildup: Minerals deposited in your plumbing system create blockages that are tough to get rid of. Toilets and urinals are especially susceptible to mineral build ups.
  • Cracks: As sewer lines age, they are bound to crack and break. Toilet paper and other types of waste get snagged on jagged edges and before your know it, the flow of your plumbing system is impeded.
  • Roots: Tiny plant roots can fit through the smallest cracks or openings in your sewer line. Over time, the roots grow and eventually take up the entire width of your pipe. 
  • Grease: Grease from everyday cooking is often poured down the kitchen sink without much thought. Though it may seem benign, grease solidifies in colder temperatures. 
  • Broken Clean Outs: A clean out is a pipe with a cap connected to your sewer line that provides easier access when your sewer needs to be drain cleaned. The clean out is often in your front yard.  
  • Bellies and flat spots: Your sewer line relies on gravity to pull wastewater down the pipe. If the slope or the “grade” of your sewer line is off, waste can build up. The slope of your sewer line can be shifted by eroding dirt. Sometimes the sewer line was not installed properly and the soil settles to create a flat spot or belly. This is where waste builds up.

I had a great experience with Heil Plumbing DMV and I intend to use them for future plumbing needs.I hired Heil for two rounds of repairs to install an expansion tank, replace a length of sewage pipe, and carry out several smaller tasks.Our plumber, Jacob George, was always on time and provided prompt, professional, and high-quality service. What really stood out was the fact that, in addition to the repairs, he patiently explained exactly what he was doing and why, as well as what future issues could occur and what the relevant repairs might look like. He was also helpful in showing me how to winterize our outdoor faucet and adjust our water heater temperature.Customer service was easy to get in touch with for general information and scheduling purposes. Danielle was the person we generally spoke to and she was very helpful and efficient in answering our questions.On pricing: Heil was the second company we hired to provide an estimate for the work we needed done. The first company—another larger local company—charged for an estimate and came in double what our housing inspector thought would be reasonable. Heil did not charge for an estimate, and provided pricing that was close to our inspector’s estimate. Based on that experience, I consider them to be a good value for an established plumbing service, and honest about pricing and the scope of services needed to resolve a problem.

When you have plumbing issues and feel helpless and anxious, you must think it's the end of the world?!Who do you call? Heil Plumbing DMV! They do the impossibilities to possibilities!I replaced my old kitchen countertop, double sink, and faucet. The countertop company came and set up my new countertop and installed the new single sink. They disconnected the plumbing and garbage disposal attached to the old sink and left it hanging while still connected to the main pipe.There are a lot of plumbing companies in the DMV area, and I needed to figure out who to trust and rely on with my concerns. Luckily, I was narrowing it down based on customer reviews online, and long and behold, Heil plumbing was the perfect fit for the job!Mr. Jacob George is the man! He explained my current setup thoroughly, enumerating the flaws in how it was set up and how it should be based on the building code-plumbing.He opened two sections of my wall to find out if there were no leaks from the mishaps that got disconnected.He did an excellent job installing new plumbing and attached my new faucet and garbage disposal. Not to mention, he also put back two sections of my drywall.You rarely find someone these days going the extra mile in their job!Thank you to Heil Plumbing and Mr. George!It is just the beginning of our business and until next time!--Lemuel

Jacob from Heil plumbing came out to look at a leak in my basement ceiling and to give me a second opinion on my main drain line. He was incredibly thorough in both his investigation into the problem and in his explanation of the problem to me. When he left I had a definitive idea of what the problem was, a temporary solution and multiple options of long term solutions to pick from. I will be calling Heil for all of my future plumbing needs.

Been having a leak from the upstairs bathroom which has ruined the ceiling over and over after multiple plumbers had said issues were fixed. Came in and did hours of throughout inspection running infrared testing of pipes, floor, and ceiling. Found multiple leaks, with water seeping through floor around toilet, piping through floor, under the sink and bathtub seals. Resealed tub, reset toilet and repaired flooring, fixed sink. Was very courteous, professional, took pride in work. Went step-by-step of what was found, and what needs to be done to fix issues.

Jacob did a phenomenal job for us. He’s a huge asset to Heil DMV. He went way above and beyond the call of duty to ensure all of the pipe replacement work was properly done. He also took the time to explain everything he did. We are extremely grateful for the quality of his service and efforts. We give Jacob and Heil DMV our highest recommendation.

After previous plumber couldn't clear the drain, Jacob with Heil was able to devise an alternate approach that worked. He was clear that it wasn't a guaranteed solution, and gave me the option to proceed or not. Alternative was that our basement floor would have to be jackhammered according to previous plumber.

Needed rusted kitchen drain replaced behind cabinet and plaster wall. Jacob did the job with utmost care and professionalism. Pushed through to finish the job in one day instead of dragging it out. He also went above an beyond and installed the garbage disposal which was done without any additional charge. I will definitely recommend this company and specially Jacob!
