Drain Cleaning Services in Columbia, MO and
all of Mid-Missouri

Slow or clogged drains can be a sign of a more serious issue. It’s important to have great water quality. Hard water creates build up that can snag other debris (hair, grease, organic material) causing a clog. Many people believe it is okay to use a caustic liquid to clear these drains. It’s really not a good idea. Those retail drain cleaners can damage your pipes, leading to leaks and significant damage to your walls, floors and other areas of your home. The proper solution is professional drain cleaning from MasterTech Plumbing, Heating and Cooling.

Most people think of drains as those things found in the kitchen sink, bathtub/shower, bathroom sink, washing machine, etc. Those drains flow into the main sewer line. This line is often accessible via a floor drain, which you might recognize because it is a big hole covered by a lid with many holes in it. Most often this floor drain is near your water heater and/or HVAC system to allow those units to drain into it.
Your garbage disposal also ultimately flows into the main sewer line. Putting food scraps down your garbage disposal can lead to grease build-up in your pipes, which can ultimately lead to a major blockage. It’s best to scrape off and wipe out bowls into a garbage can before rinsing them in your sink. If your disposal becomes jammed or causes a blockage, it’s time for professional drain cleaning.

Never pour liquid cooking oil from a fryer or grease from a skillet down your drain. Once it solidifies, you’ll end up with a plugged sink drain that will need professional help to clear & clean it out. It could also be a significant contributor to a blocked sewer line, and trust us, you don’t want that to happen!

If your sewer line gets clogged, it can create all kinds of disgusting, and expensive, problems in your home. Contaminated water, raw sewage, and other nasty stuff can fill your bathtub, rise up out of the floor drain and cause your toilets to overflow. You’ll want professional drain cleaning services from MasterTech to get this problem fixed, and then we recommend hiring a professional restoration company to ensure it is properly cleaned up and your health is protected.

      What Causes Clogged Drains?

      The most common cause of clogged sewer lines is roots. Trees, shrubs, bushes, etc send out underground tentacles to bring in water and nutrients. Unfortunately, these roots often invade into sewer lines where they have cracked or broken from ground settling. The roots then snag solid waste, mud, rocks, hygiene products, and wipes which leads to a blocked sewer line. Root intrusion is not “normal” in a sewer line, and if you are dealing with it year after year, then it’s likely that more comprehensive repairs are needed. (i.e. relining or excavation and replacement). The first step is to have the sewer drain line professionally cleaned, then have it inspected with a camera. MasterTech offers a FREE camera inspection under these circumstances ($200 value)!

      Do please understand that in some circumstances, the solution to a blocked or clogged drain requires a more significant repair. This can include:

      • clearing the sewer line and using a specialized process to “reline” the interior of the pipe
      • excavating a portion or the whole sewer line to replace it with modern materials designed to resist cracking/breaking and root intrusions

      Fortunately, MasterTech is well-versed in drain cleaning services to get your drains flowing again and keep them in working order. We use a variety of methods to clean your drains. Our Master Technicians will provide you with a written, fixed price up front and get your approval before starting any work. Call us today to schedule a service call.

      Matt and Nathan came to replace an outside hydrant. Nathan made a great suggestion to move it to a better place. They did a GREAT job and left my... place way better than they found it. I am HUGELY grateful. They were professional but super nice and pleasant to work with. They had everything they needed on the spot and were done in no time. I am beyond pleased with their work and would call them again in a heartbeat. I am so relieved to have this work done!read more

      These guys are good! Set up an appointment online and the next day they called to confirm. Yes! Let me know they were on the way. Told me up front... how much it would cost and then, did everything he said he would. Polite, clean and kind. They come when you need them! I will call them every single time. Thanks Mastertech!read more

      Since I recently bought a house that's a little older everything is starting to go out at once. I have called Mastertech twice in the past couple of... weeks for my water heater and my air conditioner and both times they came out and fixed the issue quickly. They told me the price before they started work and in the case of my water heater they gave me a few different price options based on what repairs they recommended. I have a few more minor things to do still so I will definitely be calling them back. Everyone I dealt with both times in the office and service call were super helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend if you need something done fast and right.read more

      We had a technician come out to fix a major leak under our kitchen sink. He also removed the garbage disposal. Unfortunately there was a clog beneath... the work that he did so he didn’t notice it while he was at our house. We called later that day and they sent a technician 2 days later who was a “drain specialist.” He asked incredulously “he didn’t snake the drain?” This reinforced the idea that this all should have been done in one visit. Nearly $700 later we have a functional kitchen sink/faucet. It took about a week from the first call to get this all done. I wish it had been a bit more timely because we were without a kitchen sink the entire time, but I understand they are busy so it’s okay. My biggest complaint is the price. It took minimal supplies and maybe 1.5 hours between the two employees. Seems exorbitant.MasterTech responded to my review and concerns in a very thorough and professional manner, so I added a star to my review. I am not 100% satisfied so I can’t justify a 5 star review, but I would recommend them based on the service provided.read more

      Sunday we had water leaking. I called them on Monday. MasterTech initially scheduled us on Wednesday. Later they called me and said they could send... a tech in 1 hour. It is a surprise, a good surprise. Chad came in time and got the job done in 1 hour. He also gave us some good advice to prevent pipe freezing. So far, the work is good ( it is Tuesday now). I am satisfied with the company and Chad.read more

      Had a great experience with MasterTech recently. The water heater in my house needed replacing. I bought the replacement myself, but wanted... professional installation. The technician assessed the job quickly and accurately and was right on time. When the time came to do the replacement, he was again right on time. When he left, we had functional hot water, a shiny new heater, and absolutely no mess to speak of. John was extremely professional and friendly, and was willing to answer any questions I had thoroughly and, I felt, honestly. The price seemed fair based on the work and the average cost in the area. Definitely recommend, but always suggest doing comprehensive research for any job you need done!read more

      The were on time, did an excellent job and were reasonably priced. What more can you ask for? I would definitely hire them again. I hired them again... since then (6-21-20) and they were great again. I won't hire anyone else.(6 months later) There was a problem with something they installed (not their fault). They came out immediately, fixed it and there was no charge. You can really depend on this company. I highly recommend them.read more

      For a perfect 5 star I would expect above and beyond what I expected. And yes I know that isn't exactly a coherent thought. Our issue was fixed and... our tech was amazing and spot on, he did exactly what we asked of him, and then some! He helped us shim our toilet as well because it was rocking a little.Honestly because of that extra effort he put in I am going to change it to a 5 star. Awesome work Mastertech.read more

      I cannot speak highly enough of Master Tech and their staff. It's currently -8 and I woke up to my home at 54 degrees. I left a voicemail for MT at... 7:30 and received a call at 8:08 AM and a technician was at my home at 9:40 AM. Snow was blocking my external exhaust on the home, so it couldn't create combustion to turn on the furnace. The fix was rather simple, but took time and thinking through the problem. Tyler was amazing. The service was 10/10 and he really took the time to explain to me what was happening. I have a monthly service plan with this company too - that I started in October - and it's been great. They are always on time, professional, reasonably priced and so good at their job. I cannot recommend them enough!!read more

      Nate is amazing!!!We had a running toilet and a broken water shut off valve on a Sunday. He called and walked us through how to shut everything off... until he could get there. Once here, he took the time to show us how to do everything he was doing. It’s so nice learning from a pro! He had us up and running in no time. Highly recommend Nate!read more
