Chesapeake Sewer & Drain Services

You know what they say about sewer and drain lines, right? Out of sight, out of mind. Yet just because you do not see these lines does not mean they aren’t among the most integral components of your plumbing system. Drain clogs can cause major problems for your home if not dealt with quickly and efficiently. And sewage damage is not only costly to clean up, but may pose serious health risks for yourself and your family. For sewer and drain services in Chesapeake that will keep your property clean and your family safe at all times, call American Mechanical. Our Chesapeake plumbers provide a full range of options for your sewer and drain system, and will work to keep your lines flowing smoothly for years to come.

American Mechanical proudly offers the following drain and sewer services in Chesapeake:

  • Drain Cleaning: If you have noticed slow water flow throughout your home, foul odors coming from your plumbing system, pools of water around your drains, or even back-ups in your sink, shower, and toilets, it’s probably time to call American Mechanical for drain cleaning. Our technicians offer drain snaking to break apart clogs and hydro jetting to scrub drain lines clean and pulverize even the toughest obstructions. The chemicals in liquid drain cleaners are toxic, and often eat away at your pipes rather than at clogs. Instead of using store-bought drain cleaners, call our Chesapeake drain cleaning experts for service that always gets the job done.
  • Sewer & Drain Line Repair: Whether due to clogs, leaks, corrosion, or general wear and tear, there is a good chance your sewer and drain lines will need to be repaired eventually. That’s where American Mechanical comes in. Watch out for problems in your bathroom sinks, toilets and showers/tubs, since these often indicate a larger problem deep within your sewer line, and make sure to call right away if you believe you need drain and sewer line repairs.
  • Sewer & Drain Line Replacement: In the past, drain and sewer line replacements used to be a major hassle. But with modern technology, our drain and sewer pros at American Mechanical can replace your lines quicker and cleaner than ever, leaving less mess on your property. We also work to restore our work area after every service appointment, so your property looks as beautiful as it did when we arrived.
  • Sewer Line Inspection: With a video sewer line from American mechanical, you may be able to identify and remove tree roots, broken/cracked lines, and foreign objects, and other obstructions you may never have found otherwise.

Tips to Properly Maintain Your Drains

Maintaining your drains is a key way to keep bigger plumbing issues from developing underneath and in the framework of your home. A bad plumbing clog could cause burst pipes, flooded rooms, and a big mess everywhere else. So it is integral to pay attention to these drains. There are a few great ways to maintain your drains by using preventative services:

  • Schedule annual drain cleanings - Calling a professional plumber to come clean out your drains on a yearly basis, or more often if you have a tough water source, can be the easiest way to prevent any sort of drain plugs. They can come to your home and use their pipe snake to check the status of your pipes. The pipe snake is a long and sturdy rod with a camera on the very end. This will give the plumber a great portrait of what is going on below the floor boards.
  • Install mesh screens over your drains - By installing wire mesh screens over your drainage points you can keep most of the solid waste that contributes to clogging issues such as hair, sediment, and food waste like bones from meat. These mesh screens are easy to install and not at all intrusive. They will require a bit of cleaning but it is worth it to prevent bigger plumbing issues.

Rave Reviews From Happy Customers

  • “American Mechanical responded quickly to my request for a detailed estimate on a needed service. The office staff was polite and professional as well as kind and courteous! Prior to the visit I received a text message telling me who to expect –including a picture- as well as personal information about the individual that helped me feel less anxious about inviting a stranger into my home. Rodney W. arrived exactly when he said he would and was clearly knowledgeable about the service and equipment involved. He explained everything in ways I could understand and was patient with my questions! I was impressed with this company and everyone there. It was so nice to talk to people who genuinely seem to like their jobs and were so helpful!” - Lynette B.
  • “This company is by far the best company that I have had the honor of working with. The whole crew from the administrative side to the installation crew are a pleasure to work with! Everyone is authentic and knows their stuff. Along with the generator I had an electrical panel upgrade. The panel is so neat and tidy inside that the panel cover should be made of glass so people can see the beautiful work these guys do! A++ rating from me.” - Michael A.
  • “I am in the market for a whole house stand-by generator and called American Mechanical for an estimate. They sent an electrician, Rodney W., who was extremely knowledgeable, courteous and likeable. He answered all my questions and gave me a complete proposal for a turnkey installation while he was at my house. The next day I had some more questions about the proposal. He answered them promptly and courteously. Nothing could have been better about this experience! If the installers exhibit the same qualities of customer service that Rodney does many American Mechanical customers will be very pleased.” - Tom C.
  • “We called about a gas leak and American Mechanical sent someone out promptly. Ed called when he was on the way and arrived on time. Off to a good start. He introduced himself and gave me his card. While I was taking him to the attic, he said he read the notes. He read the notes people! If you want your customers to feel like they matter, send a service person that recognizes you as a customer and knows your history. Kudos to Ed! He also fixed our problem, explained the problem, and gave us options to avoid the problem in the future.” - Sharon D.
  • “Wow! Ed S. at American Mechanical is one of the best professionals I have ever encountered. Ed is very patient, kind, and answers all questions – even from a worry wart like myself who may ask them multiple times. I had a new tankless hot water heater installed and was stressed when a few steps were needed to complete the project. Ed was always available to answer questions and he clearly has a ton of knowledge about plumbing and natural gas services. Thank you Ed at American Mechanical for providing quality service and doing the job right. Special shout out to Angela in the dispatch office for being so kind and understanding when I called – especially during these trying times kindness goes a long, long way.” - Heather F.
  • “Ed at American Mechanical fixed a plumbing issue that had been plaguing us for over a year! He was the best repair guy we have ever had! He was on time, professional and thorough. He shared his knowledge with our family about exactly what the issue was and stayed to make sure that everything was fixed. Ed was everything and more than anyone could want from a repair service. And, the women in the office of American Mechanical were so receptive and helpful! They were kind and seemed genuinely happy to answer the telephone, listen to me and they wanted to help me. American Mechanical is my best find this year! And, as an Operations Manager in my work life, I will be calling them for their expertise no only at home- but at work as well.” - Tania K
  • “My wife and I decided to go with American Mechanical to install our new GENERAC stand by generator unit. A team came to the house to install the preliminary work such as gas line preparation and installation of a transfer switch (to include wiring into the main panel). Trey, John, Chris and Noah were just amazing! They worked well together, orchestrated perfectly. As a handy man myself I can appreciate the extra care taken with everything they did. They were meticulous – and they actually use a leveler to make sure their panel and platform were level. You may laugh, but small attention to detail is what separates the professionals and the amateurs. We were very pleased with their work and they represent American Mechanical well. Staff like these men are the ones who are a valuable asset to their company!” - Raoul W.
  • “Rodney W. from American Mechanical repaired an electrical issue I recently had at my home. He displayed stellar customer service skills and the professionalism and knowledge of a seasoned electrician. Rodney patiently listened as I described the issue to him. He knew right away where the problem was and had the issue resolved within a short period of time! Rodney was very kind to Max, our dog who has absolutely no concept of his size but yet wants to “help”. Rodney and the American Mechanical staff made the entire experience pleasantly an easy one. He is definitely an asset to American Mechanical and truly appreciated by me. Many thanks to all!” - Kathryn B
  • “This is the third time Rich P. has come to my house for plumbing issues. Each time he has been very knowledgeable as well as pleasant. Rich also allowed me to watch him while he did the work and taught me as he performed the repairs. I have learned a lot about plumbing as a new homeowner all thanks to Rich. Thank you so much!” - K. Terry
