    0.50 Daena A. Chicago, IL

    They said they were coming and did not show. I had to call them 40 min after their scheduled time for arrival for them to tell me they were sorry and no one was going to be able to make it anytime soon. I had to leave work and take time to have them come and no one called or was going to call to tell me they weren?t coming.

    They came out to look and only want to pour draining in the the tube and snake it to clear. They didn't even lease try to open the trap and see if it would turn. And want to charge me 225.00 dollars for the job. We said thank you. And sent them away.

    5.0 Alejandro C. Chicago, IL

    Arrived within an hour of the call. Double and triple checked my clog til it was fixed and gave me some useful information. Very friendly and professional, ask for Junior!

    fast quality service

    4.0 Ian P. Chicago, IL

    Great work, friendly contractor, but severely overpriced. Even for an emergency service.

    5.0 Carmenlita P. Chicago, IL

    I was very satisfied

    5.0 Constance J. Chicago, IL

    I appreciate that he was timely and was able to complete the job in a relatively short amount of time going thru the outdoor catch basin and not from inside the house.

    5.0 Bill S. Plainfield, IL

    Very professional and understanding.

    5.0 Duane C. Chicago, IL

    2 guys came out. Great attitude - knowledgable and finished the job quickly. Earier in the day I had Roto Router come by. However, the cost was considerably high - I was NOT provided with a written estimate and tjhe guy started the work. I called Roto Router to complain and had the guy stop the work. He then offered a lower price which seemed shady. And I asked him to leave. Captain Rooter was excellent. I will surely have them come back again if I have any more plumbing issues.

    Seal of Approval

    What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
    2. Verify Insurance
      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
    3. Verification of State Business Filings
      For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
    4. Criminal Records Search
      HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
    5. Sex Offender Search
      We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
    6. Bankruptcy Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
    7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
    8. Liens Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
    9. Identity Verification (SSN)
      HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
    10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
      We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
