    We hired Smelly Mel's to install new main sewer line and replace all drainage pipes. The customer service was first-rate and very responsive. The work performed was done with the highest degree of professionalism and done quickly. I'm extremely pleased with the quality of the work.

    Travis was very knowledgeable and shared ideas based on his experience.

    4.0 Bill H. San Francisco, CA

    The work was done well. There were a few small issues, related to delays in cleanup. I would use Smelly Mel's use.

    4.0 San Mateo, CA

    Steve was on time, friendly and did an excellent job.

    4.0 San Francisco, CA

    Over all it was a good experience. The estimates were fair, the staff courteous, and the work was completed as scheduled. They were fast and left the work area clean and neat. The ony time when I felt frustrated was when they miscommunicated and I had to wait for 3 hours for them to show up, but fortunately it only happened once. I would definately hired them again.

    N/A R. F. San Mateo, CA

    I loved the service that Smelly Mel's provided. He was out right after I put in the request.

    5.0 Robert W. Belmont, CA

    They were a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. They went the extra mile and were helpful from advise to scheduling. They used the latest materials and techniques and didn't nickel and dime. First rate company. They'll be our only choice for plumbing in the future.

    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
