Before hiring a plumber in Kent, WA to clean your drains, it’s important that you ask about the estimated cost of the project. If you’re working with a certain budget, it’s best to let your contractor know so they can plan for how the project will be handled while taking your budgetary concerns into consideration. Bob Oates Sewer & Rooter offers free estimates. We do so because we want our clients to be able to prepare for the project and to at least be aware of whether a loan is needed or not.

If it turns out that your clogged drain is a lot more serious than previously thought, we offer financing options that can help you out.

License and Insurance

Before enlisting the help of a drain cleaning company, it’s imperative to verify whether or not they’re licensed and insured. Companies that aren’t insured and licensed may leave you legally and financially liable if damage occurs while doing the job.


A reliable drain cleaning services provider will have a physical location or an office where they operate out of, and you should be able verify the address easily. If the contractor cannot provide the address of their brick-and-mortar store, then they are most likely scammers out to get your money. Avoid such contractors at all costs.
