Drain Cleaning

Home > Our Services > Drain Cleaning

Grease builds up in the kitchen, hair clogs in the shower, even toy trucks flushed down the toilet…Trust us when we say there’s no shortage of drain clogs in NYC and that none of them happen at a convenient time.

No matter the issue, our courteous, professional plumbers are dispatched day or night and arrive equipped with the latest electric drain cleaning machines.

Clearing the Common Backup or Stoppage

With an entire truck dedicated to drain cleaning, we arrive equipped with all the drain cleaning equipment needed to clean the most common fixtures in an apartment or the largest house drains in residential buildings. Even more important, unlike at many “drain-cleaning companies,” all Fred Smith drain-cleaning service technicians are plumbers as well as senior mechanics and are able to accurately troubleshoot a problem in an expert manner to be sure they are treating the cause and not just a symptom.

Maintain Drain Lines to Prevent Backups

Clearing emergency stoppages is certainly important. But it’s just as important to avoid an emergency by properly maintaining drain lines within plumbing, drain and waste, and ventilation systems. Fred Smith clears storm water lines, leader traps, roof drains, terrace and main house drain systems, including floor and window-well drains, and the maintaining of sump pits and ejector pits.

Video Inspection

Fred Smith Plumbing & Heating also provides a video inspection service complete with camera to inspect vent lines, drain lines, and ventilation ducts, as needed, by the building engineer and management.


Here at Fred Smith Plumbing we keep over 4300 different types of parts on hand so we can make a variety of emergency repairs for our customers at mid-night, Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve, or any other time when everyone else is closed.
