Drain Stoppages – Tampa Bay area

Drain stoppages can occur suddenly or slowly grow worse overtime, but regardless of how they manifest, they mean a massive headache for home owners in the Tampa Bay area. At Midway Services, we understand the frustration and inconvenience that a plugged drain can cause. And when they do occur, they are often an immediate problem that cannot be postponed. That’s why we offer our emergency plumbing repair services 24/7, so that no matter what time of day, when you need drain cleaning or sewer line repairs, we’ll be there to help you out.

Causes of Drain Stoppages

5Any drain that evacuates water and sewage from your home can become clogged. This includes the bathroom, kitchen, and utility sinks, garbage disposals, showers and bathtubs, washer machine’s and especially toilets. In modern society we depend heavily on effective running water and sewage drainage in our homes. When they stop working it can range from inconvenient to life disrupting. Fixing a clogged bathroom sink might be postponed, but a clogged toilet in a single bathroom home is a huge problem.

But what causes stoppages in Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Tampa residences? Many blockages occur from misuse or build up, but some can even occur due to unavoidable external circumstances.

Let’s look at a few common causes of drain stoppages:

  • Common drain clogs caused by hair, toilet tissue, and waste
  • Items that don’t belong down the drain
  • Mineral or scum buildup
  • Damaged main sewage line due to:
  • Digging
  • Settling
  • Encroaching tree roots

While most stoppages are minor and easily remedied, the last on our list is often the opposite. That’s why we offer a free camera inspection with every main line stoppage cleared. We can evaluate and show you live video feed of the plumbing that runs between your home and the city’s sewer line. If we do find your main sewer line is damaged, we offer affordable solutions to fix the problem and avoid the inconvenience of having future stoppages in your home.

Had several bids to replace our entire HVAC system that crashed. Midway Services gave a great price and advice on the system we needed. Installed in 1-day and with extreme professionalism. We could not have been more satisfied. Their Techs were amazing and even cleaned the house before leaving. I was surprised that they did not even break for lunch so we got them pizza which they grabbed from time to time as they kept working. What a crew! Highly reccomend Midway and, in fact, we will be using them for the remodel of our bathroom and enlargement of our bedroom.

I have been using Midway Services for about 6 or 7 years. They have always been professional, responsive and good communicators. They respond quickly to needs of their customers every time. I have recommended them to several people. I give them an A+++

Midway Services is my call to outstanding work and professionalism by a staff highly trained to repair, remodel, replace and improve home ownership. After 26 years of owning and diligently caring for our home, it just began needing more assistance. A new hot water heater, toilets, tired bathrooms, hard water deposits, outlets that shut off, and the list went on. In the past seven months I have had the experience to work with Midway employees who have entered our home as professional members of a company they take pride in working for. Their work is outstanding. I can hardly wait for them to begin my kitchen remodel! I am proud to say Midway Services is a company I would highly recommend. Their customer satisfaction and work ethic is present every time a service person steps up to the door with Midway Services on that shirt.

We had an emergency with our AC unit one evening and Midway Services sent out HVAC service Dom L. He was fantastic! He temporarily fixed the problem so our AC worked that night until the part came in a few days later. Dom sat with us and gave us all of our options with prices. He made us feel very comfortable in choosing the best option for us (even since our unit was a quite few years old.) He was very upfront and honest on our options and let us choose the best route for us. We appreciated his honesty. We had some water leaking a few days later and we requested Dom back and he fixed the leak and replaced all the new parts that came in. He worked very hard and cleaned over and beyond (it was more cleaning that he thought.) He even took our wet rugs (we had in our garage) out to dry! He went over and beyond. He was very knowledgeable, hard working, kind and explained everything to us thoroughly. We would highly recommend Midway Services to everyone. They are very reliable, hard working, honest and Dom was exceptional!

I had a very good experience with Midway Services. A pipe had burst underneath the foundation of my home. In trying to get a handle on all that was needed, I called about 10 or so plumbers in the area. Some neither answered my calls nor returned my message, others never showed, and still others showed but tried to up-sell me on other things or showed a lack of concern for my particular situation. Mike from Midway, on the other hand, took his time in assessing the situation. While his estimate was in the middle ground, I could see he wanted to do his best to not disturb my home (even though the job required running all-new plumbing throughout). He also seemed to have a firmer hand on what the job called for. It seems my house was a particularly difficult case, as all the plumbers told me, but Mike went further to figure out the best plan with the least damage to the home. Mike came in and completed the four-day job as he planned. He also been very responsive after the fact, answering my calls and making himself available for any other questions I imposed. In all, I definitely recommend Midway for your plumbing needs.

A/C system had not been working for a while, even though multiple people had tried to fix it. Tommy and Joey came out and took care of the problem and were extremely professional and pleasant. Could not be happier with the service we received. Highly recommend this company.
