  • Remove leaves and debris from yard drains, window wells, gutters, and downspouts.
  • Apply Roto-Rooter Root-X once a year to prevent new root growth in your pipes.
    • If multiple drains in your home are draining slowly, invasive tree roots may be the culprit. Contact Roto-Rooters for efficient Milwaukee root removal.
