5 Ways to Avoid a Sewer or Drain-Cleaning Scam
1. Know how to spot the wrong questions
Some business owners prey upon the elderly and widowed. They train employees how to spot a susceptible candidate, and then teach them to ask questions.
2. Watch out for “evidence”
Employees of dishonest company owners learn techniques to convince homeowners they have problems that are more serious than they actually are. Some travel in pairs.
3. Make sure you’re not watching a rerun
Video inspections and jetting can be valuable tools for our industry if used properly, but when put in unscrupulous hands, they can cause people misery.
4. A few notes about liners
Sales teams often pitch that the best thing about liners is that you don’t disturb landscaping through excavation. This is true, but you also don’t get a new pipe.
5. Remember the basics
Remember to check the background and research reviews of your sewer cleaning company.
