When my son told me that he had flushed some of his toy cars down the toilet, I wanted to cry. I was not having a good day as it was, and I had no idea how to get his toys out. He was very upset too, because one was his favorite car, so his crying on top of everything was not helping me. My husband told me to contact a company that does drain cleaning in Bronx NY rather than try to fish the toys out on my own. On a good day, I may have attempted that, but this was anything but a good day.
I had no problem calling in a professional for this. I needed to have the drains fixed quickly, because I was due for an hour long soak in the bath as soon as my husband got home from work. I did not want to have to worry about clogged drains because of a toy, as this would have meant that I could not enjoy my hour of alone time like I had been planning most of the day. I was able to get a drain cleaning company out within just a few hours, and I showed them the scene of the crime.
It did not take him long to look down the drain with a camera. It was a good thing that I had called him, because he told me that he was able to see some cracked pipes that was going to give us a major headache if we did not take care of it sooner rather than later. He was able to get the toys out, and my husband arranged for them to repair the cracks that they had seen in the pipes. The really nice thing about this, other than having functional pipes again, is that it did not cost us an arm and a leg either!
