“i just had army veteran Shawn Clouse from Warrior Sewer and Drain blast out my underground downspout drain lines that were packed with mud and debris and backing up. Great guy! He came out quickly and was able to clear all the lines so I won’t have any more problems with these heavy spring rains. he explained everything he did and was very friendly and professional. definitely recommend him.”
