Zoom Drain Brand Story

Sending customers' worries down the drain since 1995, Zoom Drain is the leading expert in all things drains, with a passionate team leading the charge.

"Zoom Drain has set itself apart in the industry by being clean, being well-stocked and trained, because a lot of times you’ll call somebody and it’s just like one dude with the van, who may or not have insurance, who may not have been background checked, who may or may not know what he’s doing. It is a very fragmented industry and you never know what you’re going to get when you make that call. I think Zoom, with their reputation, with their constant training, and with the branding that they’ve done, kind of eliminates those worries for a business owner or for a homeowner who needs their services."
