Hi my name is ***** ***** I have been in the plumbing field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today. What did they tell you that they fixed? How did you feel about the way that they treated you?
That sounds like the typical experience from Roto Rooter. This is no time of year to be trying to sleep without AC on for sure. If the smell is overwhelming then there is likely not a danger to you but could possibly cause some respiratory aggravation. If it is an option and the smell is quite terrible then staying elsewhere tonight may be the best move. I would also recommend cancelling the Roto Rooter plumber and calling a plumber that is locally based with good reviews. It is up to you if you want to pay Roto Rooter. It certainly seems that cleaning and drying would have no affect if the leak is still happening. If they removed a blockage then maybe some of the bill can be negotiated but if you end up spending the night in a hotel because they left everything a mess then you have an argument in your favour also.
I haven't heard from you. Was the information I provided helpful?
