Rescue Rooter® began in 1975 as a family-owned business in California, incorporating the Dandy and Pronto characters into their culture. The characters were created to visually translate the name and brand of Rescue Rooter to the public. The word “Rescue” means “to save or be saved from distress” and “Rooter” is a term commonly associated with plumbing; therefore, these two heroic plumbing characters became strong visual cues. Dandy represented the plumbers of Rescue Rooter, while his trusted sidekick, Pronto, represented a drain snake. ServiceMaster acquired Rescue Rooter in 1998 and ARS in 1999. These acquisitions added heating, cooling, and plumbing to their family of services, unified under the name of American Residential Services in 2000. ServiceMaster quickly began acquiring other HVAC and plumbing companies, merging them into their primary brands of ARS and Rescue Rooter. Anderson Heating and Cooling, E-Z Rooter & Plumbing, Crown ServicesSM, Axon®, Allied Plumbing Heating & Cooling, and Plug-Busters are just a few. n 2006, American Residential Services separated from Service Master forming a standalone entity under the leadership of Don Karnes- CEO and Dave Slott- President and COO. These visionaries launched the ARS / Rescue Rooter Network, unifying the locations with a common goal - United By Exceptional Service®. Additional acquisitions followed including brands such as Florida Home Air ConditioningSM, Blue Dot Services of MarylandSM, Will Fix ItSM, and RighTime Home Services expanding the national footprint of the Network.
