I don’t know about you, but I loathe having to call a plumber. The truth is, we will all need one at some point, and when you do, you’ll be glad they’re out there. But, how do you find a good one? They come in all varieties and they all claim to be the best. It doesn’t necessarily mean they are the best just because they’ve been around the longest. Here are some tips to help you choose the right plumber.
Questions to Consider When Looking for a Plumber
Experience – Try to find a plumbing professional with lots of experience. You can do this by asking your friends and family, going through the BBB, or even looking online for resources and reviews on companies.
Equipment Quality – The specialized tools plumbers need to use are often quite expensive. Observe whether or not they are using high-quality tools, etc. After all, if it were just basic stuff, then all households would have it and plumbers would not even be needed.
Reliability – It’s important to build a relationship that will last for years to come. Finding an experienced plumber is important. You will want to make sure that they have seen a wide array of plumbing issues and how to handle them. You also should check references and ask other customers if the company was on time, how they handled themselves while in the home, and if they cleaned up behind themselves before leaving the home. Also, if something was not done properly, they should be willing to come back to make it right without question.
Are They Clean? – It might sound silly to some, but you should find out the procedures the plumbing technicians use to ensure cleanliness. They should have shoe covers available if you prefer. They should never leave your home in a mess after a job is completed, and they should certainly look presentable and professional, as well as being courteous and polite to you.
As you can see, hiring any professional plumbing service to come into your home can be a daunting experience, but a bit of research and asking family or friends for referrals can go a long way to ensure the safety of your home and family. Never let anyone tell you that you’re being too picky—it’s your home that someone is coming into and you deserve to have the best service possible. Many companies now will offer to text a picture of the technician who will be coming to your home so that you can see ahead of time who to expect. This is a great service and shows the quality of the company.
