Your water main broke in the dead of the night and you start fervently searching for an emergency plumbing service. You try to recall the name of the contractor your friend had given you but your stressed out brain is not helping. You check the local directory and try to search on internet and come across a number of contractors in your area who all look the same to you.
How do you decide which is the right emergency plumbing service for you?
We discuss below some of the things you should keep in mind while hiring an emergency plumber.
First of all, check whether the plumbing service is available 24/7 or not and if they have a service number to call. A good plumbing service will always have someone available to return your call. Tell them about the problem and ask for their response time and an estimate. It is important to note that good contractors will be able to provide free estimate for the solution they propose. Kept in mind that most of the plumbing services have extra charges for providing service at odd hours. So if you are going to call a plumbing service in late hours, check their rates for emergency calls.
Another important thing to check is the number of years they have been providing service in your area. If they have been providing service for a long time, than you can rest assured that they must have been providing a good service as no business will be able to keep their shop open for a long time if they are not serving their customers well.
The emergency plumbing service you hire should be able to handle problems such as clogging of sewer pipe as well as slab leakages and leaking faucets. The best plumbing service should be able to handle both residential and commercial plumbing.
A plumbing service can handle the problems effectively only if they have all the requisite tools available with them. In most cases, a plumbing service with a good reputation in your area should have all the latest equipment to deal will all kinds of problems effectively.
Another way to check the experience a plumbing service has is to check the kind of services they provide. An experienced plumbing service will have expertise in providing all kind of services such as sewer cleaning, plumbing repair, kitchen renovation, solar plumbing, remodeling, gas line repair and installation amongst others. Their range of services offered will provide a good overall picture of their expertise.
