Plumbers are one of the most important service men you can have on your one-touch dialer. Whether you have a stopped up toilet, burst pipe, or leaking hot water tank, time can be of the essence, and a quick response is necessary. But if you’ve never used a plumbing service before, just exactly where do you start? Let’s have a look at how to find one and what to look for in a top-notch plumber.
Ask Your Friends, Family And Neighbors Who They Use
One of the best places to find good home repair services is by checking with your neighbors and friends to see who they use. You can ask how good the service was and how reasonable the cost were, plus anything else you’d like to know about plumbers if you live in that area. It might be a good idea to make a list so you can do some research on the internet with their suggested plumbers to better locate your particular worker.
Realtor’s, Property Managers And Landlords Are Also A Great Source Of Information
Since people that deal with houses and properties need to use plumbers quite regularly, they tend to keep a list of the most reliable ones on speed dial. They can tell you how many minutes each one takes to get to the job because many times they’re there waiting for them to arrive. Again, it’s always best to make a list from their recommendations so you can check on them over the internet.
Now That You Have A List Go Online And Eliminate The Losers
As with any large list of service workers you’re going to find some that have gone out of business or have lost their touch, and should be avoided. You can do an online search for reviews to read what their customers have said, both good and bad, to help you make up your mind.
Take for example the video above, it may be silly and fun; but that doesn’t translate to the best plumber for you. Some things to totally avoid are any fraudulent businesses that don’t guarantee their work, don’t return phone calls, are dirty, and overcharge their customers. Look for plumbers that go the extra mile, have reasonable rates, and can handle emergency calls when needed. A high number of plumbing calls do turn out to be emergencies, so that is very important.
Finding just the right plumber is an easy task if you take your time and ask the right people. Then do some easy research online to weed out the bad and find the good. Always leave a review every time you have some services done so that the good guys reap the reward of their efforts by getting more customers.
