How to Hire a Professional Plumber during the Coronavirus Pandemic

We know it is not fun to imagine dealing with a burst pipe or sewer back-up at a time like this, but we want you to feel ready if something happens.

Here’s the thing about your home’s plumbing: it does not care about what is going on in the world. The reality that you’re dealing with a global health pandemic? It does not care. If your plumbing system breaks at all, you are in big trouble. We get that many of you are trying to adjust to working from home and self-isolation. We understand that some of you may have been laid off from your jobs. Just know that we are pulling for you. We wanted to offer a few tips of things to think about if you need a professional plumber within the next few weeks. We know it is not fun to imagine dealing with a burst pipe or sewer back-up at a time like this, but we want you to feel ready if something happens. Here are some ways to hire a professional plumber during the Coronavirus crisis

Ask Which Additional Precautions They are Taking as a Professional Plumber Due to Coronavirus

Good plumbers are very serious about cleanliness. But now especially, they should be able to give clear and direct answers to some of the following questions:

  • Which sanitation procedures do you have in place for your equipment and supplies?
  • Do you provide your crew with gloves, sanitizing wipes, masks, and eye protection?
  • When you arrive at my house, what can I expect in terms of hand-washing?
  • Can I pay you over the phone so I can avoid contact?

Make Sure They’re a Licensed Professional Plumber

Hiring a licensed plumber is very important, no matter what is going on in the world. After all, unlicensed plumbers can make costly mistakes that put your most significant investment – your house – in jeopardy. That is pretty much the last thing you need right now. Hire a licensed professional plumber from Alpha Plumbing so you can have peace of mind that your job will be done properly the first try.

Check Out Their Professional Plumber Reviews

All plumbers will tell you how effective they are. Don’t just take their word for it. Instead, check out their online reviews to see if other homeowners have had any good experiences with them. You are looking for a company with a reputation for fair prices, excellent services, and honesty.
