Everyone knows plumbing is a messy, dirty job. We count on plumbers to do what we can’t so we can live with the luxuries of indoor plumbing and water heating. It would seem that despite their necessity, many people have some misconceptions and myths regarding plumbers we wanted to set right. Below are three things we wish our clients knew.
1. You Can Call 24/7!
At Smith’s Plumbing Services, we understand that plumbing emergencies happen anytime, which is why we are available 24/7. Don’t feel bad for calling at 2 am if you’ve got an emergency! Plumbing is an all hour of the day job, if we answer the call, we can help you.
2. Don’t Wait for an Emergency
Leaky kitchen faucet? Running toilet? Dripping basement pipes? If these sound anything like your situation, don’t wait until disaster strikes to call us! Often drippy faucets and running toilets can be fixed with a simple service call. If you let the problem build until disaster strikes, you may be facing a much bigger, more expensive plumbing job. Not only that, your home may have suffered water damage, which can add even more to your repair bill.
3. Maintaining Your Home Appliances is Important
Your home appliances need regular check-ups and maintenance to ensure they’re running smoothly. Water heaters should be flushed out yearly and failing to do so could result in the anode rod corroding. Most of the instruction manuals have some basic information regarding regular maintenance; consider reading through these for a more specific idea of what your homeowner’s responsibilities are.
