Plumbing Is Essential

With the Coronavirus pandemic looming front and center in everyone’s minds, we have all had to refocus our priorities. Making sure we are stocked up on food, toilet paper, and even medical supplies now seems more important than saving for that next vacation. Many of us are juggling the responsibilities of parenthood with working from home. And of course, we’re all practicing social distancing and avoiding contact with those outside our immediate households as much as possible.

However, even in these uncertain times, it’s good to know there are a few things that remain the same. For instance, plumbing is an essential service, so Smith’s Plumbing Services is still here for you.

According to the White House, plumbers are part of America’s “essential critical infrastructure workforce.” This decision was released in a memo from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency, which is overseen by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Under America’s “Public Works” sector, the CISA clearly includes, “Workers such as plumbers, electricians, exterminators, and other service providers who provide services that are necessary to maintaining the safety, sanitation, and essential operation of residences.”

What does this mean for you? It means you can still call Smith’s Plumbing Services day or night. Our skilled plumbers remain available 24/7 for emergency repairs, in addition to offering our full range of plumbing service options.

Nothing is more important to Smith’s Plumbing Services than the well-being of our customers and our employees. That’s why we have updated our safety measures, in order to protect the health of our entire community. We also urge everyone reading this to do their part and continue following the advice of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): wash and sanitize your hands frequently, avoid contact with those outside of your household, cover coughs and sneezes, wear a mask when out in public if possible, and clean and disinfect surfaces often. Together, we can help save lives and stop the spread of this deadly disease.
