Imagine waking up to a clogged bathroom drain or a blocked toilet.
To many homeowners, a blocked drain may not be that serious. However, if frequent blocked drains are ignored or not handled on time, it can damage the entire plumbing system of your home.
Clogged gutters or blocked pipes can be due to tree roots, flushed pieces, broken pipes, debris, and dirt.
While minor problems can be solved but in cases where the drain is repeatedly getting blocked, a professional plumber can do a better job.
This blog will share some tips to help you find the right drain cleaning company to do a top-class job for you.
1. Certificates and credentials
Choose a company that has all the mandatory credentials like license, insurance coverage, relevant certificates, and any other important documents required to carry out the specific plumbing job.
A qualified and licensed drain cleaning plumber:
- has in-depth knowledge about all plumbing problems
- can confidently fix any blockage, clogging, and drain issue that needs immediate maintenance
- follows safety standards to prevent any damage
- has a strong code of ethics
- has insurance to compensate for any unexpected property damaged during the cleanup
Above all, working with a certified plumber will offer you peace of mind.
2. Work experience
However, don’t make any decision just by looking at the certificates and credentials.
It is equally important to ensure that the company has enough years of work experience and expertise to handle any drain issues.
From leaking taps, blocked toilets to clogged sinks and so much more, an experienced plumbing company has skilled staff and all the basic tools to diagnose and fix even the most complex drainage issue.
Inexperienced or amateur drain cleaning professionals may fail to identify and treat the plumbing problem and are likely to do more harm than good.
3. Services offered
Choose a company that offers different plumbing and drainage services, instead of a company that has limited itself to one or two plumbing issues.
For instance, with a clogged pipe, you may need other plumbing services like leak repair, gas fitting, and water filtration services.
This way, you can save time on hiring multiple companies for other plumbing issues. Not to mention, the company should be available for 24*7 services.
4. References & customer services
Many plumbing companies appear good on paper since they share fake certificates.
To avoid this issue, ask the company to provide you with a list of past customer references. This will help you assess their quality of work, customer service, and work efficiency.
You can also check customer reviews on the company’s website or social media accounts.
No price is too high to pay for your and your family’s comfort.
However, it doesn’t mean that you should hire the most expensive plumbing services in your area.
Choose a company that offers cost and time-effective services without compromising the quality and safety.
Ensure that the final payment includes all the necessary expenses like the cost of the plumbing supplies and labour cost.
In the end...
A working drainage system is a symbol of a fully-functional and heathy home.
Therefore, it’s important to choose a company that can cater to all your plumbing needs efficiently.
