It’s tricky to know what differentiates one plumber from the next. But this is especially important for business and commercial interests, where any time where your business is without vital services can cost you revenue. This can all add up very quickly, so it’s important for every business to have a commercial plumber that you can trust to provide quality service consistently, promptly and fairly. Here are JCS Plumbing’s recommendations of what to look for in a commercial plumber for your business.
Commercial Plumbing License & Insurance
Plumbers providing commercial services are required to have licensing for this purpose, and insurance that covers them for liabilities of $10 million and above. This licensing gives you guarantee that the plumber has indeed completed qualifications to perform commercial work, and the insurance gives you the peace of mind that, in the event of a problem or incident, the plumbers’ insurance will provide you with remuneration for your financial losses.
While it’s easy to access plumbing videos on YouTube and get the sense that plumbing is easy, commercial plumbing can be highly complex and the fall-out of a poorly completed amateur job can be devastating. Equally, employing a plumber that is qualified but inexperienced in the work you require, you may still discover yourself requiring the services of an experienced plumber anyway. While it may seem more expensive initially, the extra outlay is certainly worthwhile for the better outcome and peace of mind. (Related Article: Questions to Ask When Hiring a Commercial Plumber)
There’s a great deal of comfort in knowing that a plumber has performed enough work in the past few years to have garnered a healthy bank of positive reviews in the online world. Try to look for a commercial plumber with a consistent history of four and five-star reviews, so you have some reassurance that you are choosing a reliable and professional operator.
That being said, it’s often the case that plumbers with an otherwise good review history may have some negative reviews. This happens to even the best plumbers. What matters is how the plumber has responded to the criticism, and what sense you have of how the incident played out. But if you are uncertain, feel free to contact the plumber in question and get a more direct sense of their professionalism.
While it’s one thing to find a good commercial plumber, it’s important that you find a plumber that actually provides the services you need, and probably some more complex services around your specific needs at this time. You want to build a relationship with a plumber so that you know who to call in the event of future problems or an emergency. So, choose a plumber with experience in your industry, and experience beyond your current requirements.
Ensure that your commercial plumber is able to provide services at times that match your commercial needs. Your plumber may not need to be a 24 hour operator, but it is best if they provide services when you are operational.
