What Is the Difference between a 24 Hour Plumbing Company and a Normal One?
A 24/7 plumber is a plumbing company that provides services every hour of the day, and not just the standard 9-5 hours. These companies are referred to as emergency plumbers, due to the fact they will respond to any emergencies any time of the day. Usually, these services can be quite expensive, and people normally try to avoid using them unless a situation is severe.
Traditionally, plumbers, electricians and similar tradesmen come with a set amount of hours which they work. Customers will make an appointment, and a plumber could re schedule other appointments, in order to be able to accommodate any serious issues; however, customers are unable to get help when calls are outside of normal working hours, unless by prior mutual agreement. For instance, a plumber could agree to work a Saturday in order to complete a job, normally charging a premium rate to do this.
A 24 hour plumbing services are available anytime. Homeowners normally call such services when they are experiencing an extreme plumbing emergency which cannot be put off for the next day, like burst pipes, which causes structural or property damage. The 24-hour plumbing service will quickly respond, addressing the problem, and making recommendations for any extra work which could be necessary.
Homeowners try not to use such plumbing services, due to the extra expense. But they could use a plumber that offers a 24 hour service because they want to work with the same plumber. A plumber may, for instance, be scheduled to install a sink during a kitchen remodeling job in regular working hours, and they could also be available after hours if anything goes wrong with the job.
Landlords and tenants benefit from having the contact number of a 24/7 plumber, although tenants should contact their landlords first if they have problems. Some things to consider when choosing a 24/7 service are, reputation, fees charged, and services provided. It is an excellent idea to also plan ahead when possible, instead of looking for a 24/7 plumber in the telephone book at 4am in the morning, when a major problem is going on.
