This is certainly the reaction that many readers give when they see the title. Believe it or not, plumbing services come in a variety of forms. Think about it; there’s different kinds of end customers, right? Of course there are! We are going to be taking a look at the different types of commonly performed plumbing services. You can google, “plumbing services la mirada ca,” and read further!
Residential or Commercial Plumbing Work?
Right off the bat, we see that there are essentially two (albeit much broader,) general categories for these services. Either you own a residential plumbing system that requires service or you own a commercial one. Maybe you are renting a commercial one and the terms of the lease require you to upkeep it? This is sometimes the case with the commercial jobs.
Repair or Remodel Work?
Here’s something to think about. Do you require an extensive repair to keep your plumbing going or do you need a whole new remodeled plumbing system? A different category of plumbing is required for each one of these situations. While many entities are experienced in a wide variety of plumbing services, you want to be sure that they are the best around for your particular needs.
Maybe your Trouble is with a Sewer?
Is there a possibility that the trouble you are experiencing has to do with a sewer? The same old theme certainly applies here. You will be dealing with another type of plumbing service; one that specializes in sewer issues. Sewers are altogether different beasts when it comes to plumbing. This brings us to something else that also is; hardware.
Maybe you have a Water Heater going Out?
Hardware, especially water heaters, are a commonly sought after repair. Water heater and hardware repair make up their very own category of plumbing services because of this. While most residential plumbers are quite experienced at these things, some will advertise this fact while others will not. It never hurts to check when you are calling around.
Make sure that you Perform the Basic Duties of Hiring any Contractor
You know the basics, right? You want a professional service that is licensed and is covered for worker’s comp. You also want to be sure that the entity carries some sort of general liability policy as well. If the entity sends sub contractors in lue of W-2 employees, make sure that each sub-contractor on your job is covered by some sort of general liability insurance policy. Worker’s comp coverage protects the plumbing company however general liability protects you, your home, and everybody involved with the job! All stakeholders are typically covered with GL policies.
Different Leaks have Different Needs
One last thing, if your problem happens to be a leak, remember that not all leaks are equal. While most residential and commercial plumbers can repair a wide variety of leaks, keep in mind that comprehensive leak detection is another category of plumbing service altogether! We say this because there are certainly services that specialize in the detection of difficult to locate leaks.
