When you think of plumbers you probably think of someone you call when you have a leaky tap or an emergency, but plumbers offer much more than this. The vast majority of plumbers offer everything from bathroom renovations to central heating boiler installations and everything in between. However, your plumber should be experienced and hold the necessary accreditations for the job they are doing. For example, plumbers in Reading should be on the Gas Safe Register if carrying out gas heating related jobs. Highly regarded, reputable plumbers will also offer a guarantee on all work carried out and should provide a prompt response time if you notice anything amiss after the job has been completed. If you notice any of the following in your home or business premises you should contact your local plumber immediately:
- Problems with water flow
- Noises emanating from boilers
- Areas of damp around the water source
- Unusual smells
- Burst pipes
Although the above list is by no means exhaustive these are some of the more common problems people may notice and should not be overlooked. An experienced plumber should be able to give you a quotation after a brief assessment of the problem and give you an accurate timescale of when it will be completed. Be sure to make a note of the plumber’s contact details and store them on your phone, this is particularly useful in the event of an emergency and could save you valuable time and expense.
