Plumbers Vs Restoration Companies
When you own your own business and you run into an issue that requires a water damage restoration professional, what do you do? What type of water damage restoration professional do you call to fix your problem? Running a business requires a lot of time and money. Making sure you are hiring the right person for the job the first time around is incredibly important.
Depending on the issue you have (a burst pipe, backed up toilet, fire damage, or mold) will affect who you hire. Most of the time, you will deal with a restoration company or a plumber (or sometimes both). But how do you decide who to call? Use these definitions to learn the differences between these water damage restoration professionals and what they do.
What Does a Plumber Do?
When there’s a leak from a pipe, standing water underneath an appliance, or water flowing from an unknown source, our first reaction is to call a plumber. They are fully equipped to handle problems with your pipes, faucets, sewer lines, toilets, and more. Plumbers are trained to locate the source of a leak, like a crack in a pipe, a clog in a sewer line, or a kink in a water line. They will repair a crack, replace a pipe, or unclog a toilet quickly, as well as stop more water damage from occurring, ensuring no more damage to your business. On top of that, they will usually clean up standing water as they go, to make minimal cleanup for you and your crew.
