Plumbing emergencies tend to occur at the worst possible times. If you experience one at your Las Vegas, NV home, it’s important to have an emergency plumber a phone call away who you can trust to come out and get the job done reliably and at a reasonable price.
This means you’ll need to do some advance planning so you’re at least somewhat prepared should such an emergency situation arise at your home. Choose your emergency plumber now, so you don’t find yourself frantically searching Google business listings while your bathroom is flooding.
Here’s an overview of things you’ll need to know to choose a 24/7 plumber in Las Vegas, NV.
- Do your research: Spend some time combing through listings of plumbers in your area. Your first step should be to narrow the list to those who offer 24/7 emergency services—not all plumbers provide these services. Next, search through some reviews of these different plumbing companies. Look for companies that have a lot of reviews that are generally positive—these are companies that can be trusted. Individual negative reviews don’t typically mean a whole lot, but patterns of negative reviews should be treated as a red flag. Finally, check for certifications and licenses to make sure you’re working with a qualified company.
- Get quotes for services: Emergency services tend to be higher priced than standard plumbing services, so it’s important to have an idea of what plumbers charge for these services before you need to call them to visit your property at 2 in the morning.
- Check the location: When you’re in need of an emergency plumber, the closer they are to your home, the better. You don’t want to have to wait for them to make a half-hour commute out to your home. Find someone who is close by, right in your local area, that you can trust with any job that arises. The less time you have to wait in an emergency situation, the less damage you’re likely to have to deal with.
- Check the services: Make sure you get a good sense of the specific services they’re able to provide in emergency situations. Emergency plumbers should offer services such as repairing leaks, fixing clogged sewer lines, cleaning out drains, fixing broken water heaters, replacing sewer lines or water heaters, replacing pipes and dealing with frozen or burst pipes. The broader their round-the-clock service offerings are, the better they will be able to meet your needs.
Once you feel like you have a good choice for an emergency plumber, make sure you’re prepared for the arrival of an emergency situation. Program their phone number into your phone so you don’t have to waste precious minutes looking it up. And if you have other plumbing jobs come up before then, use that plumber for standard plumbing issues so you develop a level of comfort with them outside of emergency situations.
