Drains are some of the most problematic areas in plumbing, and at All Hours Plumbing, Drain Cleaning, Heating & Cooling, we specialize in drain maintenance among many other services. Our technicians will identify the issue and clear it up using years of specialized, professional expertise.
When you use a drain cleaning vendor without that level of experience, your pipes could be at risk. For this reason, it’s very important to ask several vital questions as you search for drain cleaning services. Here are a few of the queries to pose:
This is the first and most important question to ask of any plumber. Because of the rise of the internet and online classifieds, any amateur “handyman” can post a listing offering top-notch services at a great price – but only reputable dealers can provide the proper licensing and insurance. Licenses should be prominently displayed on websites or other public-facing areas, and proof of them should be available on the person of any plumber you call.
Insurance is what protects you, the homeowner, from any inadvertent damage caused by the plumber. It also pays medical expenses if someone is hurt while working. If you hire an uninsured vendor and one of these issues takes place, you could be on the hook for the whole thing.
Not every drain contractor provides other services that might be related – in some cases drain contractors don’t even directly clean drains, and rather outsources that work somewhere else. In general, look to avoid this and emphasize vendors who have full expertise in all related areas, in case additional problems crop up.
Some plumbers will have all the basic parts for your project in their service truck, with no extra charges beyond labor. In other cases, plumbers may have to charge extra for ordering out even very basic parts. Ask this question well in advance.
Some plumbers begin charging from the moment they head to your location, and may include gas or travel costs. This could be significant depending on the distance, so you should find out whether this is included in their fees.
