Summer has come to an end and the kids are back in school. At first, it can be a little hectic getting back to school routine, but it can also be a great reminder and good time of year to have a whole house plumbing inspection.
Why? What does my plumbing have to do with school?
The answer is simple and a great way to keep your house protected.
This time of year is about getting back into a daily routine. Also, it's a time of year that is getting close to fall, which means sooner than later we will experience cooler weather. Now that it's not too hot and not too cold, why not add a plumbing inspection to your annual back to school to do list? Now would be a great time to plan an hour or two to make sure everything is safe and working correctly so there are no emergencies later on.
The inspection doesn't take long and will ensure that all your plumbing is up to par. Think about this...your son/daughter plays outside sports and you all come home after a cold practice or game (of course they are muddy, too), and what?!?...there is no hot water! What to do? Well, that becomes an emergency fast. If that water heater had been looked over a couple months before, the problem may have been taken care of.
The piping in your house is extremely important, especially during the bitter cold months as we found out last year. Protecting them now may ensure no surprises later on. A plumber will be able to notice any exposed piping that would be in danger of freezing.
During the inspection is also the perfect time to ask questions about any plumbing that is concerning or something you may want to have changed. Some good questions to ask is where the main shut off valve is located, and simple ways to troubleshoot your garbage disposal.
Back to school can definitely be a hectic time of year. Having your house inspected to prevent any major calamities, which would surely put a wrench in the "daily routine", is an important and invaluable appointment to add to the back to school list.
Today's blog is only to appreciate our fine staff and how much they mean to us. Our office staff work hard every day to ensure our customers are satisfied and taken care of. There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes when dealing with customers, their plumbing issues, how to work the schedule when emergencies occur, making sure our customers are satisfied, and the list goes on and on. So much more happens on the day to day that doesn't even have to do with customers and service, but running the business itself, making sure everything is set up for success!
Our plumbers are a special group that truly cares about the company they work for and our customers. Day to day, they are in constant communication with our dispatcher making sure we do our best to service our customers to the highest degree possible. They do honest, quality work which is what we stand by.
The plumbing trade requires experience on a manual, technological and "know-how" level. Plumbing has been around for centuries and we're pretty sure the technology we have today is highly appreciated. We've heard and seen it all (a lot anyway) and are always happy to help!
We are so proud of our staff, who is a great team and family...we couldn't be more happy to celebrate them all on the same day! A BIG, HUGE THANK YOU TO YOU ALL!
Don't let the cool weather fool you! As we've seen the last couple weeks, the grass is getting greener and the rain has made its presence. Spring is a great time of year after a long cold winter, but with Spring, comes rain, and sometimes, lots of it! We recommend you check your basements frequently. If you have had water in your basement before, you might consider a sump pump installation. If you have a sump pump and experience problems, it might just be time to replace it. Nobody wants to deal with water damage, but having a good running sump pump can save thousands of dollars in damage and your own personal time cleaning up messes. We make the process as painless as possible and are happy to help with any questions regarding sump pumps, issues with them, if you need one, etc. Thanks for reading our blog today and hope everyone has a Happy Spring!
This time of year a lot of people tend to want their hard earned tax refunds to go into a remodeling project in their home. We have been over before, about contractors and making sure they are licensed in your city and are making the project flow smoothly for you. Here at Full Nelson Plumbing, Inc., we make the remodel experience just that, smooth. Although hiccups can happen, our customers are aware of what is happening throughout the entire process so there are no surprises. If you use a general contractor, once again, make sure they are licensed in your city especially if permits are required. Call us anytime to discuss your remodeling ideas and we would be more than happy to set up a time to come out and take a look!
Even though it is still Fall, the temperatures have plummeted this past week. Usually, this drastic change catches people by surprise. We have talked about this before, but now that the freezing temps are here, please remember to secure any exposed piping with heat tape or some kind of insulation. Make sure outside faucets do not have the hose attached to it.
Know where your main shut off valve is. This is very important if you get a burst pipe due to freezing.
We are here 24-7 to assist in any way we can with cold weather issues. Do not get caught off guard as it can lead to destructive and costly issues in your home. Contact us at fullnelsoninc.com/contact or call at 816-420-9697. Thank you and have a great weekend!
