If you encounter a plumbing problem in your home or business, you may be able to fix it on your own as long as it does not involve significant damage or complicated solutions. However, if you encounter any issue you do not feel comfortable addressing, or if your attempts have failed, you need the assistance of a professional plumber. Countless plumbers operate all over the country, and only a licensed plumber should touch any of the plumbing system in your home or business.
Just because a service provider claims to be a plumber does not mean the provider is qualified to handle your plumbing issues. Licensed plumbers complete specific training and certification programs to ensure they meet applicable regulations and standards and provide high-quality service to their customers.
How to Find a Licensed Plumber
Before you hire any plumber, take time to do some research on the plumber and find out whether the plumber has the necessary certifications to handle your issue. Most people know how to clear a clog one way or another, but you should only ever trust more complex plumbing issues to licensed professionals. Ben Franklin Plumbing is your local, licensed & professional plumbing company and we are available 24 hours a day.
Some of the plumbing issues only a licensed plumbing company should do:
- Sewer line clog removal and repairs.
- Drain cleaning and repairs.
- Severe toilet clog removal.
- Water heater repair, installation, and replacement.
- Garbage disposal repair, installation, and replacement.
- Water testing and water treatment.
- Pipe repair and re-piping.
These are just a few examples of plumbing problems that require the attention of a licensed professional. If you encounter any plumbing problem you cannot solve on your own, do not risk the integrity of your property’s water system on an unlicensed, uncertified plumber. Find a plumber with the appropriate licenses to handle the work you need. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of West Palm Beach offers professional plumbing services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and all of our plumbers have the appropriate licenses and certifications to get your job done right.
