Benefits of Hiring a Commercial Plumber
Wednesday, January 25th, 2012
There are some benefits to hiring a commercial plumber beyond just keeping yourself out of hot water as well, of course. A commercial plumber is used to working at a higher level of professionalism. Not to knock those who specialize in house calls or construction, just that, because commercial plumbers are used to working in high-foot traffic environments and according to business hours, they’re used to having to do their work as quickly as possible and as professionally as possible. Still, the bottom line is that you need to hire someone who knows the law and can bring you up to code, or you’re risking your own license.
What it really comes down to is code. Code and regulations. As you know, running a business means that you have to bring everything up to code, and cutting corners only costs you in the long run. Bottom line: there’s no getting around the law.
If you’re running a commercial building, it’s very important that the plumber you hire is a qualified commercial plumber. In other words, the plumber you call to fix your toilet at home might not necessarily be qualified for commercial jobs. The plumber you worked with back when you did construction might not be qualified. You need to find someone who is specifically qualified to deal with commercial plumbing jobs.
So in essence, the basic fact, the reason that you absolutely need to find someone who is qualified and licensed as a commercial plumber, is that the law demands it. The law absolutely requires that a commercial building have facilities that are up to code. Yes, the nuts and bolts are all the same. A plumber who can repair a toilet at your house can probably install one in your office, but the fact is that they need to know what a commercial bathroom needs, they need to know the code, the regulations, or else you’re just going to wind up getting hit with fees and fines in the long run.
