3 Reasons to Contact a Professional Plumber

Sooner or later, every household experiences plumbing problems, and the first instinct is doing the job yourself. After all, there are plenty of store-bought cleansers, snakes and other tools available at any hardware store promising to do the job. Unfortunately, by trying to do the job yourself, you may end up costing yourself a lot more in the long run. Chicago, IL has the professional plumbers of Reliance Plumbing to handle any issues with your pipes and faucets. Here are 3 good reasons to contact us instead of trying to do the job yourself.

1.     Experience

The average person will only need to deal with plumbing problems a handful of times in their life. Professional plumbers, on the other hand, do so every day of their careers. They’ve seen every permutation of a given issue and they know how to fix it properly. That means a speedy and accurate diagnosis followed by a proper repair.

2.     Equipment

Store-bought remedies for clogs and leaks often adopt a one-size-fits all approach, using generic tools applied to a wide array of problems. That often results in incomplete repair jobs. Professionals, on the other hand, use specialized equipment designed to address the precise problem you have, helping to ensure that it stays fixed.

3.     Cost

In the event something goes wrong with a do-it-yourself repair, you’re on the hook for any additional expenses… which can end up costing a pretty penny. Professionals, on the other hand, are licensed and bonded, and can give you an accurate estimate of the costs well before they start work. Do-it-yourself jobs are often undertaken to save money, but you can usually save more by having a trained plumber performing the repairs.

Reliance Plumbing is fully accredited by the Better Business Bureau, and stands by the work performed by its expert technicians. If you have a problem with your plumbing, then pick up the phone and give us a call today!
