The old saying goes that good things happen to those who wait patiently. But when you are dealing with a particularly nasty emergency, no-one has got the time of day (or night) to wait for good things to happen. This is particularly the case when you are utterly defenseless. Hands up those of you who can deal with a flooded basement anywhere within the Greater Toronto Area? No one. Thought as much. Fortunately, when you have stressfully made that sudden leak discovery in Toronto you will not have long to wait for good things to happen.
And just what exactly are those good things? After the leak discovery is made and the respondent distress call has been sent out, let’s just say that all the pertinent information is leaked, a rapid response team is sent out. A close inspection of the damage is made and within minutes, the rescue team sets off to work. It can take one hour or it can take several, it just depends how serious the damage is. Either way, a basement leak will be plugged as it were.
But first things first. In order for a leak to be repaired, or a damaged pipe to be fully replaced, the flooded basement area would still need to be cleared. With the requisite supplies and materials in tow, flood water is expertly, deftly and swiftly drained. This emergency action is part and parcel of the qualified and licensed plumber’s repertoire. Of course, he cannot fix the damage on his own. This is quite a job.
So, to help matters along, and in favor of the distressed client, the plumbing contractor ensures that he and his team are acutely knowledgeable. It is imperative for him to only have fully qualified plumbers on his team. Of course, a few years experience at handling plumbing and leakage issues common to parts of Toronto will always help. So far so good. Once the flood water has been drained, good things continue to happen.
Now the technical work can proceed apace. The damaged pipe can now be repaired. If not, and if deemed necessary, new piping will be installed. This can be done on the day because the seasoned team of experts has prepared themselves well for all eventualities. They have brought the requisite supplies and materials, all indicative of the latest industry innovations and standards. Ensuring that their clients will be safe throughout the duration of the emergency work and for the long term, the men at work have covered their bases.
They are fully insured and bonded. They are also assisting clients with their insurance claims thereafter. This makes sense and it is a helpful service addition. After all, they have had more than their fair share of flood damage as opposed to a client who is experiencing this for the first time. And by responding responsibly to city bylaws and building regulations, their good work remains fully compliant.
