It is stating the obvious, is it not? Or were you never aware of this before? The Toronto plumber only means anything to anyone who is living or operating a business within the Greater Toronto Area. Fair enough, but just how valuable is that plumber. The question can be asked of urban residents and business owners in any other part of the continent or, for that matter, the rest of the world. The article heading has said quite a bit already. To respond to just how valuable your nearby or neighborhood plumber is to you, it places a little focus on emergency services. This is not forgetting that there are other important criteria as well.
Your non-awareness at this point in time may have something to do with the sense of complacency that tends to settle in at hearth and home when all is seemingly well for a very long time. Bad things only happen to others, but never to you. But believe this; it can happen to you as well. So you had best be prepared. Particularly if you are running a business, you should never leave things to chance. Rather be prepared.
That way you know that when there is the potential for a crippling disaster, you have your bases covered and the damage can be swept away in less time than it would otherwise have been if you left things to chance. This preparedness is so important if you are running your own business. If you chance your arm by never committing yourself to a service maintenance contract with a plumber, or at least have him standing by as one of your emergency calling cards, you and your business are in serious trouble.
As a business practitioner, you should be practicing this already. This is both good housekeeping and good risk management. Part of that good risk management practice, and it is quite important, is allowing qualified essential service providers to carry out the necessary maintenance checks within consistent time frames. You will, of course, be required to pay a maintenance fee, and this has been the downfall of many a business that did not take up the offer.
They falsely believed that they could save a buck or two in circumventing this essential service. But at the most unexpected and most unfortunate time, the damage was done. Even when the emergency was swiftly dealt with it cost the business a fortune. There could have been other areas of damage and collectively, all this cripples a business. The regular maintenance call from your qualified, experienced and accredited plumber saves you and your business in the long run.
But no matter what, emergencies can still arise. And it is a great deal safer having an available plumber already on call twenty four hours a day to call on. Going forward, take heed of your plumber’s housekeeping and risk management suggestions.
