It’s happening. You hear gurgling in the toilet. Your bathtub is taking a little too long to fully drain. You start smelling something funny throughout your home. Nobody wants to deal with a dreaded sewer backup, however, if you are experiencing one, it’s important to know what to look for when searching for a reputable sewer cleaning company. Whether you need a sewer cleaning or another home service, the tips below will help you in your decision to hire the best home services company to get the job done.
- Do your research! We can’t stress this enough. Most home service companies are “digital,” meaning they have a website and online presence. Take a look at websites and search the company on Google. You’ll not only learn more about the company and the services they offer, but you may come across a coupon or special offer too!
- Check out online reviews. Does a company have lots of positive reviews? Are customers generally happy with the service and recommending the company to others? Does the company take time to respond to both positive AND negative reviews? Some good places to check reviews are Google, Facebook and the Better Business Bureau.
- Get to know the technicians. What information is available online about the service technicians? Are they background checked? Do reviews state they’re professional? Many companies send you a photo of your technician, or at least can give you his name. It’s always helpful to know these things and have this peace of mind when the technician arrives at your home.
- Know your price. A respectable home service company should be able to give you a price quote over the phone when you call to book your service. Beware of companies who attempt to tack on additional charges and/or services once your initial service is completed. While there definitely are times when further work is necessary, it’s always a good idea to get a second opinion, especially if the additional services you’re being told you need are costly.
