Do I Need a Licensed Plumber to Fix My Plumbing?

Posted on: June 7, 2016

Up Close of Clamp | Plumber TampaWould you let anyone but a dentist drill your teeth?  Sure, there are certain things you should be able to do on your own – the DIY approach!  Tightening faucets and replacing toilet flappers are pretty straightforward tasks and can be done on a Sunday afternoon.

On the other hand, when plumbing problems occur, there is no easy way out for the untrained.  It’s just like anything else in life.  If you are trained in something and do it every day, you are going to become an expert.  Working with flux and solder is fairly simple, but if you haven’t done it in a while, it can become tricky very fast.

It is always a good idea to hire a professional plumber to handle your major plumbing issues – like changing your water heater or finding a hidden water leak.

Finding a plumber that is certified by the State of Florida might be a challenge.  Many plumbers and plumbing companies claim to be professional but have not earned a Florida State Certification.  This is a very comprehensive process intended to ensure the competence of technicians in several service areas.

Before hiring a Tampa Bay area plumber, we suggest you verify their State certification by visiting the State of Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation website.  There you can enter an individual or business name to verify their credentials.

All Midway Services technicians are employees and vetted through national criminal background checks and drug testing.  When you schedule a Midway service call, you will know when your technician is due to arrive.  He will be dressed in a Midway uniform and will have a Midway ID badge.  

You can rest assured that when you deal with Midway Services, you are dealing with highly trained professionals whose only goal is to solve your plumbing problems so you can get on with your lives.

We invite you to check Midway Services professional licenses.
