Plumbing Scams are Prevalent.

Especially among our senior citizen population in Chicagoland, people will try to take advantage of an opportunity to prey on the uninformed.  It comes in many fashions…get rich schemes, retirement investments, IRS prank calls (have you gotten one of those?), etc.  Even plumbing scams are rampant…especially in the winter.

We want you to be aware of –

1.      Leading questions to determine if you live alone
2.      Telling you that your plumbing problems are worse than they really are

The Importance of Being Winterized.

Any homeowner will tell you the importance of keeping your plumbing working through the winter, but sometimes the elements have a mind of their own. Burst pipes, wet floors, and damaged walls are all possible in the winter months and are much more common during the cold winter freeze in Chicagoland.

Please remember to keep your faucets running with a slight drip.  Temperatures are usually at their coldest in the last half of January.  Make sure that your drains and gutters are free of ice and debris.  Do not allow an outdoor faucet or hose to remain unattended which may cause it to crack under the pressure of freezing water.

Most importantly, have a professional plumbing company double check your piping and plumbing system to be absolutely sure that it is ready for what is to come.  Your repiping professionals at Tom’s Plumbing Inc. is always the right answer.  Don’t wait for an emergency.  Schedule a check-up from Mike and his crew at Tom’s Plumbing Inc. serving the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago by calling (847) 697-6444.
