We may have a great tradition of DIY here in the UK, but that doesn't mean you should take the amateur approach to plumbing at your domestic or commercial building.

Indeed, trying to perform all-important plumbing jobs yourself despite having no or zero qualifications or experience, or trusting someone else who also lacks the credentials to take on this type of work, could bring significant immediate and longer-term risks.

Here, then, are a few reasons to go very much 'professional' when you are comparing quotes and offers from Clapham plumbers or similar professionals elsewhere in London.

Professionals have the necessary depth and breadth of expertise

Even if you’re confident you know the cause of a particular plumbing issue at your home or business and how it can be fixed, do you really have a level of knowhow comparable to an actual professional?

The most professional Clapham plumbers are brilliant at not just pinpointing the root of a particular issue with a given plumbing system, but also devising the right solution, drawing on all areas of their experience and expertise.

This means they're likely to be able to come up with more effective and longer-lasting fixes than you could, even if your own attempt to resolve the problem doesn't imperil the integrity of your entire property's plumbing system.

Professionals have the specialised tools and equipment needed

With every DIY task – not just plumbing tasks – the use of the right tools, equipment and materials can make the difference between a long-lasting resolution of the problem and no resolution at all.

It can be expensive enough to have certain plumbing work done, without having to pay again to correct a botched attempt at a repair. So, why run that risk? It’s a professional plumber who you can depend on to have all of the necessary tools and equipment, rather than an amateur.

Professionals can respond swiftly, whenever you need them

While 'Dave down the road' may claim to be able to fix that blockage or repair your taps to a standard just as good as a professional, even if you're prepared to take the risk on him, is he likely to be available during those emergencies when you most urgently need plumbing work to be done?

It's a very different situation with our Clapham plumbers here at PGS Plumbers. When you call us, a member of our scheduling team will be able to review the exact location and status of each of our engineers, and assign a professional to you who will be able to turn up quickly.

Remember that the specialised, delicate and important nature of a plumber's work means this is the type of service where you really aren't advised to cut corners. Not just the effectiveness of any plumbing work, but also your safety could be in question if you don't use a professional – so don’t hesitate to call us now, on 0203 370 0066, to give yourself the greatest possible peace of mind.
