About Faucet Repair & Installation in Bukavu

Constructing the new bathroom or perhaps renovating the kitchen. Or it’s a new bathtub or kitchen sink coming in and using the old faucet will usually not be the right choice because it can ruin the overall new look. Whatever the circumstances are, it is likely that some faucet replacement, installation services are going to be required at some point but later when faucets are qualitatively installed then the help of faucet repair services will not be needed for quite some time after. Knowing where and when the professional faucet replacement, installation, and repair services may be required might not be apparent to the untrained eye.

Therefore, this article hopes to serve as the short customer’s guide. It will offer guidance as to the points to consider when getting the qualified pros to help. It will also discuss the reasons why faucet replacement and faucet repair services may be needed.

THE FAUCET INSTALLATION PROCESS

Faucet installation services are what the customer is likely to require at first – usually if they are having a new bathroom or kitchen installed. This section will deal with the generic faucet installation process, based on researching some companies.

Of course, the exact nature of how the installers conduct their business will vary from company to company. That’s why the list detailed below is just a general idea of what a client should expect. The customer should also expect some overlaps between faucet installation and faucet replacement services.

  • If the faucet installation company is also installing the new sink, the bathroom or kitchen suite, they will start by removing the pre-existing sink unit. If only the faucet installation is being carried out by a separate firm, the client should ensure there is excellent communication between companies. Otherwise one’s interferes with the other’s progress will only hinder production. It will vary from company to company whether they dispose of the old sink (see later in the article). That applies to the faucet replacement services, too,
  • Faucet installation professionals should unpack and inspect the new product. Customers will be advised to let the installer do this since it will provide an extra layer of security if the product is faulty on arrival. If left untouched until the professionals inspect it, they should be able to arrange a free replacement if the product is defective without as much paperwork or proof,
  • Unless the kitchen or bathroom is being newly installed, in which case new plumbing work is likely, the faucet installation company should be able to plumb in the new faucet(s) to the pre-existing pipework they will connect and secure them to the sink or bathtub unit(s) already there,
  • After faucets are in place, connected and secured, the faucet installation, faucet replacement or faucet repair services provider will test the newly-installed fixtures. As with the initial inspection, this check will ensure that no damage has been done during faucet installation, and the product is in excellent working condition. A certificate usually will be issued to the customer after that, assuming everything is satisfactory.

FAUCET REPLACEMENT AND FAUCET REPAIR SERVICES

Of course, it will seem clear to the client when their faucet needs to be repaired or replaced. In this age of DIY and working to one’s convenience, customers will be tempted into the mindset that they can fix faucet themselves.

Naturally, if there’s a qualified plumber in the household, then dispensing with hiring professional faucet replacement and faucet repair services will be a wise and economical option. However, untrained customers should not try to fix any plumbing work themselves, since doing a job incorrectly will worsen the problem.

Also, leaks and drips should not be ignored, as they could be the tell-tale signs of a much more major underlying issues. Most commonly, it is a sign that the faucet is simply broken and will require replacement or repair. Leaving the dripping or leaking faucet without the attention of faucet replacement or faucet repair service plumber, will not only cost the customer a lot of money for water wastage. It could eventually cause the faucet to break entirely after that water may spray uncontrollably.

Faucet replacement and faucet repair services will also be required when a faucet is clogged up. Limescale residue from hard water is the most common cause of this. Using over-the-counter remedies to counteract this is all very well, but it is only a short-term solution and will become ineffective over time. The best thing is to consult with faucet repair services as soon as the issue arises.

A CHECKLIST FOR HIRING FAUCET REPLACEMENT, INSTALLATION AND REPAIR SERVICES

Looking for faucet replacement, installation and repair services should be treated very much the same as buying something in a store. That is, a lot of attention should be paid for the particulars of the company so that they fit the customer’s exact specifications and requirements. Research should go into finding the right faucet replacement, installation, and repair services to carry out the task in question.

Because there is often so much to think about and faucet installation and faucet replacement services are only just a small piece of a bathroom or kitchen installation puzzle, we have provided a list of points to consider before deciding which faucet replacement, installation and repair services (as required) to choose for the job.

  • Make sure the faucet replacement, installation and repairs services provider deals with the type of job you need. It may sound silly, but some companies only work in bathrooms, others solely in kitchens and so on. It depends entirely on whether the firm is an all-purpose plumbing company or if they conduct business specifically in installations of kitchens or bathrooms.

As such, there’s a sub-list below of different kinds of faucets and components thereof, any number of which a faucet replacement, installation and repairs services provider may deal in:

  • Faucets for kitchen sinks,
  • Faucets for bathroom sinks, bathtubs and showers – companies who work with shower faucet installation and shower faucet replacement services also may install and replace showerheads,
  • Faucets for utility rooms,
  • Faucets for outdoor use (e.g., gardens),
  • Some customers may not be too bothered by this element, but it’s best to ask or check the company’s site to see if the new fixtures get delivered on the same day as the faucet installation or faucet replacement. Some companies do not provide delivery and faucet installation, replacement services in one visit,
  • As mentioned above, if faucet installation, replacement services required, it is best to check whether the replacement service provider will dispose of or recycle the old faucet fixtures. Many faucet replacement companies will get rid of the old plumbing fixtures, but the customer must ask whether there are any extra fees for the disposal services,
  • As with any company, carrying out faucet replacement, installation, and repair services according to what is convenient for the client is a basic professional courtesy. Not to mention providing a better customer experience. Many companies don’t work on weekends and have a strict opening and closing hours. That of course, will be particularly inconvenient for customers who are full-time workers and won’t be available to oversee faucet replacement, installation or repair services on a weekday. Therefore, it is best practice would be to inquire with the company about their business hours on weekends. Customers should be aware of potential surcharges for weekend work,
  • Scams exist in every branch of business, even in faucet replacement, installation, and repair services. Asking for proof of certification or accreditation from a professional authority helps root out legitimate professionals. The way to find this information is to look at the company’s website or other places. The real pros will have the fact they are accredited usually stamped on any virtual page where they are appearing.
