Plumbers, Electricians Still Working During Stay-at-Home Order
What happens if you have a plumbing or electrical emergency during the governor’s stay-at-home order? Good news. Those services are still considered essential.
“We’re doing our best to provide services to anyone who still needs them,” said Andy LeVahn with LeVahn Brothers Pumbing and Hardware in Maple Grove. “Plumbing services are still considered essential. With everybody buying as much toilet paper as they have it’s got to go down somewhere right? We do our best to try and service anybody that’s got a need. Whether that be a faucet that is leaking or a toilet or that kind of thing.”
The plumbers at LeVahn Brothers are taking some additional measures when entering homes. They wear gloves and masks.
“And they’re disinfecting after everything. Their trucks tools, so yeah,” said Levahn.
LeVahn says the company is still trying to maintain business as usual.
“We’re still getting a lot of emergency calls because that’s the nature of plumbing. Anything from water heaters to replacing faucets we’re still doing,” said Levahn.
What happens if you have an electrical problem?
“If you have an electrical emergency in your house that’s something that we definitely can come and help with. That’s our specialty. If you have an outlet that’s out, or a room that’s doesn’t have power, that’s something that we have specialized in for our whole time at being in business,” said Dan Smith, marketing director at Randy’s Electric in Brooklyn Park.
“That’s something that we’re still doing. We are considered an essential business. And so we are still operating fully. Obviously we’re taking some precautions, but we’re definitely operating and wanting to help all the customers we can.”
