As the COVID-19 Coronavirus has spread across the country, people are practicing social distancing by self-isolating at their homes. However, while staying at home is a great effort, most are still unsure if it is okay to let other individuals into your home. Our professional plumbers at Cross Town know that when it comes to plumbing emergencies, the DIY method just isn’t the right method. Fortunately, plumbing is considered an essential service, even during times of a pandemic. The White House has deemed individual workers as “essential,” so you can still get the home services you need. Keep reading to learn why plumbing is considered an essential service
Plumbers Deemed Critical Workers
According to a decision from the Cyber and Infrastructure Security Agency (a branch of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security,) plumbers are considered part of America’s “essential critical infrastructure workforce.” Under the CISA’s ruling, medical professionals, law enforcement, and other workers whose job is to preserve public health and safety will be allowed to continue operating during the Coronavirus pandemic. A memo released by the government administration states that this includes “workers such as plumbers, electricians, exterminators, and other service providers who provide services that are necessary to maintaining the safety, sanitation, and essential operation of residences.”
Let us help you stay safe
Exposure to mold can lead to many health problems such as wheezing, sore throat, and asthma. While COVID-19 is still roaming the air you should try and minimize these symptoms as far as possible. In order to do this, you need to keep your humidity around 30%-50% particularly in areas like the kitchen and washrooms. We supply a range of dehumidifier and aircon to help reduce moisture in indoor air. An air conditioner especially reduces indoor pollen count which can benefit occupants suffering from allergies. As always, Crosstown Plumbing is here to help you create a healthy home.
