Colorado Springs Plumbers Help Customers Handle Plumbing Issues During Pandemic

Colorado based Talmich Plumbing and Heating handles Colorado Springs residents plumbing problems, and showcases social distancing and hygiene procedures in these most uncertain of times.

Colorado Springs, United States - September 24, 2020 /PressCable/ —

Talmich Plumbing and Heating, a Colorado Springs-based water heater repair, plumbing services, boiler repair and drain cleaning company with more than 30 years of experience in all manner of plumbing repairs, is helping customers handle plumbing and other emergencies during the COVID-19 pandemic, showcasing social distancing and hygiene procedures in these most uncertain of times.

According to these plumbers in Colorado Springs, this is not the time to remodel one’s house – it’s about “essential services” that people need to have to be able to survive. However, the situation has become more complex when the issue of a broken water heater or flooded basement come into play, and Talmich has been helping customers navigate interactions that may require technicians visit their homes to address such concerns.

“Routines have been upended as the world reels from the coronavirus pandemic, with gatherings being cancelled, businesses being shuttered and people encouraged to stay home as much as possible,” says Tom and Erik Talmich, the father-and-son duo who own Talmich Plumbing and Heating. “It’s a question many homeowners have asked us over the past few weeks: ‘Should regular plumber appointments be kept or cancelled?’

“The key, as we see it, is changing behavior for the short-term so risk to ourselves and other people are limited; in so doing, our company is adhering to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, keeping lines of communication with customers open and implementing social distancing and hygiene procedures such as proper handwashing techniques and using alcohol-based hand sanitizer when it comes to our technicians. We also instruct employees to stay home if they are experiencing any symptoms that may be COVID-related.”

Talmich representatives like Tom and Erik go on to report that while they don’t typically mind when customers watch their technicians work, they have been asking that they remain at least six feet away – the minimum distance recommended by the CDC. Technicians have been washing their hands, using sanitizing wipes and wearing masks as much as possible during this time.

“If any work can be done outside, such as one of our techs assembling a pipe, this is preferred, as they should really only be coming into a home for the minimum amount of time needed to do the job,” adds Erik Talmich.

To make it easier to avoid transmission by touching shared surfaces, Talmich Plumbing and Heating has also been advising homeowners clear a path to the workspace ahead of time and to leave all doors open so workers don’t have to touch doorknobs or other surfaces. What’s more, customers are being told to identify points they don’t want touched and covering them, with Talmich associates even going so far as to suggest wrapping banisters in wrapping paper and then tearing it off when technicians leave; this will, according to Talmich reps, provide the homeowner peace of mind when wondering if he or she wiped down every surface the worker may have touched.

Both Tom and Erik Talmich say leaving the house while repairs take place is the best way of creating distance.

Talmich Plumbing and Heating, also specializing in water heater installation and water heater replacement, is located at 9150 Bellcove Circle and can be reached by calling (719) 822-0448. For more information visit their above referenced website.

PORTLAND, Maine — An aquarium and an engineering firm in Massachusetts are partnering on a project to better protect whales by monitoring them from space. New England Aquarium of Boston and Draper of Cambridge say whale conservation needs new, higher-tech solutions to protect whales from extinction.

US heads to court to build Trump border wall in Texas

Oct 29, 2020

HOUSTON — Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal, and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing. And much of the land along the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border in Texas, is privately held and environmentally sensitive. Almost no land has been taken so far. But Department of Justice lawyers have filed three lawsuits this month seeking to take...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Oct 29, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs.

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Oct 29, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
