Carlisle, Ohio- April 9, 2020- Plumbing companies are used to keeping their plumbers safe from infectious diseases. Dealing with things like toilets and sewer lines, there has to be a level of sanitation. With the outbreak of the Coronavirus, JMK Plumbing is taking even more precautions to keep their team and customers safe.
Since the news broke of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Carlisle plumbing company has been suiting up and doing their part in preventing transmissions. They are proactive, and that starts with screening their employees and their customers for symptoms of the illness. This will include talking to customers on the phone to learn about possible interactions or infection.
Employees that have been in contact with someone confirmed positive would need to wait to return to work for at least seven days. Those that have a cough in combination with a fever won’t be permitted to make house calls and will need to stay home until the isolation period is completed.
JMK Plumbing, LLC, understands that plumbing problems seldom happen during regular business hours. They have been experiencing increased calls due to residential customers using their plumbing more heavily. The plumbing company has received more calls ranging from leaks to stubborn clogs.

Our focus during the COVID-19 outbreak is making sure our team and our customers are kept safe. We will be implementing mandatory PPE and screen all employees to minimize any exposure or risk.”
