Growing demand for plumbing, sewer and drain services among home buyers and sellers

PANDEMIC-DRIVEN-HOUSING-BOOM-HEIGHTENS-NEED-FOR-Z-PLUMBERZ-SERVICESANN ARBOR, Mich. (August 16, 2021)Z PLUMBERZ, a full-service and fast-growing residential and commercial plumbing franchise, has seen a significant increase of plumbing, sewer and drain repair requests from home buyers and sellers in 2021.

As more people look to buy or sell homes amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, and others look to improve their properties with plans to stay long-term, Z PLUMBERZ franchisees are meeting higher customer demand for maintenance and preventative safeguarding of plumbing systems. Additionally, with summer and early fall being the busiest moving season, the company has recently completed hundreds of plumbing services quickly and efficiently, helping prepare homes to be move-in ready.

“Proper plumbing maintenance is a crucial but often forgotten service for residential properties,” said Matt O’Rourke, President of Z PLUMBERZ. “With so much activity in the real estate market and interest in home improvement, our franchisees have been busier than ever providing high-quality services to repair and preserve leaky pipes, water traps, faucets, toilets, showers and more.”

If you’re looking to sell your home or are in the market to buy, Z PLUMBERZ has several tips on what to consider before making a move:
Sellers should fix leaky pipes and water spots before listing, as these problems will not go away on their own and will likely be a contingent request from potential buyers.
Buyers should test faucets, sinks and toilets when looking at homes to get a better understanding of the water pressure and draining system.
• Both buyers and sellers should ensure that the water heater is in good condition. Heaters that are more than ten years old or have visible rust, corrosion and damage should be replaced.

“In its second year within the BELFOR Franchise Group network, our customers have been incredibly impressed with Z PLUMBERZ’s one-stop-shop plumbing, sewer and drain services,” said Sheldon Yellen, CEO of BELFOR Franchise Group. “Alongside their high-quality customer service, Z PLUMBERZ franchisees will continue to provide peace of mind as a trusted local plumbing services partner for all parties in this incredibly busy housing market.”
