Plumbing is an essential part of your day-to-day life. When you hire a plumber to clean your drains, fix your water heater or install a water softener, you’d expect the assurance of a job well done. While reading reviews and considering the company’s years of experience can help, the number one thing to look for is a plumbing license.
Only six states — Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Pennsylvania and Wyoming — don’t assign plumbing licenses at the state level. Instead, they count on city and county governments to provide oversight and licensing.
