Keeping Our Customers Safe During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Keeping Our Customers & Employees Safe During Coronavirus

Thanks for considering our team at Spartan Plumbing to take care of your plumbing and HVAC needs. With the introduction of the coronavirus into our everyday lives, we would like to take a moment to elaborate on how we are dealing with it. The safety of our technicians and customers is our first priority, so you can feel confident calling our team for help. Plumbers are considered an essential business to help keep the community and public safe. The information below should answer many of your questions, although you can always contact our office for any additional information you may need.

What is Coronavirus?


Coronavirus is a disease that the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) warns can cause respiratory illness. It is spread from person to person and is highly contagious. If contracted, this disease can cause fever, nausea, headache, GI issues, coughing, and difficulty breathing. The severity of symptoms varies based on age and health, with elderly and immunocompromised populations being the most at risk.

How is it Being Spread?

When an individual who is infected with coronavirus coughs or sneezes, microscopic droplets in their saliva can contaminate the air and surfaces nearby. Any droplets on their hands can also transfer onto surfaces and spread to others. For this reason, healthcare experts recommend washing your hands frequently with soap and water. They also warn against touching your face, especially if you’ve been in a public place.

For individuals who know they are infected, it has been recommended that they be quarantined away from other people in an effort to avoid spreading the disease. To help further prevent the spread, most states and countries have now closed many businesses while urging households to stay home unless they work in “essential” industries.

Why is Social/Physical Distancing Important?

Experts recommend practicing distancing by staying at least 6-feet away from other individuals when you must go out in public places. This can help lessen the spread of the disease and minimize the number of people infected overall. It’s also important to avoid shaking hands, hugging, or otherwise touching others. Although extreme, doing this can save lives by minimizing the number of individuals who are impacted by this disease.

What are we Doing to Keep Our Customers and Employees Safe?

We are doing our part to keep the community safe during this crisis. Spartan Plumbing is taking precautions to help protect our customers and our team.
