Like most of you, we have spent the past few weeks learning about the Corona Virus (COVID-19) and the impact it is having across the world. For our McMahon Plumbing and Heating family, this means taking a close look at the impact this virus is having on our communities and developing a plan to reduce health risks for everyone.
Through the past 68 years our family business was built on a foundation of caring – about our communities, our customers, our employees and our vendors. During an infectious disease outbreak, this means taking every precaution possible to keep others healthy and safe. With this objective in mind, we have implemented several procedures in our business to respond to and reduce the threat of COVID-19, and we continue to evaluate appropriate measures, relying on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), The World Health Organization (WHO) and State and Local Public Health Departments for guidance.
We know that home service problems occur even during illnesses and health concerns. Many of you have scheduled service or repair appointments, and many more will have unforeseen home service needs during the upcoming days and weeks. Please know that we are always here to help. We are committed to serving your household to the best of our ability and maintaining the lowest health risk possible while doing so. If you have any concerns, we will be happy to discuss solutions with you while we all support each other during this time.
