The impact of COVID-19 is wide-ranging within the building and construction industry with effects to be inevitably felt within the supply chain and safety of workers.

Many tradies have been hit by the pandemic, and it has changed the habits of a lot of industries. We know that you want to keep socially distanced as much as possible, preventing the spread of the disease, but at the same time, there are occasions when you need to call in help.

According to statistics, Australia has had more than 26000 cases of COVID-19 so far. During this time, hiring the right team of professionals trained in COVID-19 safe practices to keep your plumbing working is extremely important.


The Australian government has listed tradies as essential service providers, and this means that throughout the different stages of lockdown, you can have tradies enter your home. In Queensland, as we have very few Coronavirus cases, you can call in tradies to carry out any work you wish to have completed, and you are not just limited to emergency work. So if you have a specific problem which requires the assistance of an expert, you can currently call in a tradie to help.


If you have a problem with your water pipes, or with drainage problems, then you need to call in expert plumbers like the team at DCM Plumbing. They are allowed to help homeowners who cannot do DIY jobs, or where only a qualified professional may do the work.


Yes! However, there are some factors regarding whether you should call in a plumber to help you with your job. Firstly, if you feel unwell, or have been instructed to self-isolate, then you should try to delay the job as much as possible. Plumbing helps maintain sanitation and safety, which are essential for residents in Queensland.


When you call in a DCM Plumbing plumber, you should greet them at the door but try to remain at a safe distance to keep up with social distancing. Safety is our number one priority not just on how we conduct our work but also with the tools we use. Good workplace hygiene and cleaning practices are also critical. You can use electronic payment options rather than giving them cash to keep contact to a minimum. Our plumbers will sanitise their hands and equipment before and after completing your work. All of this will help to keep both you and them safe.
