Trusted Plumbing and Heatingby Maddy Dullum on December 1, 2020
We are Trusted Plumbing & Heating, a plumbing and HVAC company located in the heart of Renton. As an essential business, we are thankful to have been able to stay open and operating during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to be able to help homeowners and small businesses. We provide plumbing, sewer and heating repairs, installations and services throughout King County.
Because of our essential business status, our team has been able to continue with our Renton plumbing business operations somewhat normally, unlike many other businesses that have had to adjust dramatically to the pandemic. As a family owned company, some of our employees realized as the 2020 school year was approaching that they might have to make some very tough decisions in regards to their kids' education.
A few of our employees brought up concerns that they wouldn't have any other options during the school year but to quit and hope they could stay afloat. However, we decided that it’s more important than ever to help our parent employees make sure their children can continue their school.
At our main office location in Renton, we’ve set up special spaces where employees can have their children continue online school, with their parents nearby and available to help if needed. We believe that meeting our team's needs is important to maintain a healthy work environment. "I can't expect my employees to do a good job with helping our customers, scheduling appointments, or doing quality plumbing work here in Renton if they're worried about paying the bills and how their kids are going to do school," says owner, Jim Cunningham.
