Mr. Rooter Celebrates National Hug a Plumber Day

WACO, Texas (April 22, 2015) – Every year, millions of homeowners require the expertise and hard work of an experienced plumber to fix disastrous situations in the home. For centuries, plumbers have protected the health of the nation through improved sanitation and quality of life.

“The importance of the job a plumber does, and of those who do the work is often overlooked or goes unnoticed,” Mr. Rooter Plumbing President, Mary Kennedy Thompson, stated. “National Hug a Plumber Day reminds us to thank those who work hard daily to protect our health and well being.”
