It isn’t until someone tries to tackle a plumbing job themselves, that they realise what a highly skilled job plumbing is. Over the years the technology has become increasingly advanced, and we have to keep up to date with all aspects of the trade.

At IQ Plumbing Services we employ some of the best emergency plumbers in London. All are experienced in many different areas, and are fully qualified to City and Guilds level and beyond.

As a minimum qualification, a plumber in London must hold the City and Guilds NVQ level 2 certificate or equivalent. This gives students the knowledge, skills and certifications they need to work competently on modern domestic plumbing systems.
