Some company’s may have a policy where their plumbers don’t have to clean up after themselves. If they don’t apologize and offer some sort of reimbursement, then take your complaints to yelp or some other place you can review the company. The least you could do is help other individuals make a better decision about whom they’ll hire to fix their plumbing issues. If enough people make complaints, then the company will make a change.
