The toilet is overflowing. A pipe is broken. A drain is backing up.
When any of these are occurring, an emergency plumbing repair service is needed. A professional plumber deals with situations that have the potential of turning into a problematic, financial or disastrous error if not dealt with immediately.
What is considered to be an emergency plumbing repair?
- A blocked or broken sewage pipe. It may start with a foul smell coming from the basement drainage system. Or it may be a leak in the yard. Either can lead to messy, costly problems if left untreated.
- A blocked drain. Whether in the bathroom sink or shower, or in the kitchen, both can limit your daily routines.
- A broken or leaking pipe. Water can cause unlimited amount of damage. The quicker its fixed, the easier and less costly the cleanup.
The busiest time for an emergency plumbing repair service is during the holidays when more people are in your home, and you’re using your drains and pipes more frequently. Take special precautions. Limit the amount of food and waste you send down the garbage disposal. Check pipes and faucets for leaks before company arrives.
While you may decide to try and fix some of your emergencies yourself, remember an emergency plumber deals with different types of problems every day. They spend years gaining knowledge and technical expertise in every area of your home, inside and out. They can easily fix in a short period of time what may take you hours or even days to locate and fix.
Ask about their licenses and experience. Ask for recommendations and referrals. Then trust them to do the job you’ve hired them to do. And help you get back to your normal routines quickly.
