When it comes to your home, you want to have a list of reliable people that can help when something goes wrong. This is especially so for your home’s plumbing. Emergencies happen and knowing who to call can be useful in an emergency situation.
1. Leaking Water Won’t Wait
Sometimes in the heat of the moment after a major leak, you may not have any idea where your water shut-off valve is. Sometimes water will not stop pouring out of faucets or pipes until that valve is turned in the “off” position.
Even if you find the valve and turn it off, now your home has no working water, and it is up to you to bring in a plumber that works well with leak detection and plumbing emergencies.
2. Pipe Problems Can Become an Issue
No matter the time of year, your pipes can easily turn on you. From a slight leak to an exploding burst, pipe problems need immediate care that an emergency plumber can offer. Although a gas leak is the most severe plumbing emergency, a burst pipe comes in at a strong second place.
Your pipe may not even need to burst to cause you to call for an emergency repair. In the winter, pipes can freeze up and water will need to be restored to your home. Relying on a trusted plumber can help ease a rough situation.
3. An Emergency Plumber Helps Prevent More Damage
Sometimes, even though the water has stopped flowing, not calling for an emergency repair can lead to more damage that can end up being a health hazard for your family.
In the example of a burst or leaking water heater, even a slow leak can create a moist environment that is a breeding ground for mold spores that can become nearly impossible to remove. It is important to understand that all actions in plumbing have a reaction that can be for better or worse. Take the better route and make sure you know who to call in order to prevent more damage.
4. Save Yourself Time
Sometimes you may be so overwhelmed with the plumbing issue at hand that you find yourself flustered and unable to figure out who to call. By doing your research ahead of time, forming an established relationship with a trusted plumber, and keeping their contact info on-hand, you will be able to save some crucial time during your emergency.
Having an established relationship not only gives you someone to call but lets you know for certain that you are calling someone out that will do the job right the first time.
