Emergencies always cause alarm but then again, it never solved anything to panic. Plumbing services are one that homeowners never think about until it happens and most likely at the worst time possible. There is always an amount of dread the moment you discover a leak somewhere in the house at any time of day leave alone in the middle of the night. Sometimes, it might be a small leak that you can tie with a rubber to wait until dawn but other times the situation can get so out of control you have to call in a professional plumber to contain it.
Therefore, what kind of situations call for emergency plumbing service, some of the signs you should be on the lookout for to indicate that you need a 24-7 plumbing service are burst pipes, broken hot water systems, drain smell or greasy smell, blocked shower drains and faucets that keep running without closing.
Calling in a plumber in the middle of the night will cost you so much more but of course, you will not let the furniture ruin from water just because of a few extra dollars. If your problem is like an overflowing toilet or something else just as bad, you will not let your house reek costing you cleaning services in the end just for the expense. It could also be a sewage leak and you might risk the structure of your home if you try anything, if you do not contain it, apart from bringing ruin to your floor as well as carpets or rugs it can bring mould and bacteria putting you and your family at health risk. So, then you have every right to have a profession plumber come and rectify the situation before it gets out of hand.
What to do
Once you come upon such a situation, assess it. Try to figure out if there is something, you can do to help it, if for instance you came to running water in the shower room, you can try to close the faucet or switch the water from the source supply, if all that fail you then you can reach for your phone and call an emergency plumber. If it happens to be a gas pipe and you can smell gas in the house then by all means that is an emergency and you should switch it off at the main valve then call in help.
How to know the exact emergency
When you call in an emergency plumber, you can check on some things, to be sure, of what they are coming to do so they can at least give you an estimate some things.
In case of no water- check if you paid the bill first, then the pressure tank gauge and the pump circuit breaker, if it trips after your reset then it needs to be checked by an expert.
In case of no heat- check your thermostat, it might be turned off, the burner switch and the oil tank, you might be out without realizing it.
In case of no hot water, check all the fixtures as well as the circuit breaker.
Leaking pipe- the best thing to do before the plumber gets there is to shut whatever goes through it from the main switch. Check how for the damages so you can describe it to the plumber. A leaking pipe could be more dangerous than you might think but the plumber you will contact will take care of the water extraction and mold remediation and restoration. A leaking pipe ought not to wait.
Clogged drain- first, try to identify the source of the clog by running water in all the taps in the house. In case all of the drain back up then the problem is at the soil pipe and you should get an expert plumber to fix it immediately. If it is the toilet then plunge it and if it happens to be one sink you can try to check underneath for a trap which you can easily pull out.
When you contact the emergency plumber be sure to be detailed about the problem and ask them if they charge for service call. Ask to speak to the plumber who will actually be assigned to you and try to get the best quote you can possibly get on the repairs that are to be done.
