We all know the saying, “when it rains, it pours.” Hopefully, that does not describe your current plumbing situation. Calling a plumber can cause some apprehension about the damage to your wallet. Sometimes, your best option is to call the pros. It is important to know when emergency plumbing services are absolutely necessary and make sure you are dealing with a company dedicated to getting your problem resolved quickly and correctly. Here are some reasons that often require emergency plumbing services:
- No Water. Water is essential in your home. When you have no water, that is something that needs to be remedied immediately.
- Burst Pipes. These are more common during the winter months when your pipes can freeze, causing them to burst. If this happens, emergency plumbing services are necessary to prevent major damage to your home. Be sure to shut off your water in the event of a burst pipe to limit the flooding.
- Clogged Sewer Line. There are sometimes odd items that end up down your drain. Flushing certain products can cause clogs in your main line (feminine products, paper towels, etc.). More than one drain clog, water pooling, or bubbling sounds from fixtures can be signs of clogging in your main sewer line. This can cause extensive damage when ignored.
- Broken Water Heater. Cold water is not necessarily cause for emergency plumbing services, but you should pay attention to your water heater. If you have a leak in the tank, it may give off dripping or bubbling sounds. Additionally, mineral deposits in the tank cause clanking sounds. A broken water heater can quickly become a much bigger issue if you’re not paying attention.
You can often avoid larger expenses by calling a plumber as soon as you notice any signs of a problem. However, if you find yourself in need of emergency plumbing services, Anytime Plumbing & Solutions can help you out.
