What is a Plumbing Emergency? Services and Prevention
Because most plumbing emergencies involve water, homeowners must educate themselves. Understanding the location of the main water valve is very important. During an emergency, shutting off the valve is a requirement. Any delays will increase the amount of water damage. Homeowners should also know the locations of valves for other water appliances and fixtures. For example, there are valves under sinks and toilets. These valves should be used during emergencies that involve a specific appliance or fixture. During a pipe leak, the main shut off valve should be used.
Our technicians provide pipe repair services during an emergency that involves a leak. A proper inspection is also offered. During a pipe leak, the main shut off valve is used, so various appliances will require an inspection, such as the water heater. The unit must be shut off at the gas supply and at the circuit breaker to reduce overheating. To prevent major emergencies that involve leaks, professional maintenance is needed often.
During the winter, homeowners use our pipe maintenance services. Pipes that are located in freezing climates will require insulation. Without the proper insulation, a pipe can burst when temperatures are too low. This is possible because the water freezes, and this causes the pipe to burst. When a pipe bursts, our services should be considered. Our technicians use advanced procedures to replace or repair the pipes. If the pipes freeze, our technicians will thaw them using heating equipment.
Clogs are other common plumbing emergency, but our technicians also handle clogs efficiently. Although plungers solve most clog problems, advanced plumbing tools are needed for major clogs. Plumbers understand how to use professional tools. Homeowners should not try to use advanced equipment because they may damage the appliances or fixtures. To prevent drain clogs, consider using our drain cleaning service often.
Plumbing emergencies that involve toilet clogs can be prevented by using simple procedures. For example, objects should not be placed over the toilet. If an object drops in the toilet and is flushed by accident, major issues will cause. Also, do not let kids drop items in the toilet. When items will build up in the waste pipe, a major clog will occur. During an emergency toilet clog, our technicians will remove the object that causes the clog efficiently.
