Crown Heights Emergency Plumbing
Plumbing emergencies are potentially costly issues that may cause extensive damage to your home. Getting these problems fixed as quickly as possible is often the difference between a salvageable home and incredible repair costs.
What Constitutes as a Plumbing Emergency?
Simple problems like a clogged toilet can often wait until morning for a fix, but a backed-up sewer line is a lot more serious and might need immediate attention. Keeping a septic system in good shape is essential for preventing backups, but sometimes tree limbs or animals can cause havoc with the sewer lines. You might need an emergency plumber to help with a sewer back-up emergency. Broken water pipes also tend to require emergency plumbing services, and it’s essential to get those pipes serviced as quickly as possible to reduce the damage caused by water flooding into the walls or through the ceilings. Another potential plumbing emergency may involve the water heater. Water heaters are often forgotten by homeowners because they’re hidden in a basement somewhere, out of sight. An older water heater may fail and become a fire hazard, so it’s important to have a professional take a look at the machine to avoid potential injury.

How Can I Prevent Emergencies?
One of the most common plumbing emergencies is a faulty washing machine that floods the laundry room. The cause of these floods tends to be a weakening of the rubber hoses that handle the machine’s water. Preventing an emergency starts with regular maintenance of the washing machine. If you have an older machine, get it serviced regularly to reduce your risk of a plumbing emergency.
Plumbers suggest avoiding liquid drain cleaners because they’re too harsh for the average set of pipes. If you have a minor clog, it’s best to handle it with a plunger. If your clog is major, you should call the plumber instead of putting harsh, corrosive chemicals into the pipes. Fixing a clog is a lot less expensive than having to replace all the pipes in your home.
