Not every plumbing issue is considered to be emergency plumbing. There are some problems that you can fix or that can wait, by dealing with it yourself: however, there are many that occur without any warning which can tend to cause damage, inconvenience, or even stop you from carrying out everyday tasks. When you encounter a serious plumbing problem, the tendency would be to do a DIY repair, if you know what to do or how to do it correctly. However, there are issues that should be brought to the attention of a 24/7 plumbing company as soon as possible.
Emergency plumbing consists of various situations that are not considered regular, because they are more severe and sometimes put the health of the occupants at risk. Here are some examples of issues that require an emergency plumbing inspection and repair:
Sewer system back up
This problem is very inconvenient, besides being messy and getting it repaired, it can also be costly. When you experience multiple drain clogs, bad sewage odour, gurgling toilet or a puddle of water around the floor drain, it’s considered emergency plumbing.
Flooding should be dealt with immediately, by calling an emergency plumbing company. If you are in Keysborough or surrounding areas, Alderbrook Plumbing offers 24/7 emergency plumbing services. This means that you can call them at any time, and they will arrange a site visit. First, they will check the water heater, sink or toilet or a backed-up sewer, then discuss the problem with you and with your approval proceed with the repairs.
Clogged sinks become emergency plumbing once the blockage has become worse and the water stops completely. At that point, it’s time to reach out to a professional emergency plumbing technician, who will fix the issue for you. Remember, this is not an issue to be handled on your own, as it may lead to bigger issues that cause even bigger problems and more time to rectify the problem.
No Hot Water
When your hot water system breaks down and you can’t get any hot water for every day household functions like showers, washing and toilets not running. Then it’s time to call an emergency plumber, to check the water supply and appliances.
A toilet that is clogged or making unusual noises or doesn’t easily flush requires the immediate attention of a plumbing expert. When the problem is not attended to, right away, it may cause structural damage or sewage backups, which can be problematic.
Unless you are a plumber yourself, you should refrain from dealing, with leaks at home. The issue should only be addressed, by emergency plumbing technicians. You wouldn’t want the leaks to lead to mold, mildew and water damage that can result in costly repairs and present health hazards to the residents.
