Have you ever come home to find your bathroom flooded? Have you woken up in the middle of the night to the dreaded sound of running water? What about going to show and finding there is no hot water?
It’s at times like these that you need a reputable company to assist with your plumbing emergency.
If you find you have a plumbing emergency and are not sure where to turn, there are some steps you can follow to ensure that the least amount of damage is incurred.
The first thing you will find is you feel panicked. This is completely understandable, but the best thing to do is try and keep a cool head. Don’t run for the computer or phone directory first, rather find your water switch off valve and turn the water off to the property to stop the rushing water.
Next get some towels or rags and dry up as much as the water as possible, reducing the amount of damage to walls and floors. In a plumbing emergency it’s easy to forget what order to tackle the problem in, so remember turn off water, dry up water and then remove furniture items which have least amount of damage to them, enabling them to dry out quickly.
It is at this point you phone the emergency plumber and get them to come out and look at the problem. Chances are if it is late at night or after hours you will need to answer a stream of questions.
This isn’t to add to your frustration, but rather for the plumber to get an accurate idea of the problem and determine if it is something they can fix right away or if it is something that will need to wait until morning, once they can source the parts they need.
