Top 3 Reasons to Call Our Emergency Plumbers:
- Clogged/Backed-Up Drains: Every homeowner has dealt with clogged drains at some point, and oftentimes, minor clogs don’t seem like that big of an issue. But if you are dealing with an intense clog that just won’t go away, persistent clogs around your property, or back-ups that are actually spilling out of your drains, you need to call a plumber right away. A badly clogged drain can indicate that you have a deeper problem in your sewer or drain lines, and may result in leaking or even burst pipes if left unattended. While you may be tempted to try to get rid of a nasty clog with liquid drain cleaners, the chemicals in these products are often nastier than the clog itself, and tend to be ineffective, either only eating part way through the obstruction or just sitting on top of the clog, waiting for a back-up to occur.
- Overflowing Toilets/Sewer Systems: Almost everyone has had a toilet overflow on them before, but that doesn’t make this problem any more welcome. If you can’t take care of the problem with a plunger, make sure to call a plumber right away, as you could end up with water damage seeping out you’re your bathroom and into your floor. This goes ditto if your sewer system has sprung a leak. The presence of wastewater will not only lead to property damage, but poses a serious health hazard to your property, so watch out for signs of a sewage spill like clogged drains, nasty smells, and lush, green spots around your yard.
- Malfunctioning Water Heaters: Waking up to a cold shower is annoying, but it isn’t the worst thing in the world either. However, if your water heater starts to act up in other ways, it is imperative that you call a plumber ASAP. In addition to fluctuating temperatures and water bills, look out for strange banging noises, foul smells, and visible leaks coming from your water heater. The presence of these issues may indicate that your system just needs to be flushed out, which is no big deal. However, you wouldn’t want to wait to call for water heater service, and end up with a flooded basement, or water that is so hot it ends up scalding you.
