What Warrants a Plumbing Emergency?
It's important to understand that not all plumbing issues necessitate an immediate response. While some situations may be inconvenient, they can often wait until normal business hours or until a plumber is available to address them. However, there are other circumstances where time is of the essence and immediate action is required.
How can you determine the urgency if you're not a plumbing expert yourself? To help, we've compiled a list of the most common plumbing emergencies, along with explanations as to why they're so serious:
- Burst pipes: A burst pipe can cause severe water damage to your property if not addressed immediately. It can lead to flooding, structural damage, and potential mold growth.
- Severe clogs and blockages: A severely clogged drain or toilet can lead to overflows, causing water damage and potential health hazards due to unsanitary conditions.
- Sewer backups: If sewer water is coming back up into your home's drains, it's a serious health risk that needs immediate attention. Sewer water can contain bacteria and viruses that may cause illness.
- Gas leaks: A gas leak is a severe, life-threatening situation. If you smell gas, evacuate your property immediately and call a professional.
- Water heater issues: A malfunctioning water heater can mean no hot water, but it can also sometimes lead to dangerous pressure buildup in the system.
