If you suddenly find yourself dealing with a plumbing emergency, here are some steps that you can take to minimize the damage:
- Contact our office immediately: Sometimes a plumbing issue might seem minor and you’re inclined to let them wait until a time that is more convenient before calling for service. However, these minor problems are sometimes even more damaging than the major obvious ones because they progressively escalate to something more severe. Don’t hesitate to contact us no matter how small or large your plumbing issue seems to be.
- Turn off the main water source: There is a valve that you can shut off to stop the flow of water to all of the fixtures inside of your house. This is an important valve to know about, especially if your home is being flooding due to a broken pipe or a leaking faucet. If you don’t shut off the main water source, the water will continue to flood your home causing significant damage to your flooring and belongings. Make sure that all of the member of your family know where the main water shut off valve is in case you are not home when a plumbing emergency strikes they can turn the water off.
- Turn off the water supply to the affected fixture: The individual fixtures in your home also have their own water shut off valves. Sometimes the plumbing issue is something that can be contained to just one fixture and access to water elsewhere in the home won’t cause any additional damage. In this case, it is appropriate to only turn off the water to the one fixture that is malfunctioning.
