Call immediately for Emergency Plumbing Services
A properly functioning plumbing system is easy to take for granted; we expect our faucets to always provide fresh water and for our drains to take away the water we don’t need. Yet plumbing issues are very common, and it’s not always easy to know which situations require the help of emergency plumbing services and which ones don’t. Below are five problems that can occur with your home’s plumbing system that can’t wait until morning.
Blocked Drains and Toilets
Clogged toilets and drains are the most common types of plumbing emergencies. If a blockage can’t be easily dislodged using a plunger, you may need the help of emergency plumbing services to prevent major damage to your home’s pipes.
Leaky taps are often the result of damaged seals, scale build-up, or general wear and tear. Dripping faucets not only raise your utility bills, they can also cause significant damage to surrounding areas.
Pipes that freeze during winter can restrict water flow. Frozen pipes can also expand and eventually burst, causing significant water damage to your home. If you have frozen pipes, you should contact an emergency plumbing repair service to have your pipes thawed.
Noisy Water Heater
A noisy water heater may be filled with excessive sediment. A professional plumber can assess the problem and ensure your water heater performs optimally.
Sewage backup can cause not only foul odours, but also harmful bacteria, to enter your home. An emergency plumbing service can perform the sewage clean-up work for you, including wiping up waste, cleaning carpets and deodorizing carpets, and flooring restoration if needed.
While there are many more plumbing issues that can be considered emergencies, the above situations are the most common ones. If you experience any of these issues with your home’s plumbing system, you contact the certified plumbing experts John the Plumber immediately.
