When you think of the word emergency, your mind probably jumps to paramedic, or police officer, or a firefighter, but emergencies come in all shapes and sizes and can cost you a small fortune if not addressed quickly. Plumbing emergencies can be especially harmful to your bank balance for every hour that passes, which is why having a reliable emergency plumber in your phone book is an advisable idea.
Your leaking pipes don’t sleep, so why should your plumber?
A clogged pipe or leaking tap can strike at any time during the day or night. This often inconvenient and aggravating problem can quickly turn into a disaster if the water won’t turn off or a leaking pipe is slowly flooding your home. The longer you wait, the more of your home’s structural integrity could be put at risk. If you’re wondering how much it costs to repair the water damaged foundations of your home, it’s a lot. This is why many plumbers offer an around the clock service so they can be there when an emergency arises.
What would happen if I waited until the next day to call a plumber?
Depending on the severity of your leak, you could be looking at a simple flooded carpet, or a potentially much more serious problem. If the leak is not stopped quickly, then you put your entire home at risk of water damage. Any furniture nearby at the time can fall victim, and once timber becomes water logged, this can often mean replacing your tables, cabinets and sofas all together. Don’t risk leaving a leak unattended over night as the problem may intensify, suddenly leaving you ankle deep in water and wondering why you didn’t just call an emergency plumber.
What is an emergency plumber equipped to handle?
Everything a regular plumber can offer. Repairs, replacements, installation and everything else under the sun. With their mobile workshops and extensive industry experience, they are highly trained professionals who understand how to identify a problem quickly. This means they will be able to find the source of your leak, and fix it quickly before it has a change to spread any further.
