Reasons to Call for Emergency Plumbing Services

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Calling a technician for plumbing repairs can be stressful. You may not detect a problem until it is too late and a leak or clog threatens to ruin your home. And if a plumbing issue occurs in the middle of the night, you may fear that there is no one available to help.

Thankfully, the friendly plumbers at Total Comfort Inc offer 24-hour emergency plumbing services for quick service at any time of the day or night. Of course, not all problems require immediate attention, and some can wait until the following morning when both you and your plumber can better prepare. However, the following problems should lead you to take advantage of emergency services quickly.

A Pipe Bursts

One of the most common issues that leads panicked homeowners to call for emergency service is a burst pipe. This is certainly a problem that requires immediate attention. Water floods into your yard, leading you with a major mess on your hands and a risk of flooding into certain parts of your home. Furthermore, you may not get any water flow into your home. And here in California, we try to conserve as much water as we can, which is another vital reason to call a plumber right away.

Water or Sewage Backs Up Into Your Home

Of course, if water or sewage backs up into your home, you’ll do anything to stop it. Calling for emergency services is undoubtedly justified in this case as your home and your health is at risk. When you notice strange smells, water spots, or pools of water in your home, be sure to act quickly to prevent the problem from worsening.

Your Property or Belongings Are at Risk

In general, you should call for emergency services anytime you feel your home is at risk. After all, water damage is a pain to repair, requiring costly renovations in which you replace major fixtures and features of your home. Besides, pooling water poses a health risk to asthma and allergy sufferers due to the potential of mold growth.
