What Constitutes A Plumbing Emergency?

emergency plumbing raleigh, emergency plumbing disaster raleighSometimes emergencies take a moment of calm in which to formulate a plan. Once you can concentrate, you can figure out the steps to fix the problem. Many plumbing problems are quick fixes with no additional equipment. However, if there is a risk of flooding that could cause significant damage to structures, you need to call for help. In general, consider making that call, even after-hours, if:

You Are Without Water 

Not having access to running water not only affects cooking and cleaning; but cutting off the water system can also cause further problems. Loss of pressure in a drinking water distribution system may allow bacteria to flow back into the home. Backsiphonage is a condition resulting from low or no pressure and carries a high potential for fecal contamination.

Sewer Backups

If you’ve ever had a sewer line backup, you know this is the very definition of a plumbing emergency. When a sewer line backs up, sewage sits at its back up point, creating a health hazard. Backed up sewage can cause problems to the physical structure of the home, as well.

Overflowing Toilet

An overflowing toilet is another plumbing problem that no homeowner wants to deal with– call for help. The first step to fixing it is to shut off the water to the toilet. If you aren’t sure what to do next or you can’t stop your toilet from overflowing, it’s time to call Proven Professional Construction Service.

Even if you suspect the problem may simply be too much toilet paper, it’s still a good idea to have a plumber come out and assess the situation. You may think you can just shut off the water and wait for normal business hours, but if you’ve misdiagnosed the issue and things take a turn, you may find yourself in a worse situation.

Burst Pipes

Unlike these other issues, the water flowing from the pipe is clean and most likely not a health risk. However, repairing a burst pipe is a significant project and requires the expertise of a professional emergency plumber. Once they arrive, they can inspect the scene and quickly fix the problem.

A benefit of Proven PCS is that when a plumbing mishap has resulted in water damage to your property, they will do it all: address the source of the water damage, clean up the mess, and dry your property.
