Home » Protect Your Home: Beware of These 3 Plumbing Emergencies
As a homeowner, you have so many important aspects that you need to constantly be focusing on and aware of. Some household issues are minor and can be handled the following week, but some are downright emergencies and need to be addressed right away — especially anything to do with your home’s plumbing.
Plumbing issues can cause horrible damage around your home and lead to some even more costly problems. Even something as small as a minor leak in a faucet can lead to serious plumbing emergencies. In fact, a single leaking faucet can waste up to 100 gallons of water a day, which can be extremely expensive.
Here are some of the most damaging and expensive plumbing problems — if you notice any of these issues in your home, be sure to contact professional 24-hour emergency plumbing services:
Frozen or busted pipes — If your home has pipes that are above the ground or at surface level, the water in those pipes can freeze and burst. The best way to prevent these damaging piping issues from happening is to cover all above ground popes with towels when the temperature drops too severely.
Overflowing toilet — An overflowing toilet is one of the most common and, unfortunately, terrible plumbing emergencies. Typically, clogged toilets can be fixed with a plunger, but as soon as the plunger approach doesn’t work, that’s when the damage can occur. Clogged toilets can quickly overflow after flushing and lead to unsanitary conditions across your bathroom and the rest of the home. In order to prevent these issues from happening, be sure to never flush any item down your toilet other than toilet paper. Contact 24-hour emergency plumbing services if any overflowing has occurred.
Water heater leaks — Since your hot water supply is extremely important, you need to make sure that your water heater is functioning properly at all times. A small leak can end up costing you a fortune, but not just on water bills, on your energy expenses, as well. Be sure to monitor every HVAC system throughout your home and contact plumbing professionals immediately if you notice something is wrong.
