Whether you have too much water flowing into your home or no water coming in, you may have a plumbing issue on your hands. In both cases, you may need to get them fixed immediately. North York Plumbers have been providing emergency plumbing services to North York and Toronto for years. Our customer service agents are always standing by to make sure that no matter what day of the week a problem arises we can head to help you in a timely manner. Like we said there are plenty of situations that can become a plumbing emergency. We are going to give you a few tips on what to do in the case of a plumbing emergency to make sure that you can help us help you when we actually arrive, and above all how you can stay safe.
Call in Quickly
When you have a real plumbing emergency time may not be on your side. We don’t want you to panic, but especially in situations where you have a lot of water flowing into your home a lot of your home appliances and furniture could be at risk of getting ruined if you don’t call in fast. Also, this can give our team more options on how to fix the issue when they arrive. A small leak repair can turn into a full pipeline replacement if you allow the crack to continue to grow. This will ultimately cost more money to repair.
Be Proactive But Cautious
Again if you see that a lot of water is flowing into your home and you know what lever you have to pull up to stop the water flow from coming into your house you should definitely cut the flow of water as soon as you can. This can help minimize the damage done to other areas of your home that may not be too water friendly. Trying to attack the leaking head on though, may not be such a good idea. The last thing we want you to do is to slip and fall trying to get the problem fixed. We offer Scheduled drain cleaning which can help you avoid many problems in the future.
Stay Calm And Give Us As Many Details As Possible
We know that most emergency plumbing situations can come as a huge surprise. Otherwise, they wouldn’t really be emergency situations, to begin with obviously. If you can remain calm though, and provide our customer service representatives with as many details as you can with regards to your emergency we will be able to come better prepared to take it on.
Don’t Underestimate The Situation
Most of the times when we get called in late to fix a plumbing emergency and things have already gotten out of hand it’s because people downplayed their issue. We know that sometimes when you wake up and you see water is not flowing properly you typically don’t have time to worry too much since you have to get to work. If you are experiencing a lack of water flow try to eliminate the obvious issues. If there seems to be a problem that doesn’t involve your local water supply chances are the issue is coming from within your home.
