No one wants to deal with a flooded basement, bathroom, kitchen or business. Still the fact remains that unexpected plumbing emergencies happen all the time. From burst pipes to broken sewer lines, flooding can leave you in a real mess and literally "under water". Dealing with flooding urgently and efficiently can greatly help reduce the damage that flooding may cause. Here are a few tips on how to deal with emergency plumbing problems:
STOP THE WATER SOURCE: If it is possible and safe, turn off the water source. This will help minimize the flooding and damage you incur. Turning off a local supply valve or the main water supply may help you tremendously.
FIND A RELIABLE EMERGENCY PLUMBER: This is probably not a do it yourself moment. When serious flooding wreaks havoc on your home or business, hiring a reputable professional can save you time and money in the long run. They can offer quick water removal and water damage repairs. You also want to be sure the true underlying cause of your flooding is immediately addressed.
SALVAGE YOUR PROPERTY: If water is rising, try to move your valuables to higher ground on your property. Mitigating your loss is very important. But only do this if it is completely safe to do so.
Hopefully these tips will help you in the face of a plumbing emergency. Be sure to immediately contact your insurance company as well.
