Plumbing systems are only as good as the people who designed and built them and sometimes plumbing emergencies happen. Home damage during these emergencies can be severe. Minimize personal loss by following these basic steps in a plumbing crisis before one of our plumbing experts arrives.

Immediately Unplug All Electrical Devices: Unplugging electrical appliances is an important step as it can avoid ruining those devices, shorting out your home’s power grid, and creating dangerous water-electrical situations. Only unplug electrical devices if they haven’t been touched by the water yet. Never unplug devices if they have been submerged or if there is chance they may have been submerged.

Turn Off Your Water Supply: If a pipe has burst, immediately find it’s valve and close it to minimize water damage. Turn off the main water supply if the situation is too severe for a single valve. Main water valves will be located outside and needs to be turned off with a pipe wrench.

Cleaning Up the Water: Begin mopping up the water as soon as safely possible. Place buckets underneath any leaks on the floor underneath the leak to avoid any more damage. Try to keep the area around the emergency area as dry as possible to make it easier for the plumber to work. Don’t mop or touch the water if there is any chance it may be affected by an electrical current. Our plumbers will deal with these situations as safely as possible when they occur.

Call the Plumber: This last step is the most important step in a plumbing emergency. Call a plumber as soon as the emergency arises. Do the rest of the minor touch-up and cleaning before the plumber shows up.
