4 Common Plumbing Emergencies

An unexpected water event with the potential to cause damage constitutes a plumbing emergency. Here are four common emergencies: a basement flood, an overflowing toilet, a clogged drain and a lack of hot water. All demand service from plumbing professionals.

Basement Flood

Due to a storm, a leak or failed sump pump, water damage can be quick and severe if not managed properly. Professionals are trained on water clean-up and maintenance and may provide preventative solutions.

Overflowing Toilet

Sometimes a toilet is flushed and the bowl fills with water that rises to the rim and flows out and onto the floor and just keeps coming. Time to call a plumber!

Clogged Drain

Kitchen and bathroom sinks can become clogged with food, hair, etc. When sinks are stopped up and grocery store remedies are not working, it’s time to call a plumbing company. A drain cleaning expert will arrive to fix the situation.

No Hot Water

When the hot water heater breaks, the first person to try showering will undoubtedly notice. Cold water replaces the hot which makes for uncomfortable bathing, dishwashing, etc. Calling a mechanical contractor or plumber will restore this basic comfort.
