Hiring a plumber is something that no homeowner wants to do but there are times when their expertise is very much needed, especially during emergencies. Here are three reasons why you need to call an emergency plumber.
Burst Water Pipes
One good reason to call a plumber is a burst water pipe. One single burst pipe can cause a financial nightmare, not to mention creating an atmosphere that is ideal for mold growth. It is a common emergency plumbing concern that homeowners often encounter during freezing temperatures. Reacting swiftly during that potentially disastrous situation can make a huge difference in saving your house from severe water damages and immense flooding that could haunt you for many years.
Keep in mind that a single burst pipe means wasting up to eight gallons of water every minute. Imagine how many gallons of water is wasted in just one day? Although existing damage and regular wear and tear can also lead to burst pipes in areas with warmer temperatures, freezing is still the primary culprit for this plumbing issue. To avoid wasting water and thousands of cash, be sure to contact an emergency plumber right away.
There is nothing worse than having a clogged toilet. It does not only prevent you from enjoying your bathroom properly but also cause serious distress for the entire family. A clogged toilet can be caused by a lot of reasons ranging from build up to obstructions. If you have tried to unclog the toilet using the basic methods, then you should go ahead and call an emergency plumber. Don’t force to unclog the toilet because this could lead to bigger problems if not fixed correctly. Furthermore, clogs can be a sign of a much bigger problem. If you are not a plumber yourself then you won’t be able to determine what the source of the problem is.
Plumbers are known for fixing problems like clogged toilets, stopped drains, and leaky faucets. But emergency plumbers can fix gas leaks as well. As a homeowner, you must never forget to have your home heater inspected annually to help prevent carbon monoxide as well as gas leaks. If you encounter the latter, you need to call an emergency plumber right away.
When you are facing problems with your plumbing system, you should err on the side of caution. Several homeowners hesitate to call a plumber even with their current circumstances thinking that they can fix the issue themselves or they want to cut costs by fixing the problem themselves. If you think the job is too big for you or if you don’t have the skills to fix it then call an Myrtle Beach emergency plumber immediately.
