Most people think that only those plumbing troubles which lead to flooding can be qualified as an emergency. In reality, any issue that can cause material damage if left unattended, or that can affect your family’s comfort or well-being, can be considered an emergency that warrants immediate action. These issues can include burst pipes, a malfunctioning water heater, clogged drains or a gas leak.
If you are experiencing flooding in your home, there are a few steps you can take to help minimize the damage to your home and your belongings. If you can do it safely, shut off the main water supply to your home. You will find the main shut-off valve near your water meter, usually close to where the main water pipe enters your home. Once the flow has ceased, call a qualified local emergency plumber for immediate service. While you are waiting for them to arrive, you can try to remove any furniture or precious belongings from the affected areas so that they can begin to dry out.
