You may think you are prepared for anything, however if and when an emergency does eventually occur, you might find you’re not.
You do all you can to keep an eye out for warning signs, but quite often, the warning signs are so subtle you don’t pick up on them.
When fate decides to hand you a plumbing emergency, our step by step guide might help you handle it!
Emergency Step 1
As fast as you can, get to your water shut-off valve and close it. This will stop the flow of water coming to your home and prevent any further water damage. It’s imperative that you know where the water shut off valve is at your property, so that in a situation like this, you’re not wasting time (and stress) trying to find it! Even if you are renting, you should be aware of where your shut-off valve is.
Emergency Step 2
Once the water shut-off valve has been closed, head back into your home and open all taps/faucets to drain any excess water out of them. This will also provide an indication as to whether you have properly closed your water shut-off valve.
Emergency Step 3
Grab your phone and call us! We will help you with this emergency. It’s important to engage a reliable expert!
Emergency Step 4
People often associate an emergency plumber visit with a pricey bill, which can unfortunately be true. To minimise water damage and repair costs while you wait, we recommend trying to remove as much excess water as possible. This will reduce resultant damages and any mould growth. Grab some towels and make use of your time while waiting for us to arrive.
