When it comes to unexpected home repair budget breakers, plumbing is at the top of the list. Unfortunately, no matter how many preventative services you use, there will still be a time when things are completely out of your hands as far as a plumbing emergency. Nevertheless, these types of situations do not need to turn your world upside down, and we have a few tips that will help you get things under control until we are making your emergency plumber repairs.
Your first step in handling a plumbing emergency
If there is water gushing into your home, it is obvious that your first reaction should be to get a plumber to come over as soon as possible. Sadly, there are some homeowners that think the first step is to turn off the water shut off valve, but this can lead to electrocution if the home is being flooded. When you call a plumber, the first thing they will ask is if you are able to find a water shut off valve outside of the home. Otherwise, the best idea is to evacuate the home during a plumbing emergency and wait for the plumbers to arrive.
Helping you when municipalities cause your home serious plumbing issues
One of the worst situations that can happen to a homeowner is having a city sewer back up into the home through the toilet during a storm. More often than not, this is a plumbing emergency that actually involves evacuating everyone from the home while the necessary cleanup can occur. Although this is an expensive and deeply disturbing situation, we are happy to help you and your family get back on your feet as soon as possible. In addition to making repairs and helping with the cleanup, we will also help you to file any necessary paperwork with your insurance company or in a lawsuit against the city to get every dollar you deserve.
