Whether you own a home, rent an apartment, or own a business, plumbing problems are unavoidable. A small leak that went unnoticed a week ago can turn into a deluge that can soak your carpets or make the bathroom floor a liability nightmare. If the worst occurs, you need to have an emergency plumber on speed dial for these reasons.
Problems Get Solved Faster
If a water line breaks, hundreds of gallons of water could be lost in the process. Having an experienced plumber there to address the problem as soon as possible can prevent you from not only wasting water but wasting money. If you already have an emergency plumber on call, he or she can be there to repair the damage. However, if you’re unsure who to call, you might waste half an hour to an hour just looking for someone who can come out to fix the problem immediately.
You Can Avoid More Property Damage
Water damage can be particularly destructive. A small 1/8 crack in a pipe can release about 250 gallons of water a day, all of which can cause damage to wooden structures, insulation, and electrical fixtures in the building. If a plumber can get to the leak sooner, the property damage is more limited. This can be particularly useful if the materials soaked with water might later be a breeding ground for toxic black mold. The sooner a plumber can solve the plumbing problem, the sooner you can put your mind to repairing the damage and drying out the building structure.
Inspections After the Fix
Plumbers are also especially useful to have around after the problem itself has been fixed. You may know how to tighten a bolt, but do you have the training to know where to look for related problems? A plumber does. Great emergency plumbers will inspect your system to make sure there are no other potential problems. For example, if a crack showed up in an old system, an experienced technician can look for other weak points in the pipes or inform you that your plumbing system should be replaced.
