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.
