Emergency plumbing situations tend to occur when we least expect them: the middle of the night, on the weekend, or during a family gathering on the holidays. It’s always at the worst time. Thankfully, there are so many wonderful plumbing companies offering emergency services for their clients. A common emergency consists of frozen or leaking pipes, flooding in the basement, sewer backups, or gas leaks. While proper maintenance can help prevent such instances, you cannot foresee every problem.

Causes of Plumbing Emergencies

The two most common reasons why homeowners call for emergency plumbing services are gas leaks and burst pipes. Both are serious in their own regards, and both warrant emergency services.

A gas leak, for example, is one of the most obvious emergencies you may experience in the home. Inhalation of gas can lead to severe health concerns and potential fire or explosive damage to your home.

A burst pipe, on the other hand, may result in structural damage, mold growth, insect infestations, and illness due to standing water or cold.

When to Call

If you feel as if your family or home are in danger, then there is no reason to hesitate to call for emergency plumbing services. Depending on the nature of the problem, you may be able to fix the issue yourself, which is why it typically pays to have basic plumbing supplies in the home. A simple leak, for example, can be repaired promptly, albeit for a brief period.

Furthermore, if the emergency occurs in the dead of night, you’re panicking, and the basement is flooding, call for emergency plumbers. If left too long, the situation could grow worse, which may lead to further damage and expensive repair costs.

minor or major plumbing work

We have recently completed a remodel of an 80 year old house and we used Pratt Plumbing for all of the plumbing renovation. Pratt was great in all respects: their ideas, their work, their timeliness, their prompt attention to details and follow through all were and continue to be of the highest caliber. Their invoices are reasonable and we would recommend Pratt Plumbing to anyone in need of minor or major plumbing work.
