What to Do When a Plumbing Emergency Comes Up in Scottsdale?

Whether it's a dripping sound, a gushing sound, or a roaring pop, nobody is prepared for a sound that mimics a waterfall. Water is a great necessity, but it's preferable when it moves from factor A to point B without taking time to flood your house.

It's usually easy to identify when things have failed. When you have a plumbing emergency, you need to have access to a reliable Scottsdale plumbing & HVAC company who is able to respond any hour.

Taking the right steps to keep your pipes in excellent shape helps reduce these times yet having a battle strategy in the event of something going wrong is also necessary.

The following offers quick bullet points to remember, in order to minimize damage.

What to Do When a Plumbing Emergency Situation Occurs

You can't know when, or where, a plumbing emergency will strike. You also don't want to go through a night of emergency calls and lost sleep for something simple.

Let's start with defining when you need an emergency plumber.

  • Clogs you can't unstick

  • Leaks you can't find or breaks in pipes

  • Water heater making noises or leaking

Each of these issues can cause cascading damage so are best dealt with quickly.

Act Defensively

As soon as you determine that you have an emergency on your hands, your first thought should be to minimize damage.

Start by switching off the shut-off valve. For a toilet or sink, utilize the valve nearby. For plumbing without a shutoff on the home appliance, go to the outside valve to stop all water flow.

Next, turn on any faucet that you know is not clogged. This releases the water that may be pressurizing the pipes.

If you spot a gas leak in a water heater, open up any home windows or doors and also shut down the gas main. Do not block doorways or home windows with towels, this can create an accumulation of gas to dangerous levels.

Act Quickly

With the damage source stopped, you can begin prevention. The following are what you want to do until a plumber comes.

Start mopping up or using towels to collect water already on the floor. The sooner you get the water off the floors and carpets, the better. Water damage doesn't take long to set it in. Remember the three categories of water and wear protective gear when dealing with gray and black water.

Lock up any pets and keep children out of the area. This protects them from harm, gives the plumber room to work, and keeps little feet from spreading water around.

Satisfied Customer

I really appreciated Manolos attitude and the way he had patience for all of my questions and never seemed like he was rushing or annoyed with me. He took the time to reexplain it to my husband when he got home. I didn't feel pressured into spending more money or like he was trying to just sell me stuff. I felt like he really took his time and that I was his priority. Thank you for having great service.
