Sometimes, a plumbing disaster needs to be taken care of as soon as possible. If you’re wondering whether you should wait until morning to call in the professionals or if you should reach out to an emergency plumber right away, here are some signs that your plumbing needs should be addressed ASAP.
- There’s a risk of water damage. Water damage can be a major hassle to deal with, so if you’re noticing discolored ceilings, puddles appearing, or other signs of water damage, it’s best to reach out to an emergency plumber to prevent further damage to your home.
- You’re having problems because of extreme weather. If you can’t get any water in your home on a super-hot summer day or can’t get hot water on a cold winter day, your health may be affected. Freezing temperatures can also cause your pipes to burst. Calling in an emergency plumber to assess the situation and help out in these conditions can save you a lot of trouble.
- There’s a sewage smell. No one wants to smell sewage, but there is reason beyond getting rid of the bad smell to reach out to an emergency plumber. Smelling sewage could indicate that your sewer pipes are broken, which creates a health hazard to you and your family. An emergency plumber can help minimize health risks by locating and fixing the problem in your sewage system.
