Most homeowners and property owners need a plumber from time to time; however, there are many cases in which emergency plumbing services are essential. Buffalo homeowners should be aware that there are certain plumbing issues that should be addressed by a trained plumbing professional as quickly as possible to prevent safety hazards and permanent damage to your property. Here are three warning signs you need to call for emergency plumbing services for your home or business:
Poor water pressure
While water pressure can be reduced from time to time, water pressure that’s consistently low generally warrants a buildup of some sort in your pipes. Rather than investigate the issue on your own, an emergency plumber can do a thorough investigation of your pipes to identify the issue, which could be a broken or cracked pipe, leak, or erosion in the waterline.
Signs of flooding
If you’re noticing even just small signs of flooding in your Buffalo home, emergency plumbing services may be needed. This is an issue to be taken seriously, and if left untreated, it’s not unheard of for homeowners to walk downstairs and step into a foot of water due to neglected flooding problems! Water can be damaging to your flooring, furniture, utilities, electrical system, and worst of all, your home’s foundation. An emergency plumber can address the cause of flooding and implement a solution as quickly as possible.
During the wintertime, frozen pipes are one of the most common issues indicating a serious plumbing problem. Severe winter weather and freezing temperatures can result in water in your pipes easily freezing, potentially causing your pipes to burst or crack. Typically, if you turn on your faucet or shower and no water comes out, it’s likely you have a frozen pipe and should immediately call a plumber.
Utilizing emergency plumbing services for the issues above is sometimes critical for the health and safety of your home or property, ensuring repairs are completed as quickly as possible before further damage is done.
