How You Should Handle a Plumbing Emergency

Plumbing emergencies happen all the time. You cannot predict when a plumbing problem is going to happen because they could happen anytime of day or night. So how should you handle an Orlando plumbing emergency in the event you have one. Here are some tips on what to do in case of an emergency.

  1. Locate water main and shut down water to house if it is a water leak. If it is a sewer back up do not run any water that has to be drained into the plumbing system.
  2. Once the water is shut down and everything is under control call an Orlando plumber that provides 24 hour emergency service.
  3. If you have water damage ask your plumber what your options are. If you have extensive water in your home you need to have a water removal service to prevent mold from forming.
  4. If the emergency can be contained overnight and wait until the morning have your Orlando plumber come out first thing in the morning and this will usually save money.

The big thing is if you have a plumbing emergency don’t panic follow these steps and it will make things less stressful. It is also best to find your shut off valve before a plumbing emergency as sometimes they are hard to find. It takes time and in an emergency you need it shut down quick and some houses have no shutoff valves and you have to shut it down at the meter box and you need a spical tool to do this.
