Burst pipes can happen for a variety of reasons. Whatever the case may be, it’s definitely an emergency situation. When your pipes bursts, you will want to shut the water off at the source as soon as possible to avoid more water damage. One burst pipe can lead to leaks in other areas, other burst pipes, and other issues. Once the water is shut off, your immediate emergency is under control. But you will still want to call your local plumbing company right away in order to get the issue resolved as soon as possible.
Sewer Back Up
One of the worst problems you can have is a sewer backup. It’s an unfortunate situation that can happen to anyone who has a sewer line…which is almost everyone. Your home can be contaminated very quickly if the sewer backups. Again, whatever the reason may be, you will want to contact the plumbing company ASAP in order to get the issue taken care of fast. The clean up is never pretty, but it will be less severe if you have the issue taken cared of quickly.
Even if your pipe hasn’t burst yet, a bad leak is a serious problem that you need to address right away. You may not be able to diagnose the leak yourself and when you have water seeping into your home, you are opening the door to mold and mildew into your home. Take care of these bad leaks right away!
No Hot Water
If you don’t have hot water, you can’t sanitize dishes, take a nice shower, or do laundry. You might have a hot water heater issue or you may need a new one. Either way, your plumbing probably needs maintenance and you need help. You might be able to wait till morning, but it’s still an emergency you don’t want to wait on.
