An Emergency Plumber Will Save The Day | Boca Raton, FL

There are plenty of different situations in which you might need a plumber. In fact, there are going to be situations around your house where you need to call a professional all the time. But would you really need to call an emergency plumber? Or should you wait until a ‘more reasonable hour’ and call a standard plumber? This is a question you’ll probably be asking yourself frequently. Anytime that you think about hiring a plumber for your Boca Raton, FL home.

Can It Wait?

If you’re wondering whether something can wait you’ll want to think about what it really is. Do you have a dripping faucet? That’s something that can generally wait until a later time, though it’s important to note that all that water dripping is going to cost you on your next water bill. Still, it’s not going to be a danger to your family in any way, so you may be able to hold off on doing something about it. And you can sleep while your faucet is dripping as well. So you’re not going to be struggling all night.

Another factor that might be able to wait is if you have low water pressure. This can be annoying, but it’s not something that you need to fix immediately if it’s the middle of the night or a weekend when you notice. Instead, you can let these things go for a little while and then call a regular plumber in the morning or on Monday. It’s going to be a little bit more of a hassle for you throughout the period when you don’t have good water pressure, but it’s still possible to function within your home.

If you notice that one of your drains just isn’t going down as fast as normal then you might have clogged ducts. This isn’t a reason you would need an emergency plumber, but it is something you should watch out for. And, when you do notice the problem, it’s something you should call a professional about. You want to make sure that you’re getting your ducts cleaned out so that they function properly again. But you can probably wait until the morning or regular business hours to get it done.

… Probably Not

But what about situations that can’t wait? Well, there are going to be a number of them as well. In fact, there could be more situations where you need an emergency plumber than you might think. Some of them are obvious, but some of them might not be as obvious if you haven’t owned a home before or if you haven’t had any plumbing issues previously. Still, these are things that you should watch out for and make sure that you’re getting taken care of as quickly as you can.

The first situation where you need an emergency plumber is an obvious one. If you have flooding or a burst pipe in your home it’s time to call an emergency plumber. No matter what might be going on or what time of day or night it might be, flooding is not something that can wait and a burst pipe can cause a great deal of damage in a very short amount of time. It’s not just water that’s going around either. You could end up with damage to your walls, floors, and all of your belongings. Not to mention all that water is getting into the electrical in your home which is even more dangerous.

Another situation to call an emergency plumber is if you have anything backing up in your home. If your pipes or any of your drains are backing up, especially if they’re backing up across different drains, you need to call a professional to find out more about what’s going on and take care of the problem. You want to make sure that you’re getting it fixed quickly, before the issue can become even bigger and before anything else starts backing up. You could end up with a lot of damage within your home if water (or anything else) is backing up through your pipes.

Making the Call

If you do decide that you need an emergency plumber it’s important that you know who to call and that you call quickly. You don’t want to deal with an emergency situation on your own and you don’t want to let an emergency situation go for any longer than absolutely necessary. Sure, there will be times that you don’t notice the problem. Maybe you’re not home. Or maybe you are home but you’re sleeping through part of it. In that case you want to call an emergency plumber as soon as you notice that there is a problem.

Make sure that you let them know everything you know. That way, they can prioritize the calls that come in. If you have a burst pipe and extensive flooding is ongoing in your home you want to let the emergency plumber know that. That way they know to get to your house immediately. If you don’t explain your emergency situation you could be prioritized behind someone else with an emergency, even though yours might be a bigger problem or worse situation. So be as clear as you possibly can about what’s going on.
