Do you need an emergency plumber for your Harvey, LA home? Maybe you don’t even realize that what’s happening in your home is a reason to call for an emergency. Well, we’re going to talk about some of the obvious reasons you might need that emergency plumber and also some of the not-so-obvious reasons. That way, whenever you have an emergency you can get it taken care of immediately, instead of waiting around and letting things go on for far too long.
Burst Pipe– This is one thing that most people can recognize as an emergency. When water is spilling all over the house or in any area of the house you can definitely tell that there’s a problem. You can also absolutely tell that you need to call someone to get it taken care of immediately. Just about everyone will call a plumber in this situation. And calling someone is going to get the problem taken care of a whole lot faster and easier. That means cleaning up the mess as well as repairing the pipe itself.
Sewer/Sump Pump Problems– If there’s anything wrong with your sewer or sump pump that’s another reason that people call really quickly. After all, you definitely don’t want that kind of mess getting all over your home. If you notice that there’s any problem with the sewer or sump pump you should absolutely make a call quickly and get it taken care of. An emergency plumber will get to your house quickly and will make sure that whatever the problem is, it’s taken care of immediately and your family can continue to use the facilities in your home the way you would expect.
Gas Leak– You may not realize that you have a gas leak in your home but if you notice anything that seems strange it’s a good idea to get it checked out. You may or may not actually smell the gas, but if you feel strange or something doesn’t seem right you should call a plumber to check it out. Make sure to let them know that you think there may be a gas leak in your Harvey, LA home and they’ll come right away to see what’s going on and what needs to happen next.
No Hot Water– If you don’t have hot water that’s actually a reason to call an emergency plumber as well. This is especially important if you’re planning on going away for a while or if the temperatures are expected to get low. If there’s any danger of freezing pipes you absolutely don’t want to be without hot water. And you’re not going to want it for normal living either. After all, you’ll be spending a whole lot of time in the shower feeling a lot less than happy (if you can convince yourself to take a shower without that hot water).
Flooding– If you have flooding anywhere in your home you need to call an emergency plumber. Even if you don’t know where it’s coming from or whether it’s a leak or a burst pipe or anything else. Call the plumber. They can take a look and find the source of the leak, whether it’s a problem with a pipe, the sewer, the sump pump, the water heater or anything else in your home. And they’ll be able to take care of that source so you don’t have to worry about any additional leaking. That’s going to be extremely important to the integrity of your home.
Puddles in the Yard– If you have puddles in your yard and it hasn’t just rained (or you haven’t just had the sprinkler out) then that’s definitely not a good sign. It could mean that your sewer is leaking or that you have some kind of drainage problem going on under the ground. That water can start to seep up wards and result in a whole lot of damage before you even realize it. If you’re noticing puddles and especially puddles in the area of your septic system, it’s extremely important that you call an emergency plumber.
No Water– If you don’t have any water, let alone hot water, then you also need an emergency plumber. Not having water means that you’re not going to be able to use the facilities. You’re not going to be able to cook or clean and you’re definitely not going to be able to stay in your house for very long. Calling a plumber to take care of things for you will get you your water back a whole lot faster and you’re definitely going to be more than happy to be able to do whatever you want in your home again.
Frozen Pipes– If your pipes freeze you absolutely need to get this taken care of immediately. Frozen pipes could result in a burst pipe or a leak and that is definitely going to cause a mess in your home and a whole lot of damage as well. You want to make sure that you’re talking with a professional emergency plumber immediately if you think that your pipes might be frozen or if you know that there is a problem. That way, they can help you to thaw out the pipes and prevent them from freezing again in the future.
