5 Handy Tips to delay Plumbing Emergencies

We never want to think about what emergencies that will ever happen. However, you do not want to face a plumbing emergency. Plumbing emergencies could result in thousands of dollars of damage in our worthy home.  Being able to handle an emergency effectively can save you money and save your property from further damage. We are your friends and being more than friends we Professional Toronto plumber is providing you 5 handy tips to withstand plumbing emergencies;

#Firstly, Shut off the water

When you first discover a leak or plumbing problem, shut off the water to prevent further damage. A small leak can mean thousands of dollars in structural damage if left untreated. If the leak is at a fixture such as a faucet or a toilet, turn off the water running to the fixture. If you are unable to find the shut-off, or it does not stop the water, shut off the main water supply to your home, which is usually near your water meter.

# Then, Move Furniture into a Dry Area to Prevent from Water Damage

If you observe any leaks and overflow of water move furniture to dry place to prevent from further water damage. Pin up the skirts and put a few layers of aluminum foil under the legs of furniture that is not easily moved.

#Call the water company

Do not assume that you are responsible for the repair without contacting your water company. If you have a problem with the sewer main, a blocked sewer or the main water line, your water company may offer to send a plumber to find and fix the problem right away.

#Try to Unclog the Drain

Always turn off the water first. Then use a plunger to try to remove the obstruction. Even in a clogged sink, you can plunge the drain and often fix the problem. Plungers work best when you plunge rhythmically 10-20 times to build up the pressure in the pipe. If the sink or toilet is draining slowly, you can use a liquid drain cleaner. Beyond this point, you will probably want to call a plumber.

#Call to experienced Plumber to fix it

Try to solve yourself if you could not solve it. Then, call a plumbing company that offers 24-hour, emergency serviceTry to give the plumber as much information as you can about what fixtures are affected and what you have done to fix or stop the problem.
