Most individuals believe that only plumbing issues causing things such as flooding qualify to be categorized as emergency plumbing problems.
However, this is a half-truth, as any issues leading to material damage when left unattended. Or problems that affect your well-being or comfort should also be classified as an emergency plumbing requirement.
Some of the common issues include; clogged drains, burst pipes, gas leak, or a water heater malfunction. If your home has suddenly started flooding, you can take a few steps to mitigate the issue. Start by shutting off the main water supply.
The shut-off-valve is closest to your water meter. It’s mostly placed nearest where the main water pipe enters your property. Such measures will help lower the damage caused to your home as well as belongings.
As the flow dwindles, this is the perfect time to call in a local plumber to undertake emergency plumbing repairs.
As you wait for their arrival, try your best to shift any furniture or precious household goods from the flooded areas so that they can start drying off, thus reducing further damage.

For others (such as replacement and major repiping components), they are more complex. The technician in charge will alert you of the number of days it will likely take to complete the project. At times, your plumbing issues might have been caused by clogged drains.
Due to heavy rainfall, the pipes are unable to handle the gushing water, thus making it find other ways to flow. For such a problem, the crew will ensure the clear any dirt and debris. They may have to use high-pressure water jets to cut to size debris and roots that are edged too deep.
