When Should You Call for Emergency Plumbing Services?

If you’ve ever had to deal with a plumbing emergency, you know just how frustrating it can be. There’s nothing worse than waking up, only to find that your home has been flooded by your pipes. No one likes dealing with an emergency, but the sooner you deal with your plumbing emergency, the less damage your home will have. As a professional residential plumber in MD, we wanted to take a bit of time today to talk about some of the different plumbing emergencies that could strike your home.

You’ve Got a Burst Pipe

One of the worst things that can happen in your home is to have a pipe burst. A burst pipe can flood your entire home, causing damage and devastation everywhere. If you have a burst pipe in your home, you need to get in contact with a MD residential plumber immediately, and should start acting fast. You may want to start trying to dry things, but if it’s a main pipe it may never stop flooding. You may be best off trying to remove certain items, keeping them dry.

There’s a Clog Somewhere in Your System

If you’re noticing a decrease in water flow, or if you think you have a clog in a pipe, you could have a plumbing emergency on your hands. Clogs can lead to burst pipes, and burst pipes can cause thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars worth of damage. Solving a clog is much easier than solving a burst pipe, so if you suspect there’s a clog in your homes piping, get into contact with a professional MD residential plumber immediately.

Your Water is Black, Smells, or is Not “Normal”

Perhaps the greatest innovation of the modern world is the invention of running water. We are all so fortunate to be able to just turn on our faucet and have safe and clean drinking water. But if you notice something is off with your water, it may be because of a problem in your plumbing. Any kind of discoloration or smell could indicate a contaminant has entered your water supply. You shouldn’t drink any water that you’re weary of, and instead should have it treated by a MD residential plumber ASAP.
