It’s impossible to know with certainty when you may have a plumbing emergency. Plumbing services may be needed on weekends and that’s why it’s amazing to have reliable weekend plumbers on call. Since you can never plan for when things happen, it’s nice to know that there are plumbers available when you need them the most.
There are times when you may second guess yourself. You may think the situation is under control when it’s not. There are also times when you panic and call for emergency help when the problem probably could’ve waited until morning.
Thankfully, the team at Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric has an emergency team of plumbers on hand. They are available during regular business hours for situations that simply can’t wait. It’s important that you know the difference between emergency plumbing issues and issues that can wait until normal business hours.
Flooding is definitely a plumbing emergency that needs professional help right away. Something you can do in the meantime before the plumbers get there is turn OFF the main water valve. Depending on the cause of the flooding, as well as the severity of the flood, it will need to be addressed immediately.
Flooding can be caused by blockages in the drainage system, which puts you and your family at risk of contamination. This means you could end up with wastewater re-entering your home. The severity of the flood in combination with the age of your home can also cause structural damage. Your best bet is to call the weekend plumbers at Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric at the first sign of flooding.
Unlike water leaks, handling odor and gas leaks definitely count as an emergency. Your weekend plumbers will need to assess where the smell is coming from. There are health side effects from ignoring odor and gas leaks. This is why once you notice the foul smell; you need to call your local plumbers. It could be a simple issue, or it could be related to your sewage line. In this instance, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Keep in mind that there are plenty of non-emergency plumbing issues that will need a professional plumber, but not straight away. A minor water leak can be seen by a plumber during regular business hours. Additionally, regular preventative maintenance can help keep most minor plumbing issues at bay.
The regular Monday to Friday, 9 to 5 schedule, unfortunately, makes plumbing repairs inaccessible to people who work those hours. This is why general plumbing repairs and maintenance are left to the last minute. An added benefit of weekend plumbers is that you won’t need to take a day off work to have necessary repairs and maintenance done.
At Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric, we understand that emergency plumbing services don’t wait for regular office hours. We also understand that many people are unable to engage in regular preventative maintenance services due to their current work schedules. This is why we are available every Monday to Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., as well as on Sundays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., for emergencies.
