Nobody wants to deal with a broken water pipe in their own house. Such an episode can entail a consistent series of expenses for repainting, replacing the affected objects, rehabilitating floors, etc. Not to mention the fact that the neighbors could be affected as well.
Here are a few tips from the plumbing experts at Christopher’s Plumbing for dealing with plumbing emergencies
- Turn off the water supply
The first thing you need to do to stop the leak is to turn off your water supply. If you have a large amount of water in your home, you should also turn off the electricity – provided it is safe! – and the gas supply, until the situation is resolved.
- Identify the source of the leak
In addition to broken pipes, water may come into your home due to improper sealing of a shower or a faucet, through a roof that is not in good shape, or it may come from a neighboring property.
- Remove excess water
The more water stagnates in your home, the more damage will occur.
If you want to reduce losses and collateral damage, turn to an authorized Denver plumbing company that offers emergency services in case of floods, cracked pipes or clogged sewers. This way, you can have the guarantee of a quality, durable and efficient work. At the same time, you will pay a fair price, as it is being calculated based on the work estimate.
