3 Things to Do in an Emergency Plumbing Situation, Texarkana, Arkansas

Plumbing problems can spring up when you least expect them. Instead of waiting for them to worsen and cause more damage, however, it’s often best to follow a few emergency plumbing guidelines to remedy the situation.

With over 50 years of experience dealing with plumbing issues, big and small, Service First Electrical and Plumbing in Texarkana, AR, wants to remind homeowners of what those guidelines are:

  • Shut The Water Off: The first thing to do after an emergency plumbing situation springs up is to shut off the water source to prevent any more damage. Depending on the extent of the issue, this could be as small as turning off the valve behind the toilet or as large as turning off the main valve to your home.
  • Emergency PlumbingTake A Look At The Damage: Before you call a plumber, it’s a good idea to take a moment to really assess the damage that’s been done. This way, you’ll be able to clearly explain to the plumber what the plumbing emergency is, and they can gauge a better estimate of how much time and money it will cost to fix.
  • Contain Small Leaks: You don’t have to wait for the plumber to show up before you start tackling the small leaks. As long as the leak is easy to identify, wrapping some plumber’s tape or stuffing rags and towels around the pipes, should be able to prevent more damage until the emergency plumber arrives.

Once you’ve done everything you can on your end, call the professionals at Service First Electrical and Plumbing to finish up. Trust their highly trained technicians with years of experience and the latest and greatest tools to patch up your emergency plumbing repair in no time at all. Whether you’re in need of emergency plumbing or just routine repairs, call Service First Electrical and Plumbing today at (870) 775-1035 or visit them online to schedule services.
