Why Are Burst Pipes Considered Emergencies?
Burst pipes can cause extensive damage through flooding. They can affect rooms and entire floors in a short amount of time, and lead to mold growth on the walls of the home. Because of this, any burst pipe can become an emergency in a very short amount of time.
Water flowing from a burst pipe can promote rot inside your home, deteriorating both the interior of your home and its value. After a few days the rotting wood can begin to grow mold, putting you and the rest of your home’s occupants at risk of serious respiratory issues. Furthermore, flooding water from a burst pipe can rob your plumbing system of pressure.
What Are Other Plumbing Emergencies?
While a burst pipe may rank among the most dramatic of plumbing emergencies, other emergencies can pop up around your home. Recognizing when a situation is an emergency–or has the potential to become one–can save you the stress of letting it fester and eventually having to undertake major improvement projects.
Other plumbing emergencies are:
- Clogged Toilets: Toilets where the clog is not visible usually means there’s a clog somewhere along the line, and this could eventually lead to a burst pipe or even a decrease in water pressure.
- No Hot Water: A faulty hot water heater can be just as jeopardizing to your home’s safety. Sanitation begins to decline in the absence of hot water, as well as the comfort a warm shower can bring.
- Sewer Line Problems: Other plumbing emergencies include a ruptured or clogged sewage line, which could lead to sewer water being spilled all over your yard, damaging the grass and eventually making its way to other properties.
What Are Signs You Need Your Drains Cleaned?
Drain clogs can be months or years in the making, as grease and other viscous material coat the interior of your plumbing systems and hair gathers and piles up. It’s a good indicator you have a clog building up when your water begins to drain slowly. When the drainage problems appear not just in one location, but also throughout your home’s drain, a clog could be building in your home’s main sewer line.
When Is It Time to Repair or Replace Your Water Heater?
Discolored water, low water pressure and diminishing periods of water are all indicators your home’s water heater requires professional attention. Strange noises and the absence of hot water indicate your water heater needs attention right away.
Most water heaters will last ten years, and regular maintenance can help you maximize the life of your home’s water heater. Once your water heater begins to show signs of age, it could be time to get an entirely new system. It may be more economically safe to get a new system because you will be saving money on repairs and replacements that you would otherwise need for an older system. A new water heater can save you from constant repairs, while providing you with hot water when you want it.
