HELP! What to Do When Your Emergency Plumber is Unavailable?

Pooling water, unexpected leaks, and burst pipes can all lead to confusion and panic. There are few household problems that can be as stressful and damaging as plumbing problems. The water access issues can cause short-term inconvenience and water and moisture can lead to long term damage in your home. If you return home or wake up to find a plumbing issue in your home that requires immediate attention, contact emergency plumbers right away. Aaron & Son Plumbing & Drain Services provides emergency plumbing services in Thornhill and Vaughan. We also offer preventative maintenance appointments to help you avoid problems and handle them easily if and when they arise.

What to Do While You Wait for an Emergency Plumber

Take these steps before you contact professional plumbers for fast and reliable emergency plumbing solutions:

  • Shut the Water Off – Prevent more water from gathering and limit the extent of damage by shutting off the water source. For flooding and large emergencies, the main valve should be shut off, most often by turning it in a clockwise direction. Toilets can usually be shut off by using the valve at the base of the unit. 
  • Prevent Damages – Stop small leaks as best you can, set up buckets to contain water, and take out old towels to keep water from spreading or sitting for longer than necessary. 
  • Ask for Advice – Once you have called for emergency assistance, ask about the estimated time the plumbers will arrive. Inquire what the best steps are for your particular issue and act in accordance with advice from a professional. They will be able to direct you to the best methods to offset hazards and minimize damage.
