Rushing water. Awful smells. Soaked floors, walls, and even ceilings. Plumbing emergencies can cause significant amounts of damage. When they occur, they can harm your home, place of business, or any other place where they occur. That’s why we offer emergency plumbing repairs. We can help you when all else fails when you’re most in need. Our plumbers are always available to assist. Below, we’ll cover some of our services as well as some actions you can take in order to minimize the damage during a plumbing emergency.
Our Emergency Waterworks Repair
At Air Pro Master, we treat emergency plumbing repairs like it’s an actual emergency. That means that when you contact us, we don’t wait around. Our services are available 24 / 7 / 365. The Air Pro Master plumbers will be there as soon as possible. So, when you call us, you’ll get a human being. You won’t get someone clear on the other side of the world or anything like that. You’ll get a local person, who will make sure that our pros are out to you as fast as possible.
When we arrive at your location, we understand that there is no time to waste. That’s why we’re able to make an on-the-spot evaluation, alerting us to exactly what is going on with your situation. From there, we’ll put together a complete plan for how we’re going to fix your emergency and implement it swiftly. Our prices are all reasonable, and free estimates are always available. No one should have to sit through a plumbing emergency, so we have several different financing options available.
Steps You Can Take
After our Air Pro Master plumbers have fixed someone’s plumbing emergency, people will ask us something along the lines of “is there something we could’ve done, some way we could’ve minimized the damage?” There are some steps that a person can take to make the resulting water damage just a little bit less, but you always want to be careful with these. The first thing to do in the course of a plumbing emergency is to make sure that you, your family, your co-workers, and everyone else are safe and secure. That’s the first order of business and the most important. After that, the next step is to contact us. We’ll be with you as quickly as possible.
After that, this is where many ask us “is there anything I can do before you arrive?” The first thing to do is to take a deep breath. It’s not easy to remain calm when you’re in the midst of a plumbing emergency, but if possible, it can be of great benefit to try to be a little bit calmer. Deep breaths are good. Taking a moment to think before acting can actually save you a lot of trouble and, ultimately, time. Once you’ve called us, you can rest assured that this emergency, dangerous, scary, and troublesome as it may be, will have a positive conclusion. It will get fixed. So anything that you’re able to do in the interim before we arrive is simply something that can make it just a little bit better.
Having said all that, one of the best actions you can take, should it be safe for you to do so, is to shut off the water source. This may seem like common sense, basic kind of thing, but you’re in the middle of an emergency – it can help to be reminded of common sense ideas every now and then. Shutting off the water can keep the problem from getting worse. It may not do so, but any positive benefit is to be taken at this point. This works for a wide variety of plumbing emergencies as well.
It’s also important to note that it might not be ever too late to turn off the water. Even after you’ve gotten your family to safety, even after you’ve called us, it can still behoove you to turn off the water. Should you get to turn off the water at some point after that, that’s fine. Keeping just a little bit of water from flooding can be a good thing, for a plumbing emergency truly is a case of “every little bit counts.”
More Steps to Take
To be clear, you don’t actually have to take these measures to help your home or place of business. However, they might end up helping out. If you want to do something and you can do something, these are actions that might help things. In that spirit, turning off the water heater can help. When we say “can help,” we don’t necessarily mean that it will fix the emergency you’re dealing with at the moment. However, it might be able to help keep your water heater from being further damaged.
Most folks think of their water heater as something that’s plenty sturdy and durable. For the most part, it is. However, these water heaters might be a bit more fragile than people think. They can be damaged during a plumbing emergency in ways that you might not necessarily anticipate. This is why we recommend that you turn yours off if possible, especially if you do so after you’ve shut off the main valve. Heat can build up inside your water heater with nowhere to go during an emergency. As you might imagine, that’s not a good situation, and can lead to bursting and other problems.
Helping you Through the Emergency
When you have a plumbing emergency, once you’ve gotten your family to safety and called plumbing professionals, it’s natural that your next concern is saving your belongings. Of course, the key here is, as always, safety. Even the most precious item isn’t worth the safety of yourself or someone else. If it’s safe and there are no concerns, then it’s worth it to get some of your belongings out of the way of the water. However, one thing to keep in mind (that isn’t always easy to keep in mind during an emergency) — if you have a precious possession that’s already wet, you want to put them somewhere they can dry out. That means making sure that they’re set somewhere the water can’t reach.
After our professionals arrive, we can help you to the best of our ability to make sure that your home or place of business is in its best shape possible. We always make sure to use the best machines and technology. That means keeping on top of what’s new in the industry so that we’re always giving our customers the best of everything. Instead of trotting out the same old kinds of machines, year after year like everyone else, we endeavor to make our services and methods better.
We know that most people don’t expect their plumber to be clean and neat. We’ve always resented the stereotype of the “smelly plumber.” That’s why when you contact Air Pro Master; we’ll send you a plumber who is clean and spotless. Each of our plumbers wears professional uniforms. They will arrive at your home clean and neat. Moreover, they will leave your home clean and neat as well. We don’t believe that our job ends once your plumbing emergency is over. Rather, our job is only complete once we leave your home or place of business clean after our repairs and maintenance.
A plumbing emergency can be frightening and overwhelming. We’ve had so many customers who initially tried to put them off, only to realize that they were making it worse for themselves. That’s why our plumbers are always available: we can tackle the emergency head-on as quickly as possible. That way, the emergency can be solved as quickly as possible.
