Turn Off the Water

Whether you’re experiencing an overflowing toilet or you have a pipe that has burst somewhere in your home, you want to stop the flow of water. To do this you need to find the water shut off valve. If it’s a toilet or sink that is affected, you should be able to turn the water from the nozzle that is located near the pipe that leads to the affected fixture. For busted water pipes, it’s better to turn off the water to the whole house. Do this as soon as possible to prevent additional water damage.

Mop of Standing Water

While you wait for a plumber to arrive, you can sop up any standing water with a mop or towels. You may also opt to use a fan to dry out the area. Getting the area dry will prevent the growth of mold, which can quickly develop (even more so if moisture has been present for more than 48 hours).

Pro tip: We advise homeowners not to sop up any raw sewage that may be present in the home. This can be hazardous. We suggest waiting for your plumber to arrive to figure out the next course of action.

When you have a plumbing emergency, don’t worry! Calling professional services will guarantee that a 24 hour plumber will be to your home in less than 90 minutes with a fully-stocked vehicle and the desire to fix any problem quickly, effectively, and inexpensively.
