When the pipe below your sink bursts, filling your kitchen with water, or your water heater begins to malfunction, you have a plumbing emergency you must deal with immediately. Any homeowner knows how damaging water can be to your home, which is why plumbing emergencies cannot be left alone.
Most homeowners nowadays have to be both a homeowner and, in some ways, a handyman. This is because of the continuous maintenance required by a home. When it comes to plumbing emergencies, though, it is best to set aside your tools and call in a professional such as Eyman Heating, Plumbing and Air. Eyman is available for emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. All you have to do is call (402) 731-2727 and we will be on our way.
Calling in a professional when you have a plumbing emergency is important. Below are just a few of the many reasons.
1. A plumber will find a permanent solution
When an emergency happens, some people panic. Even if you are not one of those people, if the emergency involves your home, it is liable to raise your blood pressure and cause you to look for the quickest possible solution, even if it is not the safest or best solution to the problem. Instead, a professional plumber will be able to assess the situation and determine a permanent solution to your problem. This way you will not have to face the same emergency again in a few months.
2. Hiring a professional can actually save you money
Your first thought when hiring an emergency plumber may be that it will be really expensive. But the water bill from a leak or the damage from a burst pipe or overflowing toilet can quickly become very costly if not addressed with the speed and precision of a professional.
3. A plumber has professional training in handling emergencies
This means that there will be less likelihood of an error occurring than if you did the work yourself. If you do the work yourself, you could potentially cause damage to other parts of your home, especially if you are stressed and hurried because of the emergency. Needless to say, this can cost you much more in time, stress, and money than the original emergency would have.
4. A licensed plumber, such as those employed by Eyman Heating, Plumbing and Air, carries insurance
If you hire a plumber from Eyman, the plumber will have insurance so that if they do cause damage to another part of your home, you will not be responsible for the cost of the repair. Conversely, if you try to fix the plumbing issue yourself and cause more damage, this cost is going to be coming out of your own bank account.
5. Hiring a professional plumber can keep you safe
Doing handyman work on your home, especially in an emergency situation, can be a dangerous undertaking. Broken pipes, large water heaters, high pressure water, and many of the other aspects of plumbing that you may come into contact with in a plumbing emergency can all be hazardous to your safety. A professional plumber is trained in safety techniques and is knowledgeable about how to handle potentially dangerous situations. This means you will not put yourself in harm’s way, and you will not have to worry about someone else – maybe your family – being harmed by the emergency as well.
If you experience a plumbing emergency in your home, be sure to call Eyman Heating, Plumbing and Air at (402) 731-2727.
