Items That Can Help Prevent Plumbing Disasters

Many homeowners believe that all plumbing problems are going to cost lots of money to remedy. In actuality, the true cost of the work we do at All Hours Plumbing, Drain Cleaning, Heating & Cooling can vary considerably based on many factors. There are some steps that homeowners can take to prevent relatively small plumbing concerns from blossoming into serious problems that require extensive repair work. These tips are not going to apply to every situation, so homeowners should always keep our phone number handy in case an emergency happens in the evening or on weekends.

Have a Few Buckets in Different Sizes

Buckets are among some of the most useful of all household tools; no homeowner should be without them. They are useful for cleaning and can be used to store cleaning supplies when not in use. Your buckets can also be used to catch drips and even flowing leaks. Whether water is coming from the pipes under your sink, the showerhead, or the tank over your toilet a bucket is going to contain the water and prevent it from causing a lot of damage.

Water can cause many kinds of damage, such as:

  • Warping wood and painted wooden surfaces
  • Lifting linoleum flooring tiles
  • Soaking into soft surfaces and causing mildew
  • Seeping into walls to facilitate mold growth
  • Staining antique ceramic

Waterproof Tape

Plumbers tape and other types of water-resistant tape can be used to patch small leaks in pipes. These products should not be considered a repair; they are simply a remedy that can be put in place for a few hours until a plumber arrives. The tape will help prevent water from spraying onto nearby surfaces, causing some of the damage mentioned above.

Contact a Plumber Promptly

The best way to prevent the escalation of water damage is to arrange for plumbing services as soon as the problem is discovered. We offer 24/7 emergency services to help prevent problems from becoming disasters.
