The first question to ask yourself when deciding whether to call an emergency plumber is whether or not the problem can wait. And very often it can wait until morning, or until after the weekend. But occasionally the problem is urgent, which is why most plumbing companies offer emergency plumbing services and make themselves available 24/7.
There are three main types of problems that might require you to call an emergency plumber in Las Vegas, NV.
A burst pipe can be an enormous issue. It can cause damage to your valuables and your keepsakes, undermine the structural integrity of your home’s building material and can cause a lot of expensive collateral damage. If you have a burst pipe, the first thing you need to do is cut off the water main to your house. If you’re in an apartment, you need to call your apartment’s emergency line or an emergency plumber right away. If you own your home, it’s possible you can wait until morning to call a plumber about the burst pipe once you’ve shut off the water main and mopped up the water, but only if you know you won’t need to use the water. And you certainly can’t put it off for too long. A home without working running water isn’t very livable.
Clogs might seem like the epitome of the non-emergency, but they’re not. Extreme clogs, especially clogs in your toilet, can cause all sorts of unpleasant problems. Even a minor-but-stubborn clog in your toilet can be a huge problem if you’re about to have guests. And major problems are unpleasant, to say the least (imagine the contents of your toilet backing up into your kitchen sink and your bathtub), and will almost certainly require an emergency plumber in Las Vegas, NV if you find yourself in this situation after normal business hours. We can get your toilet working again, before it becomes a house-wide emergency.
Emergency before a big event
If you have a big event planned, like a party or a poker night or your kid’s birthday party, and any part of your plumbing fails—your water heater, your kitchen sink, your toilet—you’ll probably want to call an emergency plumber. We can fix your problem quickly so you can get back to enjoying your long-planned fun. If something goes wrong on a holiday, such as Christmas, an emergency plumber is likely your only option, as most plumbers will consider that outside of normal business hours.
