What to Do When You Have a Plumbing Emergency in Allentown

If you’re experiencing a plumbing emergency, don’t panic. By taking the simple steps below, you’ll be able to regain control and minimize damage to your home or business: 

  • Shut off water at the source. If you have a localized problem, shut off the valve connected to the fixture. For large-scale emergencies, shut down water at your home’s main valve. If you don’t know where your shut-off valve is, have a plumbing expert locate it.
  • Contact a plumbing expert.Keep your plumber’s contact information handy, so you can reach out to them immediately when an emergency arises. The longer you delay service, the more likely you will experience damage to your fixtures and personal property.
  • Slow or stop water leaks.If you know where the source of your leak is, use plumbing tape or old towels to try and slow the flow of water.
  • Avoid using chemical cleaners.For drain-related emergencies, refrain from using chemical drain cleaners. These caustic chemicals can cause more damage to your pipes, emit dangerous fumes, and complicate the situation for your plumbing professionals.

Allow our team to help restore full functionality to your home or commercial business. Call 610-432-7001 to request emergency plumbing services.
