When To Call A Professional Plumber

Most homeowners will candidly admit to tackling some DIY projects to save money. And while this is an admirable choice, there are some times when a DIY project could end up costing you a great deal of money. And most of these projects are related to the plumbing inside your home. Water is one of the most destructive forces in nature. It erodes soil, washes away homes, and destroys the structural integrity of almost every material used to build your home. So a mistake when working on your plumbing system can result in water damage that costs thousands of dollars to repair. And even worse than the potential cost of water damage is the possibility of a hidden water leak, which could result in the growth of toxic black mold in your home. So knowing when to call (214) 388-8838 for the services of a Flow Plumbing professional will save you money in the long run.

Serious Plumbing Emergencies That Need A Pro

  • Water Heater Issue: A leaking water heater is cause for some grave concern. Not only are you looking at the possibility of a significant leak, but the water could also be hot enough to burn a person if the thermostat on the unit has failed. Also, many water heaters use electricity to heat the water. Mixing water and electricity can be a fatal mistake if you are not a licensed plumber. It is always better to be over-cautious and call (214) 388-8838 when you discover any issue related to your water heater.
  • Sump Pump Issues: Your sump pump is designed to prevent water from backing up into your home and causing damage. The water could be the result of heavy rain, melting snow, or an unusually high water table. But if your sump pump fails or is not working correctly, the result is going to be costly water damage to your home and the possibility of contamination. Wet walls, floors, and drywall are all optimal for the growth of toxic black mold. When this occurs, you will be faced with expensive mold remediation, home repairs, and more. Never risk the safety of your home and the health of your loved ones. Call (214) 388-8838 and know that a Flow Plumbing pro will have your sump pump repaired quickly and affordably.
  • Burst Pipes: Burst pipes are usually the result of a sudden and extreme temperature change. When the water in your plumbing pipes freezes and expands, the pipes burst. And while you might not notice leaking water immediately, it will begin to leak as soon as the ice thaws. When you suspect that you might have frozen and burst water lines, a fast call to (214) 388-8838 is your best solution. A Flow Plumbing licensed plumber will arrive quickly to inspect your home for burst pipes and water leaks before the damage becomes extensive.
  • Clogged Sewer Lines: Water damage in your home is terrible, but a sewer line back up is far worse. Not only will the sewage cause water damage, but it can also create contamination issues. Dealing with a sewer line issue is never pleasant. But, the pros at Flow Plumbing have years of experience and expertise with these problems. Don’t trust a handyman or rent a plumbing snake to try to eliminate a sewer line clog. In most cases, you will only be making the issue worse and paying twice to get the clog removed. Call (214) 388-8838 and know that our pros will eliminate the entire clog.
