Types of Plumbing Emergencies We Respond To

  • Cold Damage: Extreme temperatures can adversely affect your plumbing. Pipes could freeze, especially if they’re located in unconditioned spaces or along exterior walls—and even underground pipes can freeze! If you don’t thaw the frozen area fast enough, the pressure could cause your pipes to burst, making a soggy mess once the plumbing warms up and the water starts flowing again.
  • Flood Damage: Heavy rain and flooding can cause problems with your plumbing. Clogs are the most common issue. Flood waters can carry dirt and debris into outdoor plumbing, where it settles and prevents water from flowing. This can also cause your sewer to back up, resulting in overflowing sinks, toilets, and basement floor drains. Torrential rains can even saturate the soil so much that the extra weight cracks underground plumbing, allowing water to seep out and dirt to get in.
  • Smoke and Heat Damage: If a fire breaks out in your home, you might not suspect plumbing damage. However, smoke and heat penetrate all areas of the building, potentially damaging your plumbing by melting and corroding pipes or loosening connections.

Reducing Water Damage During a Plumbing Emergency

When you notice something’s wrong with your plumbing after a fire, flood, or extreme cold, call C&Z Construction for emergency plumbing restoration right away. In the few minutes before we arrive at your property, take steps to help minimize water damage caused by leaky pipes and backed-up sewer systems.

For broken supply lines, shut off the main water valve that carries water into the building. Be aware that your water shut-off valve could be located inside or outside. Your best bet is to locate this valve before disaster strikes, so you’re ready to act fast in an emergency.

For sewer back-ups, preemptive action is required to minimize damage during a sewer backup. Installing a backwater valve on your sewer line and placing a plug over basement drains during heavy rain are good preventative measures. Also, avoid storing valuable items downstairs to guard against damage in case the sewer system backs up or the basement floods. If items are damaged, take them outside to air out and dry.
