Got a plumbing emergency? Follow these steps.

Shut Off the Water

First things first: shut off the water as quickly as you can in a plumbing emergency to prevent excess water leakage and reduce water damage in your home. Make sure that you know where your home’s main water shutoff valve is located and how to operate it before an emergency happens. If you need any particular tools to access the shutoff valve, always keep them nearby for easy access in the event that you need to shut the water off fast.

Call a Plumber

Call a plumber that provides emergency services. At Santana Bros Plumbing, we understand that emergencies happen when they happen and not according to a schedule. That’s why we prioritize emergency repairs and get a plumber out to you as quickly as possible–so you can get back to your life!

Catch Leaks

Is there a burst pipe or major leak happening? Set up a bucket or bowl to catch any leaking water if need be. This will help reduce the mess you’ll have to clean up later and prevent further water damage to your home.

Drain Lines

Even after you’ve shut off the water main, there can still be a lot of water in your pipes. Drain them by running your faucets until they no longer have water coming out of them. This can help to prevent damage and make your plumber’s job easier as well.

Clean Up What You Can

If your plumbing emergency left you with water pooling on the floor, clean up whatever you can before the plumber arrives. Use towels and mops to sop up the water and put on fans to help dry things off. The sooner you can get water cleaned up, the less likely it is that you’ll have a lot of damage to deal with.

We hope you don’t have a plumbing emergency, but if you do, Santana Bros Plumbing has got you covered with quick emergency repairs, great customer service, and high quality work.
