Geelong Emergency Plumbing Services - 24 Hours
There can be all sorts of emergencies that require the services of a plumbing professional. A burst pipe, for example, can cause a lot of water damage in a hurry. If you're not prepared for such an event, you could be in for a lot of trouble. One way to help prepare for a plumbing emergency is to have contact details of a reliable plumber who can come to your rescue when you need them, saved to your mobile. You can ask your family and friends for referrals, or you can search online for reviews.
Another important step is to make sure you know how to shut off the water to your home in case of an emergency. This is something every homeowner should know how to do.

Types of Plumbing Emergencies
There are many types of emergency plumbing. One example is a burst pipe. A burst pipe can cause a lot of damage in a short amount of time. The most common cause of a burst pipe is freezing weather. When the water in the pipe freezes, it expands and can cause the pipe to burst. Other causes of a burst pipe include corrosion, improper installation, and excessive pressure.
Another type of emergency plumbing is a clogged drain. A clogged drain can cause water to back up and overflow. There are many things that can cause a blocked drain. One common cause is a build-up of grease and fat. This can happen when dishes are washed in the sink or when cooking oils are poured down the drain. Other causes of a blocked drain include hair, dirt, and debris.
It is important to know how to handle such emergencies when they occur. The first step is to turn off the water. This will prevent further damage. Once the water is turned off, the next step is to call a plumber. A plumber can help to clear the blocked drain and repair any damage that has been done to a pipe etc.
