Problems with some home appliances and systems can lead to inconveniences. A failed air conditioning system, for example, means some hours in discomfort during a hot day until the trouble can be fixed. Problems with indoor plumbing, however, are often immediate and create more trouble than basic inconveniences. In many cases, plumbing issues are emergencies that must be remedied as soon as possible to prevent water damage or other serious household disasters.
To handle plumbing emergencies in your home, keep a number on-hand for a great plumber. We think you’ll find that Baxter Comfort Solutions is the right plumbing contractor to call for all your emergency situations—as well as all your non-emergency plumbing situations. Our plumbers are trained, licensed, and insured so you can trust them to get the job done right and on time. We provide plumbing service to Baxter, IA and elsewhere in the “golden circle” between Ames, Des Moines, Newton, and Marshalltown.
Often, the first impulse homeowners have when a major plumbing leak starts up, such as in a busted faucet or a malfunctioning toilet, is to seize wrenches and try to fix it on their own. We don’t recommend this. When you are confronted with a significant leak from your plumbing, no matter where it is, shut off the water to the house at the main, and then call for licensed plumbers. (We also recommend that you have an automatic shut–off valve installed for your home that will close off the water line on its own in case of flooding.) It requires the skills and tools of a professional plumber to fix emergency plumbing leaks effectively and quickly so your plumbing system is restored to you.
What counts as a plumbing emergency? We have already mentioned major emergency leaks: if you can see water escaping from where it shouldn’t be, that is definitely an emergency. In fact, anything that you think may be a plumbing emergency is enough to call a plumber: even if it isn’t an urgent repair issue, it’s always best to play it safe when it comes to your household plumbing!
Other situations that call for emergency plumbers include a toilet that starts to overflow, a sudden loss of water from all faucets, clogs appearing simultaneously in multiple drains, no hot water, or loud rumbling sounds coming from the pipes.
You can depend on the licensed journeyman plumbers at Baxter Comfort Solutions no matter how fast you need plumbing service. We’ll dispatch a plumber to your house in a van fully stocked with common plumbing parts, and you can expect the problem to be fixed on the spot. We are focused on customer service and seeing that you are completely satisfied with any repair services our plumbers do. If you aren’t, they’ll come back to your house and fix what was done wrong at no charge.
