  • Sewer backup – If your sewer is backing up, not only is this a problem for using the facilities, but it can also be a big health hazard. Call a professional as soon as you notice sewer backup.
  • No water – Not having any access to water is considered an emergency as you cannot use the bathroom and are unable to do necessary cooking and cleaning.
  • Flood risk – Flooding can occur from a number of different problems including a burst pipe, failure of a water shut off valve or sump pump or sewer backup. No matter what is causing the flood risk, you need emergency plumbing repair to minimize the damage done to your home and the amount of water allowed to infiltrate.
  • Frozen or burst pipe – A frozen pipe can burst and lead to flooding or no water. Call an emergency plumber right away.
