Immediate Steps to Take

  1. Shut Off the Main Water Supply
    The first step in any plumbing emergency is to stop the flow of water. Locate your main water valve and shut it off. This prevents further water from causing damage to your home.
  2. Contact a Trusted New Jersey Plumber
    Don’t wait to call a professional. New Jersey plumbers like Jersey Boys are equipped to handle emergencies efficiently, preventing small issues from becoming bigger problems.
  3. Drain Your Pipes
    After shutting off the main supply, open your faucets to drain the remaining water in the pipes. This step reduces pressure and potential water damage.
  4. Turn Off Individual Fixtures
    If the issue is with a specific fixture, like a toilet or sink, shut off its supply valve to isolate the problem.

Minimize Damage

  • Clear Standing Water
    Use towels, mops, or a wet-dry vacuum to remove standing water. This action helps to prevent mold growth and protects your belongings.
  • Document the Damage
    Take photos and notes of the damage for insurance purposes. Knowing the extent of the damage can also help your plumber understand the situation better.
  • Safety First
    Keep a safe distance from electrical appliances if they’re near water and consider turning off your home’s power if necessary.

Be Prepared For Plumbing Emergencies

Creating an emergency kit with basic plumbing tools and knowing the location of your home’s main and individual shut-off valves can save precious time during an emergency.
