Clogged Pipe Leaking Dirty Water

What are signs of plumbing problems?

Although you cannot predict when you will need emergency plumbing service, usually your home gives you clear signs of plumbing emergencies on the brink of happening. It might be easy to ignore minor plumbing problems, like running toilets or leaky faucets, but they can result in higher water costs and water damage. This can lead to mold growth that can affect your roof and home’s structure. 

Call us if you notice any of these signs of a plumbing issue. These signs indicate you need immediate emergency plumbing services:

  • You have a shower leak or a leaky faucet. This may not seem like a major issue, but the trickling water can eventually wear away the piping and cause it to burst
  • If your water bill is higher than usual
  • You have noticed signs of water damage in your walls such as brown or orange amoeba-shaped stains on the walls or ceilings, flaking or peeling paint, warped walls, bubbling paint, streaks of color on the walls and a musty odor in your house.
  • If you notice rusty or cloudy water coming out of your faucets, varying water temperature, water is not heating or your hot water runs out quickly. These are signs of water heater issues. You should call us for emergency plumber services if you hear rumbling or popping noises coming from your water heater. These could be signs of sediment buildup hardening the inside of your tank.

With regular maintenance service, we check your fixtures, metal screws and nails for corrosion, so we can prevent leaks and water damage. This maintenance can save you money in the future. We also look for signs of water stains on walls and ceilings, musty odors, mold growth and saggy ceilings to assess if you require a plumber or another specialist, like a roofer. Contact us before a minor plumbing issue becomes a major plumbing emergency. If it is time to update your plumbing because you have noticed these issues, call us at 206-737-1261. Schedule a time for one of our plumbers to visit your property and make recommendations.

Is a backed up drain an emergency?

Most of the time, a clogged drain can be fixed by using a plunger and does not require emergency plumbing services. However, a backed up drain can create a need for emergency plumbing services because it poses a health risk. Contaminated water can overflow inside of your property if you do not call an experienced plumber right away. 

A blockage in the sewer drain line is more likely to occur in areas where the water and sewage lines are connected, and in homes where the septic system is covered by water. Signs of a sewer drain clog include water backing up into the shower when flushing, a flooded yard, if you hear the toilet gurgle when you turn on the sink next to it, if water draining from your washing machine backs up into your toilets or showers and if you notice sewage coming out of the drains. This is not only a plumbing emergency, but a health and safety hazard. If you notice a blockage, you need fast and reliable emergency plumbing services. 

From backflow valves to pressure plugs, threaded caps and twist plugs, our emergency plumbers at Home Care Contractors can install new drain plugs, especially in areas prone to flooding, to protect your home from a plumbing emergency. Our professional emergency plumbing service includes providing you an accurate estimate within 24 hours for drain cleaning, unclogging and maintenance. Call 206-737-1261 to speak to a professional emergency plumber. 

Is blocked sink an emergency?

At first, a clogged drain does not appear to be a plumbing emergency requiring immediate service. Because sinks are used so often, especially in bathrooms and kitchens, a backed up drain can become a plumbing emergency quickly if it cannot be cleared with a plunger. Additionally, back-ups in your plumbing can become very unpleasant quickly. Home Care Contractor’s emergency plumbers are here to help and get your drain running again.

If you find yourself in this plumbing situation, shut off the water until an emergency plumber can arrive. Use a plunger and attempt to release the clog. If it does not release, call an emergency plumber who can provide you fast and effective service.  

Many people try to treat blocked sinks with chemical drain cleaners. Over time, however, those chemicals can dissolve the protective coatings and sealants on the pipes in your plumbing system, making them weaker and more prone to leaking. Our plumbers advise homeowners to call us to manually and safely remove debris from bathroom sinks and kitchen sinks.

Unfortunately, Seattle plumbing emergencies cannot wait to be fixed. This is why we offer emergency plumbing service to our customers 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A benefit of working with the emergency plumbers from Home Care Contractors is we are well equipped to handle any kind of plumbing problem, from broken water heaters, cracked water lines, clogged drains and more. 

What is the most common plumbing problem?

The most common reason people need emergency plumbing services is due to a burst or leaking pipe. The fear of damage to their home compels people to call us immediately to block the leak, fix the affected pipe and check for additional vulnerabilities. Burst pipes are often caused by an increase in pressure due to a clog or blockage. This is why if you have a clogged drain you are having difficulty clearing yourself, you should call us so we can remove the clog before it leads to a more expensive issue.
