Do damage control if necessary
If your plumbing problem is ongoing and you’re waiting for help to arrive, there are several steps you can take to try to reduce the amount of damage that occurs due to the plumbing issue.

For example, if you’ve got a leaking pipe, you can try the duct tape solution to temporarily patch it. You may want to use towels, rags, or old clothes to soak up water and move it to a desirable location for disposal, such as a sink.

Buckets are also great for capturing leaking water to prevent it from getting all over your property, and opening windows and using fans may help dry areas that have already been exposed to water. Be careful when using electronics like heaters, blow dryers, or fans to dry areas that have water exposure, because combining electricity with water can be a serious safety risk. Try to avoid using these electronics unless you’re certain there is no safety risk.

Find a skilled plumber with relevant experience
When it comes to making sure your plumbing repairs are done professionally and efficiently, the most important aspect is the plumbing professional who performs the repairs. There are some important criteria you should apply when deciding which professional plumber to work with.

First, be sure to check to ensure the plumber is fully licensed and insured. At Performance Plumbing, we’re proud to have our professional license and insurance to provide our customers with peace of mind and reassurance of the professional standards that we hold ourselves to when performing plumbing repairs. We suggest avoiding uninsured, unlicensed plumbers who may not specialize in plumbing work and who may introduce unnecessary financial risk to your plumbing repairs project.

In addition, be sure to check the reputation of the plumber. At Performance Plumbing, we’re proud of our outstanding overall rating on Yelp and our positive customer endorsements, so we think you shouldn’t settle for anything less than an equally outstanding plumbing team.

Finally, ask for a free estimate up front before you commit to the plumbing repairs. A skilled plumber like our team members at Performance Plumbing should be able to offer you a free estimate that explains all of the costs and labor involved to satisfy your plumbing repair needs.
