Finding yourself in need of plumbing help is usually not a fun situation, but finding the right help for your San Carlos plumbing repairs doesn’t necessarily need to be as stressful as you might think. With calm nerves and some smart planning, your San Carlos plumbing repairs can be taken care of quick and conveniently and at a reasonable price.

To help you navigate the process and get the best results from your plumbing repairs, our team of expert plumbers has gathered together these quick tips which we think can help steer anyone towards plumbing repair success.

Tip 1: Act right away in a plumbing crisis
In the event of a plumbing crisis, first make sure there is no risk to personal safety. If anyone is at risk, please call emergency responders immediately before worrying about plumbing repairs.

If no lives are at risk, we highly recommend giving us a call immediately for our 24/7 emergency plumbing repair services. With our emergency plumbing repair services, we’ll send a friendly plumbing expert out to your location as quickly as possible to get the repairs done right away.

This service is particularly useful if you’re worried about property damage being extended in a situation where you can’t control the plumbing problem and it threatens your property, such as leaks that are difficult to control.

Tip 2: Do damage control if needed
After you’ve called us for help, as you’re waiting for help to arrive you should try to take some steps to mitigate the effects of the problem, if possible.

For example, if you’re dealing with a leak, try to find buckets to collect the water and rotate buckets so that you can dump water outside when possible.

Also, you can use rags and fans to soak up water and speed up the evaporation process.

While our team will arrive as quickly as possible, these steps can help you protect your property as you wait for help to arrive.

Tip 3: Make sure you avoid plumbing teams with a bad reputation
If you’re planning on considering other plumbers, we strongly recommend avoiding plumbers who do not have a strong reputation among their past customers.

At Performance Plumbing, we’ve spent a lot of time and effort over the years to ensure our customers are happy with our work, and we think our reputation on online review platforms like Yelp reflects our efforts.

If you want to make sure your plumbing repairs are in trusted hands, we suggest sticking to a trusted name like Performance Plumbing, otherwise you may need to expect results that are less than exceptional.

Tip 4: Make sure your plumber has professional qualifications
Another tip for anyone considering other plumbers is to be sure to check for professional qualifications and insurance.

At Performance Plumbing, we’re proud to protect our customers by being fully insured, and we always maintain our professional license. While problems are extremely rare for us, we feel better knowing that our customers have more peace of mind by choosing us rather than uninsured, unlicensed freelancers.

Tip 5: Request an estimate before any agreements are made
Before you have any work start on your plumbing repairs, be sure to ask for a free estimate if you want to get an idea of what the costs and time needed will be like. At Performance Plumbing, we’re always happy to provide a free estimate up front before customers agree to move forward, so make sure you request one if desired.
