Tips from the experts at Above & Beyond Plumbing & Heating

You’ve just came back from a long day at work, and you come home to one of your worst nightmares..

There’s water all over your floor and you’re not sure where its coming from. Whether it be leaky pipes, or a malfunctioning toilet you know the problem is serious and you need a solution fast.

The average plumber stopped working hours ago, and the water on your floor isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Thankfully the professionals at Above & Beyond Plumbing & Heating provide 24/7 emergency plumbing services in Worcester, MA and the surrounding area. With a quick call, a plumber can be at your residence as soon as possible to address the issue promptly and professionally.

However, what can you do in the meantime to help diagnose and mitigate your current leaky situation?

Don’t worry, the experts at Above & Beyond Plumbing & Heating have put together some tips to help keep the waters at bay.


Stop The Water Flow.

Your first priority is stopping the flow of water. If you’ve identified the appliance that’s leaking, shut off water to that appliance. If you’re not sure where the leak is coming from, shut off water to the whole house. Next, turn off electricity at the fuse box. If you can’t reach the box without wading into water, call an electrician and stay out of the wet areas.

Before removing any water, document the damage for your insurance company. Capture the extent of the water damage and all possessions impacted by the incident.


Minimize Damage.

Try to remove the water, as soon as possible. You can rent a sump pump, a wet vac, and industrial fans from most hardware stores.

If you do it yourself, open doors and windows to help air out and dry the home. If you can turn on the electricity, crank the heat or air to accelerate the drying process.


Get back to normal.

The extent of the water and the situation will impact the amount of work required to get your home back to its former glory. However, now that you have addressed the immediate issues, assess whether or not you need to reach out to a professional to assess damage and further repairs.

Above & Beyond Plumbing & Heating can help with any type of emergency plumbing situation, and will always provide quality service with fair and competitive pricing.
