Emergency Flooding Plumbing Services

When you have a flooding problem, you need to take action right away. Contact us immediately to get the help you need.

Flooding is a threat that may not be noticed right away. Most people are confident that their pipes are working the way they should and that all their water is safely contained. If you don’t see your water pipes, then you probably don’t think about them very often and you may not think to have them checked every now and then.

So, when you find a flooding problem in your home, it likely comes as quite a shock. You may wake up one morning and see water sitting in your hallway or flowing through your bathroom.

When the flooding begins, you will be able to see right away the potential for serious damage to your furniture, carpet and belongings. Water makes its way into every crack it can and seeps anywhere it can reach. It could go into your walls, affecting wiring, and down into your home’s foundation, causing structural instability. Everything around the flooded area will be affected by the pervasive moisture.

What Causes Flooding?

There are a number of reasons why your home may experience flooding. It could be a burst pipe that’s to blame. This happens most often during the winter, as water becomes more expansive as it freezes. This can force the pipes apart, even if they are built very well.

Flooding can also occur when the sewer is backed up. If the sewer main is blocked, then water can flow out and over into the house. Maybe a blockage has been created by expanding tree roots or by too much build-up of grease or debris. If the septic tank is not maintained, then overflow from that tank can happen in time.

A heavy storm could also cause the flooding. If there is enough rain, then your entire neighbourhood could become flooded.
