What Not To Do During Plumbing Emergencies

If you have a plumbing emergency, no matter the time of day, there are some basic things you should and should not do:

  • Do not go near the plumbing if you smell gas; call the gas company and leave the house immediately. Once the gas is off, call Rescue Plumbing.
  • If you hear a hissing sound, shut off water and electricity before calling Rescue Plumbing.
  • When you do call our plumbing emergency service, do as much as you can to prevent further damage such as shut off the water supply valve at its source.
  • Do not try and fix the problem yourself – use a licensed, professional Rescue Plumbing plumber to solve it.

Different Types of Plumbing Emergencies

No property is free of plumbing challenges. Emergency services are often needed as a result of some of the following:

  • New construction with faulty work or settling that causes damage
  • Renovations gone wrong, such as damaging a pipe during remodeling
  • Poor plumbing/band aid repairs in the past
  • Corrosion to existing infrastructure
  • Age related deterioration

Emergency Plumbing Service To Fix Your Problem

Rescue Plumbing knows you never plan for a plumbing problem to happen. That is why we offer on-call services.

We offer a free verbal estimate service call from our emergency plumbers with immediate, same-day service.

No other local plumber offers better service in times of crisis.

Whether it’s a major leak, a water heater issue, poor water supply, or other major plumbing issues we have your back.

Sometimes no hot water issues are as simple as the pilot light going out, other times, you need a new water heater. Depending on your need, we’ll have a stock water heater on our truck or in our warehouse. We can also order specialized new water heaters from our suppliers at the best price depending on your need.

Poor water supply or low water pressure can come from leaks.

Regardless of your issue, when you hire Rescue Plumbing, we’ll be responsible to solve your issue. As local Chicago plumbers, we offer emergency plumbing services across Chicago and surrounding suburbs.

What To Do if You Have a Major Problem

If you have a problem like your pipe bursts due to freezing temperatures, the first action to take is to shut off the main water supply to the property. We want to prevent the risk of flooding from burst pipes.

Once we turn off the water at the shutoff valve for the main water line we can prevent further flooding or damage from leaks in your home.

If you don’t know where your shutoff valve is, not to worry. We’ll find it and turn off the water supply. The repair will typically take a few hours. Our trucks are well stocked so repairs go quickly.

Why Do My Drains Clog at My Business?

Drains clog as debris gets lodged in pipes or coats them like grease. Clearing a drain is a simple process for us and might involve hydro-jetting or power rodding depending on the issue.

If your toilet backs up when you try to flush you may have a clog in a pipe.

Can You Help My Business with Plumbing Issues?

If your business has a problem, you’ve come to the right place. Whether it’s your sewer line, bathroom sink, kitchen sink (restaurants), toilet, broken pipe, clogged drain, or valve that needs to be shut, we’ve seen it all. The best part of hiring us is we have the professional experience to solve your problem.

Why Routine Plumbing Maintenance Can Fix Most of Your Problems

We have all of the licenses and certifications to perform plumbing work in your business or home.

Routine maintenance is important because it prevents issues from occurring in the first place. Regular plumbing checks can stop issues from becoming crises. It’s important you also check with your local water company and water meter regularly so you know if you have any leaks.

If you have a plumbing emergency, don’t hesitate to give us a call at (773) 799-8848. We’ll be responsible for getting your issue resolved right, the first time.
