“We’d gone to a show, and then stopped and had a few drinks,” Vonda said. “It was a great night, and then we got home.” The minute Vonda opened her door, she knew something was wrong. “There was at least an inch of water on the floor, and the whole place just smelled terrible.” Investigation revealed that something had gone terribly wrong with her upstairs neighbor’s pipes: water was cascading through the ceiling at an incredible rate. “I knew I needed a plumber right away,” Vonda said, “But where are you going to find a plumber in New York City at 3 AM?”
24 Hour Emergency Service from Your NYC Plumber
Plumbing emergencies can happen at any hour of the day or night. And when you need help, you can’t wait for regular business hours! That’s why it’s important to work with a NYC plumber who offers 24 hour emergency service. Whether you’ve got a toilet backing up, burst pipes, sprinklers that went off for no reason, or a heating system that quit when it’s freezing outside, it’s great to have a highly qualified professional plumber who will come when you need them.
How Do I know if my plumbing emergency is an emergency or if it can wait?
We’re often asked this question by NYC homeowners. One simple rule of thumb is “Is this situation putting anyone or any property in danger?” Obviously situations where water or septic is flowing through the building needs to be addressed immediately. If the heat has failed in the wintertime, that’s an emergency. Other situations, such as a shower head that suddenly started dripping, can likely wait, saving you some money. If you’re not sure, ask us: we’ll be happy to advise you on the best way to handle your plumbing emergency.
