Emergency Plumbing Services

The licensed plumbers at Paul Bunyan Plumbing & Drains are here for you 24/7 when you discover a plumbing emergency in your home. Unfortunately, not everyone knows what issues should be considered an emergency that needs immediate help. But, in general, it is safe to say that any time water is flooding your home and you cannot shut it off, call 612-340-1444 for emergency plumbing service from the experts at Paul Bunyan Plumbing & Drains.

Reducing Water Damage To Your Home

When you discover a water line that is damaged and leaking, a leaking fixture, or other damaged plumbing components that are flooding your home, your priority is to turn off the water. Even if you are shutting off the water to the entire house, limiting the amount of water damage and potential for hazardous mildew and mold contamination is essential. Then call the experts at Paul Bunyan at 612-340-1444.

It is also helpful to understand that there are many, many water lines running throughout your home. So even once you shut off the water, there could be significant water draining out of all the pipes at the leak's location. So place a bucket under the leak if possible and then open the faucets throughout the house to help more water flow down the drains rather than continuing to flood your home.

Overflowing Toilets

As essential as toilets are, they can pose severe issues when malfunctioning. If you have a clogged toilet, it is vital that you reach under the tank and locate the valve to shut off the water flowing into the toilet tank. Then make sure that the flapper valve inside the toilet tank is closed, stopping any water from draining into the bowl. If a toilet plunger with the flanged base does not clear the clog, a call for emergency plumbing service is needed.

Backed Up Drains Or Sewer Lines

A single clogged drain is not typically an emergency issue. However, when you find that all the drains in your home are backed up, the problem is severe and needs immediate attention from Paul Bunyan Plumbing & Drains professionals. Because all of the drains in your home, including the toilet drains, converge into a single sewer line, it is possible to have raw sewage back up into all the drains of your house. So any issue that causes all drains to fail should always be considered an emergency. Call 612-340-1444 for emergency plumbing service to locate any drain or sewer line issue and correct it quickly and cost-effectively.

Beware Of DIY Solutions

Unless you are very handy and know a bit about plumbing, it is always best to leave plumbing repairs to the licensed experts at Paul Bunyan Plumbing & Drains. It only takes one small mistake when trying to correct a non-emergency plumbing issue to create a flood in your home and much more costly emergency repairs.
