What do you do in a water emergency?

What do you do if a pipe breaks? There are three simple steps to take during an emergency: turn off the water source, call a plumber, and then call Intek. You can call our emergency line (1-800-456-5004) any time, day or night, when you’re looking for water damage restoration near you. We’re happy to help.

Step One: Turn off the Water Source

The minute you realize your pipes have broken or you’re in the middle of a water damage emergency, turn off the water immediately. Make sure the valve is turned completely off – you don’t want water slowly leaking through and creating a bigger mess!

Don’t know where you need to go to turn off the water? Consult your landlord, roommates, property manager, or ask a plumber to point you in the right direction. The most important thing is to know where this is in your home before disaster strikes!

Step Two: Call a Plumber

A plumber is your best next move. He or she can share with you what you need to do to make sure the water really is done flowing, and you can make an appointment for them to come as early as possible to assess the situation and make repairs to the pipes in your home so that they don’t burst again!
