The holidays have come and gone, and with a new year kicking off, you can finally relax… right? Not if your pipes burst! There is no doubt that this is a time-consuming and stressful situation. At Stadler Plumbing we strive to keep you educated, so you know what to do when you find yourself face-to-face with a plumbing emergency.
Shut Off The Water & Electricity
First things first – shut off the water! This will stop the flow and allow you the time to properly assess the situation before taking any further action. If you don’t know where your main water valve is, now is the time to find out. Know where these things are, so you can access them easily and quickly, if needed.
You will also want to shut off the electricity in the area where the water damage has occurred. It’s no secret that water and electricity do not mix. This step will greatly reduce the risk of injury. No need to add further stress to already hectic situation!

Dry Things Out
When it comes to your pipes, you can leave the hard work to us! However, what about your carpet, clothes, furniture, and any other precious belongings that are now covered in water? Work fast and start getting these items dried out as much as possible. The sooner you begin the drying process, the more likely you are to save your watered down possessions. Move it all to a warm, dry area and put your fans to work!
Did important papers, old photos, and other various documents get soaked? This may seem like a hopeless situation, but there’s still a chance you can salvage these, as well! First of all, do not try to wipe the water off. Instead, mop the water by dabbing a paper towel over the affected areas. Then, carefully hang them to dry. You can even try freezing the items or putting them in rice! It may seem like a long shot, but what do you have to lose?
