Our plumbers recognise that some services take on unexpected forms. Unlike work on bathrooms, central heating systems and boilers, a burst pipe isn’t something we can schedule into a diary. In the event of a plumbing emergency, and by following certain steps, property owners in Horley and the nearby areas can safely minimise damage until one of our plumbers arrives.

Plumbing Emergencies | First Steps

The first thing our plumbers advise is to be more aware of the less obvious signs of a leak. A burst pipe might spread torrents of water across the floor but a leak in the pipework tends to drip water into areas it shouldn’t be. If left unfixed, water can end up causing more damage from drips than in a short sudden burst. This is particularly true of drips that fall close to electrical power points or appliances.

Be vigilant for dripping sounds and look for damp patches on the floor, the walls and the ceilings. The presence of water in any of these areas always requires the attention of emergency plumbers.

If a leak or a burst pipe occurs at your property in Horley or Surrey, our plumbers recommend the following steps:

  • Isolate the Stopcock – Homeowners must know where the water stopcock for their property is and should check for its whereabouts if they don’t. Shutting off the water supply drastically reduces the level of damage caused in a plumbing emergency.

  • Open the Taps – Opening all taps in the home clears the system of water, reduces the potential for damage and provides a safer environment for our plumbers to work in once they arrive at your property to perform a repair.

  • Call D & R Plumbing & Heating Ltd – Please contact us on 01342 843724 or 07710 008505. Our plumbers arrive at your Horley, or Surrey property as quickly as possible to deal with situations on the most responsive basis.

  • Avoid Electrical Appliances – This includes avoiding light switches and plug sockets wherever possible. A leak in pipework can result in water seeping into the electrical system. This presents a risk of electrical shock to those living in the property.

  • Remove Excess Water The sooner you mop your property to remove standing water, the less severe the damage to floors, furniture and personal belongings. After mopping, position buckets or bowls underneath any leak points.

After isolating the problem inside your Horley or Surrey property, our plumbers perform a thorough inspection of the system to check for further issues. With a clearer picture of the cause of the problem and the damage, we can provide a no-obligation quotation for the repair work and schedule a suitable time to perform it.
