There are a few steps you can take to minimize any further water damage until a plumber arrives.
If it’s possible to stop the leak, stop it. Sometimes leaks happen whenever you run a certain faucet. Don’t use that faucet until help arrives.
If it’s not possible to stop the leak, locate your main water switch, and turn off the water to your house. This will help minimize the damage. Before anything happens, make sure everyone in your home knows where the main water switch off is, that way anyone can be prepared for a leak.
Try and remove things from the affected area. Any personal items that may get further damaged during work should be removed.
Dealing with leaks can be scary, but with the right advice and professional help, we’ll get you back to dry land in no time.
