If you’ve ever had to call a plumber, it was probably pretty obvious that you needed one. When your pipes burst or your toilet breaks, you know you need a plumber. However, there are other times when it may be less obvious that a plumber is needed. Today on the blog, your friends at Quality Plumbing & Heating Inc. are discussing the uncommon times you should call a plumber.

You Should Call a Plumber If...

You’re Remodeling

If you are planning a bathroom or kitchen remodel, you may find that you need major plumbing renovations that should be handled by a professional. Many remodels involve moving plumbing pipes or drain lines, installing sinks, or adding spa equipment like a custom shower. Instead of buying expensive tools you may never need again and spending weeks without the use of your bathroom, hire a professional plumber with the right tools and expertise.

You Smell Something Odd

If you have odd smells in your house, your first instinct might be to clean to try and get rid of it. However, if you can’t find the source, it might be time to call a plumber. The smell might be coming from a burst sewer line or even a gas leak. Sewage could be seriously close to backing up into your shower, or you could have a dangerous gas leak that definitely needs the attention of a trained professional.

Something Has Been Flushed

Unfortunately, things get flushed down the toilet that shouldn’t be, especially when there are kids in the house. If you catch your child flushing a toy or other foreign object, you may think it won’t be a problem as long as it goes down. However, even if it seems like the object is long gone, it may still be lodged somewhere in your pipes and will cause problems eventually. If something gets flushed, it’s imperative to call a professional to prevent major plumbing issues and damage.
