BROOKLYN, NY (PRWEB) May 28, 2015
May 28, 2015 – Petri Plumbing and Heating, Inc., a leading plumbing company serving Brooklyn homeowners since 1906, is offering emergency valve tagging and plumbing emergency prevention advice for homeowners throughout the area. These tips can save residents time and money, while preserving homes throughout the Brooklyn community.
“Residents often experience the headaches of plumbing leaks, gas leaks, basement flooding, and overflowing toilets, which result is costly expenses,” said Michael Petri, owner of Petri Plumbing and Heating, Inc. “Surprisingly, most homeowners have no clue which valves to turn off – and they wait until a flooding emergency strikes before they educate themselves.”
When a leak begins, the appropriate water valve should be shut off immediately to prevent worsened flooding – however, many homeowners are unaware of how to turn off water valves or which valves should be shut off in the first place. Petri Plumbing offers valve tagging, a service in which a technician comes out to label each valve, making it easy for homeowners to find the correct valve in case of a crisis.
“We decided to offer this service, because we care about Brooklyn residents and want to help them take preventative measures in any way we can, especially since we have so many old homes with plumbing issues in our area,” said Petri. “In the summertime, we see several leaks, garbage disposal clogs and frozen-out air conditioner units, and we are hoping residents can take this advice to avoid unnecessary expenses in the future.”
An important part of preventing plumbing-related emergencies is to know what is considered an emergency. Petri Plumbing defines an emergency as anything that could cause major damage to a home or a resident’s wellbeing. One often overlooked example of a home emergency is a gas line leak that could result in carbon monoxide poisoning. The best safeguard against this occurrence is to properly maintain home appliances and have gas lines regularly inspected by a professional plumber.
Simple ways to prevent other common home plumbing crises are to have regular inspections conducted, know the location of all water supply lines and shut-off valves, frequently check for water leaks, use drain strainers in garbage disposals and be aware of slowly-draining sinks and bathtubs.
