What Is Considered A Plumbing Emergency?
Most plumbing problems should be addressed immediately to prevent further damage to your home. Below are examples of common emergencies which should encourage you to contact a plumber in Broomfield, Longmont, Westminster, or the surrounding areas.
- Risk of flooding – Flooding caused by a burst pipe, failed sump pump, sewer backup, or water shut off valve failure should all be taken as plumbing emergencies.
- Sewer backup – A backed up sewer line creates health hazards since sewage stays at its back up point. In addition, it prevents you from using the facilities or run water, making life difficult.
- Lack of water – Without access to running water, you can’t use the facilities or cook or clean – all of which is a safety concern.
- Risk of a burst pipe – Frozen pipes or spigots can lead to a risk of flooding and lack of water. A frozen pipe not only prevents water from passing through but it also expands, increasing the chances of it cracking and causing flooding once it thaws.

The Seriousness of Burst Pipes
One of the most common types of plumbing emergencies that we encounter while servicing homes is burst pipes. Burst pipes are considered to be plumbing emergencies because they can cause a significant amount of damage in a very short amount of time, so it’s critical to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Thankfully, Craig Plumbing Heating & Cooling has the emergency repair tools and expertise that you’re looking for.
What Causes Plumbing Emergencies?
Burst pipes can be the result of many scenarios, such as:
- Unresolved clogs
- Worn-out pipes
- Homeowner damage
- Extreme weather
- Water heater failure
As water gushes from the broken area, it can quickly spread across floors, down walls and ceilings, and destroy furniture, books, and electronics. It can even lead to mold and mildew growth inside your walls, which can lead to serious health complications.
So if you experience any major leaks, it’s best to shut off your main water source. Call us right away and we can walk you through shutting your main supply off over the phone to prevent further damage. Waiting until the morning only allows the problem to become more dangerous and more expensive.
What Causes Heating & Cooling Emergencies?
Has your furnace quit on the coldest night of the year? Have you been left without cool air conditioning in the dead of summer? These emergency situations are not only inconvenient, but they can also affect your health and comfort. Fortunately, Craig Plumbing Heating & Cooling is here for you when you need us most, offering exceptional customer service and a fast emergency response to get your heating and cooling systems back up and running as soon as possible.
Emergencies with your heater or AC can arise from any of the following situations:
