Tips to help you manage the plumbing emergency and prevent further damage.
Shut off the water.
When you first discover a water leak, you want to immediately shut off the water to prevent any further damage. A small leak can lead to further structural damage if left untreated. If the leak is coming from the fixture, you will want to turn the shut-off valve to the faucet or toilet off.
Assess the damage.
Before calling Lee, assess the extent of the damage and determine where the leak is possibly coming from. The information you provide to us, over the phone, will give our team a good idea of the issue and make it easier for us to quickly fix the problem.
