Plumbers expect more emergency calls during holidays

AUSTIN (KXAN) – Christmas is supposed to be a happy time, but when there are problems with the installation it can get very uncomfortable very quickly.

With more and more emergency calls coming in during the holidays, plumbers like Mike Marugo and his team at ABC Home & Commercial Services are prepared for anything.

“Most of the calls we get while on vacation are related to garbage disposal,” said Marugo. “Lots of people cook a lot more.”

Drainage problems, water heater problems, and pent-up sewage are also high on the call log. Marugo says if you have a problem call a professional ASAP, but if there is an emergency with a burst pipe or if your home is flooded with water, turn off the water to your house immediately.

It can also be difficult to get certain parts with delays in the supply chain. Marugo says if you find something wrong with your plumbing, be proactive and call someone before it breaks. Some parts can take weeks to arrive.
