Why Woody Allen is Wrong When it comes to Water Damage Restoration

Published by 911 Restoration Westchester NY on March 12, 2014 in category: Water Damage Restoration

If you watch or read the news, you will be all too aware that Woody Allen is yet again in hot water facing some very serious allegations. But when it comes to the world of plumbing emergencies, some industry professionals are shaking their heads at some famous words uttered by the film director. According to Allen, “Not only is there no God, but try finding a plumber on Sunday”. This is not the appropriate forum to have religious or philosophical discussions. However, regarding the second portion of his remark, Mr. Allen clearly failed to do a Google search as there are a number of hybrid water damage restoration / plumbing professionals that operate 24/7, 365 days a year. Furthermore, any sewage backup business operating around the clock will have a number of certified plumbers on their team. Mr. Allen clearly thought very carefully about exploring the quirky sides of human behavior for such films like ‘Annie Hall’ and ‘Blue Jasmine’, but when it came to looking for a plumber; he clearly “dropped a bomb”.

Where Can I Find a Plumber that Works on Sundays?

When most people think of plumbers they envision a loveable husky gentleman bending near the toilet or under the sink exposing his “cheeky back smile”, but according to most water damage Westchester county technicians, most plumbing calls involve pipe bursts. A pipe burst can occur within your drywall, in your basement, in the kitchen or in the bathroom. In some cases a pipe burst can cause extensive damage with mounting costs if the problem is not immediately remediated. A Hinsdale, Illinois middle school suffered from a pipe burst in which 600 gallons of water flooded in and racked up a repair bill of 2.4 million dollars. Many of the charming old apartment buildings in New York have connecting plumbing and, if not properly maintained, a similar scenario happening is not out of the question. If Woody Allen ever finds himself sitting in his Manhattan penthouse eating bagels and lox on a Sunday afternoon while reading about the latest accusation filed against him and he notices a wet spot forming on his drywall, he may find himself in “hot flood water”. When it comes to industry leading water damage restoration companies, plumbers work around the clock on Sundays as if the days were Mondays. Don’t make assumptions about “industry titles” when it comes to the safety of your family, and protecting the integrity of your home. If you need a plumber on Sunday, be sure to Google “water damage restoration” or “sewage backup” for better results.

What Kind of Damage Can Pipe Bursts Cause?

A pipe burst is a serious problem. If you discover a pipe leaking or spraying water, shut off the main valve and call a water damage restoration company immediately for a certified plumber who knows pipe leaks the way Woody Allen understands irony. If a pipe leak is ignored, the pressure in the pipe can increase and result in a fully-fledged spray of water that can flood your room. Furthermore, a slow leak can cause wood rot or even mold problems to amass. Since Mr. Allen clearly gave up on finding a plumber working Sundays so quickly, he may already have a mold spot forming on his walls. But since he is an artist, the practical reaction of calling a mold remediation and water damage specialist may take second-place to his instinct to study the black mold spot like it is a card from a Rorschach test—and we can only assume that he sees Alec Baldwin winking at him.
