Typically, when you think about nightmares, its related to monsters, killer clowns or something like that. Today, I want to share a story with you that will hopefully save you from having to experience the same real-life plumbing nightmare we had to endure.
My family lives in Northern Virginia where the winters are absolutely blistering cold. It was the middle of January and the weatherman predicted the temperature would drop down into the low teens overnight. Around 3 am, we heard a loud pop followed by the sound of rushing water.
My husband ran downstairs and checked the pipes in the crawlspace only to find the entire area was completely flooded. At the moment, our greatest fear had come true. We had forgotten to turn off the water hose line in the front and back of the house.
Our pipes were completely frozen, and the main water line pipe had become so full it burst everywhere. Needless to say, we were in a panic trying to find a local plumber that could help as fast as possible.
With little time to spare, my husband fired up the laptop and searched for a plumber in Stafford. One of the top results showed a Stafford plumbing company named Stafford Plumbing Pros, so we decided to give them a call.
Since it was after hours, we were able to get in contact with the owner (Chris). We were completely blown away by his professionalism and attention to detail. He called up a few of his plumbing team members and they arrived at our house in less than 30 minutes.
The crew from Stafford Plumbing Pros was able to stop the leak and fix the leaking pipe in just under an hour. They even had shop vacuums and other equipment necessary to help dry up all the remaining standing water. The last thing left to do was repair the damage floor and drywall. Even though this is not something they specialize in, they were able to refere us to another company that could help.
The next day they came back with industrial fans and help dry the rest of the water in the carpets. Once they were done, everything looked as if nothing had even happened.
If It were not for Stafford Plumbing Pros, we would have had to pay thousands of dollars in repair bills. If you live in the Stafford area and need an expert plumbing company. We highly recommend calling them.
