Behind The Scenes of the Plumbing and Water Damage Pros
How important is plumbing? It’ pretty important considering that there exists a World Plumbing Day, held internationally on March 11th each year and a National Plumbing Day on April 25th. But if that doesn’t convince you then here is a list of why you should consider hiring a plumber instead of letting your pipes “be as they may.”
Never Let Your Brazen Toilet Bully You
Some will say that the best place in the house is the bathroom. Most times, you are by yourself, you get to relax, and you get to release. But all the beauty of bathroom serenity is shattered if your toilet is holding a conversation with you! Hissing, bursts of air, thumping or banging, rumbling or knocking is the language that a broken toilet speaks. And maybe you don’t understand it, but we, at ASAP Plumbing Water Pros, know that this can already mean broken valves, leaking pipes, inability to flush and a high potential for toilet overflow. If you happen to have a stubborn toilet that always needs a plunger, chances are there’s a clog deep down your pipe lines that needs specific tools to break up whatever is stuck there.
If toilet problems are ignored, and the problem persists, damage is likely to occur in the form of:
Are You Wasting Tremendous Amounts Of Water?
Faucets are everywhere. They are in your bathroom at least once but many times up to 4 faucets are placed in one bathroom. They hang out in your kitchen, sometimes in your laundry room, and oftentimes outside connected to a sprinkler or water hose. The truth is, faucets are important, if not the most important, aspects of the plumbing cycle. When you need faucet repair or total faucet replacement, you need ASAP Plumbing Water Pros because we can repair or replace any faucet in a flash, all while keeping your pockets fatter than most other plumbing companies in and around Carmel, Indiana.
Leaky faucets are not just a nuisance to your ears, but they also have dramatic effects on energy conservation, not to mention the fact that they eat up your money. The EPA admonishes that, on average, annual household leaks can waste enough water to wash 270 loads of clothing! When faucets leak, the water that drips out provides a steady stream for the drain that catches it. Corrosion happens over time quite naturally, but a leaky faucet will inevitably speed up that time. You’ll be left with bigger plumbing issues and your pockets will begin to drip your money down a drain too! If wasting energy and money is your thing: stop right here. But if you want us to help you save water and money, which will not only benefit you, but the planet as well, then call us now and we’ll get money put back into your hand!
The Solution to Your Sewer Problem Is This
There are several reasons you could be in need of sewer repair or sewer maintenance. Sewers can undergo pipe corrosion, tree root infiltration, weather changes that cause the pipes to freeze, they can break, collapse or deteriorate, and this can all lead to sewer backup and overflow. Sewage spills are hazardous to our health. Sewage contains toxic waste materials that can cause serious illness and even death in those that come into contact with it. Illnesses like tetanus, Hepatitis A, Leptospirosis, E.coli, Giardia and Cryptosporidium have been commonly found in sewage water.
In order to combat the dangers of sewer overflow, it is best to contact ASAP Plumbing Water Pros immediately if you notice any problems in your sewage lines. We have certified and highly efficient contractors that will respond to the situation with the utmost of care. After all, a sewage spill is an emergent situation! With advance technologies such as video camera inspections and trenchless sewer line repair service, we can do a bang-up job without banging up your property. As a homeowner or business, it is your duty to keep the people around you safe and we are more than happy to assist you with this!
Feeling Helpless in a Water Damage Nightmare?
A part of homeownership, or owning a building, is taking on all the repairs and damages that could ever possibly happen.

It is important to have a dedicated water damage specialist who is fully licensed and insured, works with your insurance company and is available 24/7. Water damage, if left up to its regular devices, WILL begin to rot and corrode the metal structure of your home.

Proven Results of Flood Restoration and Transformation
Here, in Carmel, we know all too well about the damaging effects of floods. Floods are devastating to a town, homeowners and business owners alike. It seems like an impossible feat to bounce back from. When it comes to restoring your home or office, the project scope and steps may seem way out of reach; not for ASAP Plumbing Water Pros! We’ve toughed through some hard times but we’ve made sure that our clients came out on top. As flood restoration and water remediation specialists, we take specific steps to achieve proven results to transform your property back to its useable form. In flood restoration we:
1.)Perform extraction of water – once the storm has died down, we remove the water as quickly as possible. This lessens the chance of further damage and extrinsic hazards like fire and electrocution.
2.)Ventilate, dehumidify, dry – to prevent mold, all components and the structure must be dried thoroughly. This means all flooring, upholstery and anything of value that can be salvaged.
3.)Clean and sanitize – an antimicrobial treatment is key in this stage of the process. Mold and other contaminants will need to be handled before the area is livable again.
4.)Restoration – repairs are made after everything is clear, clean and dry. If carpets need to be replaced, this is the time to get it done. Repairs to the infrastructure of the building are also a possibility depending on the level of damage.
We are here for you in times of distress to bring back some positivity and life into your home or office. Call us today and we’ll be right over, ASAP!
Your Property Might Look Like a Mold Mosh-Pit

Don't Be Blinded By an Old, Lying Water Heater
Water heaters, when they age, get super senile. The functionality of the heating mechanism decreases and you are left with less than warm water when you shower, wash your clothes or clean your dishes. Water heaters can also contribute to scalding water and this is a major burn hazard for anyone turning on a faucet. Here are some of the ways we service your water heater and prevent water heater damage:
We are all about professional plumbing services in Carmel, IN and cleaning a clogged drain is one of our specialties! If you’ve ever let water pile up around your feet during a shower or pulled countless locks of hair from your bathroom sink, then you are aware that a clogged drain is taxing on your patience. The buildup of water leaves residue that can make any strong person queasy. This, in and of itself, is unsanitary, and thus we are here to fix it for you and ASAP!

How to Feed Your Starving Garbage Disposal
One of the easier plumbing fixes is repairing a garbage disposal. When you accidentally jam an object in the blades or overfeed the garbage disposal unit, you may hear a humming or revving sound, as opposed to the ongoing sound of blades. In other instances, the disposer is completely jammed and/or the power source is cut. Regardless of how your disposal unit stopped working, here are some DIY ways you can fix it before calling the plumbing pros:
1.Foreign Object Jam - Unplug the unit and look down the sink to see if anything is jammed. Remove any foreign object from the blades before plugging in and testing.
2.Disposer Jam – Sometimes the jam lies deep in the disposer unit. You can free the jam but locating a hexagonal hole and twisting it back and forth with an Allen key to free the clog.
3.Electrical Unit Tripped – Like with any electrical appliance, the electrical circuit may just trip. Hit the reset button at the bottom of the disposer unit. It should turn back on if the power has been tripped.
It’s possible that none of the above will work for your particular issue. That’s the time to CALL ASAP Plumbing Water Pros and we’ll come out and fix it for you same day! To save you money, we will also suggest the following tips to maintain a working disposal:
You Need To Know What Comes Next After Water Damage
Even when you notice a pool of water leaking from a pipe or appliance, there’s still time to spring into action, but don’t wait too long! We only have a 2-day window before more permanent damage sets in. Water mitigation techniques help to reduce or avoid harmful impacts altogether. It has been said that 93% of water damage cases could have been prevented. If the water is already contaminated (if it is leaking from a sewage or a storm), the likelihood of water damage elevates. Once you call us, we will ask you to take down key information before we get there. Your insurance company will need to know the source of the water, and what happened and how. We will also document the damage so that we can get everything covered for you. Many insurance companies have clauses that stated the coverage is based on your mitigation procedures. Basically, if you don’t care to try and prevent damage, your insurance company won’t care to cover any of it. This is why it is imperative to call us ASAP when you experience any type of flooding. We’ll get you the coverage you deserve!
We are highly trained in the following water mitigation areas:
24 Hour Water Extraction That Will Make You Smile
Water extraction or water removal can be accomplished by using very specific tools. Because water has the power to deteriorate metal and wood, crack tiles and flooring and ruin appliances and upholstery, you want to leave the extraction to the pros. Simply letting the water evaporate or air out will not save your home or building from pending damages in the future. ASAP Plumbing Water Pros have plumbing contractors that have been in business for years, and thus have expanded our artillery for expert water removal. Depending on the nature of the flooded area, we can use a portable flood extractor, which is as powerful as a truck-mounted extractor, a sub-surface flood extractor, which gets water from beneath the surface of flooring, and a spot lifting tool, which aids in the cleanup and restoration process. We’ve spent thousands of dollars on innovative and cutting edge technologies so that you don’t have too and so that proper and precise extraction can be made available to you.
Water removal is often the 2nd step in the process of total remediation, but it stands to be the most important phase. After our contractors perform the initial inspection, the assessed damage is then documented for our records, yours and that of your insurance company’s. Without water removal, restoration is not possible. And without correct water removal, water damage is inevitable. Call us ASAP and get the full benefits of 24 hour water removal!
Looks like a Basement Flood Brought You Here
If you’ve ever had the unfortunate event off walking downstairs to your newly remodeled basement, flipping on the switch, taking a step forward—stopping in your tracks due to the horrific sight of floating gadgets and doodads from a mysterious flood—then you probably know how important it is to hire quality water removal contractors. For timely and skilled basement water removal, trust the pros at ASAP Plumbing Water Pros!
Basements are akin to flooding because they are below ground level. Anytime there is heavy precipitation in the air (like rain or snow), water can filter into the basement. Just by very nature of the location of the basement, gravity will try and force water into the basement if there exists a crack or a hole in the edifice. This is how sewage water gets into basements. Basements are also prone to flooding because many of the drainage runs straight to the basement. Thus if there are frozen pipes due to poor insulation, or if the water heater bursts, your basement is the sole target.
There are steps you can take to combat basement flooding. First off, hire a plumber to inspect the problem areas of the basement. This will give you a sure-fire path for a solution. After that, the easy and free way is to be better to your drains and make sure your pipes are always working properly. Finally, you can install things like sump pumps and backwater valves to control surface water. Your local plumber has the right answer for you, so call us for a free inspection today!
