If water gets in to your electrics following a plumbing emergency, then you know longer have a plumbing disaster, you have a CATASTROPHE! Blow outs, fires and all manner of seriously dangerous problems can occur as a result of not turning off the mains swiftly. So, as soon as plumbing problems occur, get to those mains sharpish.
When your plumber arrives, you want him to finish the job, and quickly. If the house is a total tip, specifically the problem area, then it will take your plumber far longer to even get to the problem, let alone fix it. By keeping problem areas tidy, you are actually saving yourself a considerable amount on the bill.
Make a note of everything that happened leading up to the emergency. It will be much easier for you and your plumber to identify the problem and what caused it. This will certainly save a huge amount of time for you if emergencies should occur, and keep that all-important bill down.
The truth is emergency plumbing problems cost considerably more than general plumbing work. So it is always worth planning maintenance or check up work in advance and save yourself some money.
