Leading emergency plumbers in London, IQ Plumbing Services, warn against unskilled people attempting DIY on their own internal plumbing structure as it could lead to greater damage in the long term.

Online PR News – 03-March-2010 – – London, United Kingdom (February 26, 2010) - Leading emergency plumbers in London, IQ Plumbing Services, warn against unskilled people attempting DIY on their own internal plumbing structure as it could lead to greater damage in the long term.

The recession has seen an increase in the amount of people trying to save money by employing Do It Yourself tactics to their internal plumbing in a bid to save cash instead of calling out emergency plumbers. However, such tactics will cost people more than they bargained for in the long term, as they usually don't have the qualified plumbing expertise to isolate the plumbing problem and adequately fix it.

People trying to unblock their blocked drains may use more force than is necessary and end up cracking the pipe, causing potential flooding during a heavy downpour into other areas of the home. They will then have no choice but to call out plumbers to their house and will have to pay not only their outcall expenses, but for replacements to the areas where they have unintentionally caused damage.

"We know a lot about this subject first hand because we've had an increasing volume of calls to IQ Plumbing from people who have tried to sort out plumbing issues on their own, with often disastrous consequences," says Steve Roos of IQ Plumbing. "A real danger lies in the fact that the plumbing in certain houses can be close to electrical currents. DIY'ers could be causing a lot more problems by trying to sort out the issues themselves. It's best in the long run to contact emergency plumbers such as ourselves if you are experiencing a plumbing issue to get the problem sorted out once and for all, and to minimise the potential for any further disasters."
