Homeowners need to be prepared for emergencies and unexpected disasters. Those with kids are more likely to plan ahead and collect information on what to do, but some of the accidents and mishaps cannot be avoided. If you want to be able to deal with emergencies effectively and fast, you will need to have some phone numbers and contact details handy, so you can get help when you need it. Find out more below.

1.   Your Insurance Company

When things go wrong around the house, such as you lose hot water, or get affected by the severe weather, you will have to contact your home insurance company as soon as possible. If you have a home emergency cover, chances are that the company will send someone out within 24 hours, so you don’t have to do the legwork. In most cases, you will be provided with a 24-hour helpline, so save this number in your phone or stick it on your pinboard in the kitchen.


2.   Plumber

Small issues can cause a lot of trouble. When you have a leak in the kitchen or bathroom, or have to deal with a dripping faucet, you don’t want to spend hours trying to find a local company that can come out and sort out the issue. Check out rapidrootercharlotte.com to find out more about the services offered.  Be well prepared and save the number of a recommended company that offers emergency services. This way, you can get your life back in order without having to claim on your insurance for things that are easy to fix.


3.   Electrician

There is nothing worse than having a house full of kids and no electricity. Chances are that they will first start complaining about the loss of WiFi. And when they run out of mobile internet and phone battery charge, it will just get worse. You will only have a few hours to get the emergency sorted, or hell might break loose. A good electrician can change your fuses in just a few minutes, and your kids will be back on their online games in no time.


4.   Emergency Services

We all do our best to prevent accidents in the house, and carry out necessary repairs, but things tend to go bad sometimes. If you have an uncontrollable leak, or an electrical fire, you don’t want to wait around. Keep the number of your local emergency services handy, so you get help when you and your family are in danger.


5.   Locksmith

Kids can get up to loads of dangerous things, and one of them is locking themselves in or out. You don’t want to be looking for the number of a locksmith when your toddler is stuck in the kitchen or the bathroom. If your locks freeze or break, you don’t want to pay for the repairs once the emergency services broke it down.

Smart parents know that they need to be well prepared for emergencies. Keep these numbers in your phone, and you can deal with all the issues one at a time.
