It has been more than 20 years since the Northridge earthquake, and many steps have been taken to improve the protection of Southern Californians residing in the area. At Carter Services, we believe that if the proper precautions are taken before any natural disaster, the amount of damage you experience will be minimized. Our Torrance, CA plumbers are available to be your emergency plumber service, but first we would rather see you prepare your home in the event that a natural disaster does occur.


Unfortunately, you cannot prevent natural disasters from occurring. You can only plan accordingly and hope that you have protected yourself, your family and your home well enough to minimize the damage that will be incurred as a result. Before you need an emergency plumber, schedule an appointment for us to come out to your home for regular maintenance and to show you how you can minimize the damage that you experience.


Part of living in California includes learning to deal with the potential for earthquakes. It is a sacrifice that we make in order to live in this beautiful region that we call home. If your home has endured a natural disaster that requires an emergency plumber, we at Carter Services will be happy to help. If you are interested in learning how to best minimize the damage that may occur as the result of an earthquake, please schedule a time with us to perform regular maintenance on your plumbing system so we can show you how.
