What Causes Pipes to Burst?
A pipe burst can be caused by several different things from improper installation to damage or wear and tear of the pipe. The most common cause of pipe bursts, especially in cold climate areas, is frozen pipes. Pipes can freeze when cold enough conditions cause the water within the pipe to turn to ice and the ice will continue to expand, putting pressure on the pipe. The pressure will eventually cause a burst and gallons of water will spill out of the pipe and into your property. If the water damage caused by the burst is not addressed, there is a high risk of structural damage or mold growth.
Frozen Pipe Restoration
The amount of water that spills out of a burst pipe can cause considerable property damage. Porous materials like flooring, carpeting, drywall, and wood will absorb the water and allow it to spread further. The materials that take on the water can become warped and corroded and when structural materials like wood and drywall absorb too much water, your home can experience serious structural damage.
Extensive water damage is also likely to cause mold growth as mold needs a source of moisture to form. The presence of mold will make the damage worse and create a more dangerous environment. It is best to call our professionals immediately after a pipe burst to stop the spread of the water and restore the damage.
