What Causes Pipe Bursts?
There are several issues that can cause a pipe to burst, including improper installation and general wear and tear of the pipes. However, pipes are most likely to burst after they freeze. Water within your pipes is at risk of freezing when the outside temperatures drop and when this happens, the ice within the pipe will expand and pressure will build. The pressure from the expanding ice will eventually cause the pipe to burst and spill water into the surrounding area of your home. The amount of water that comes out of a burst pipe can cause significant structural damage and increase the risk of mold growth.
The first thing you should do when a pipe burst is shut off the water within the building. You must then call a professional to remove the excess water and restore the resulting damage.
Burst Pipe Water Damage Restoration
The water that spills out of a burst pipe is dangerous within a home or building because it gets absorbed by the surrounding furnishings and building materials. Porous materials like wood and drywall that absorb the water may experience staining, rotting, and corrosion as well as structural damage. The affected areas and materials are also at a higher risk of mold growth which can cause structural damage of its own while making the area unsafe.
At RestorationMaster, our technicians can address any level of water damage to restore your home or building. We use advanced water extraction and drying equipment to remove the excess water and dry the affected materials. We will then repair structural damage caused by the water and remove any mold growth that has appeared.
