Many people don’t realize it, but a burst pipe can quickly cause a significant amount of damage to your home or business. This is because water can spread quickly across floors, ceilings, and even down walls within minutes, causing damage to your home, your possessions, and even your appliances.
What Leads to Burst Pipe Emergencies?
There are a handful of reasons why your pipes may burst, but the most common culprits are blockages and the pressure they cause. When a pipe becomes clogged, the area becomes a bottleneck which causes pressure to build up in the pipe as the liquid inside struggles to pass through. Over time, as the blockage builds and the pressure within the pipe rises, your pipe will begin to leak and, eventually, will burst as a result.
Other common causes can include extreme weather, such as the wind, rain, or fluctuating temperatures, homeowner or contractor damage while landscaping or renovating, and tree roots that can infiltrate the pipes during their search for water sources.
Why Do We Consider Burst Pipes to be Emergencies?
Our technicians classify these issues as emergencies because of the extreme amount of damage that they can cause in a short amount of time. Water can quickly spread across whole sections and entire floors of your house, destroying furniture, books, and electronics, and even leading to mold and mildew within your walls, floor, and ceiling.
We know firsthand how quickly items can become damaged and destroyed, and how stressful these situations are for the homeowners.
If you are experiencing a burst pipe emergency, the first thing to do it so shut off the water supply to the affected area and stay away from any standing water which may have come into contact with electronic devices.
