How Much Damage Can a Burst Pipe Do?
When older or frozen pipes in your water pipe installation burst or crack, gallons of water can begin to flow into your home, seeping into foundation slabs, walls, insulation, or electrical wiring.
If not treated, this problem can result in:
- Mold and mildew contamination
- Significant foundation and structural damage
- Corrosion and decay
Your property can sustain considerable damage, which could cost thousands of dollars if not handled promptly.
What to Do in Case of a Major Water Leak
Burst pipes often happen when we aren’t expecting it, and the shock can leave you not knowing what to do!
We recommend that you locate your main water valve and immediately close it—this valve is nearly always next to your main water line. This action stops the water from flowing and gives you some respite as you wait for us to arrive.
Try to clean up all affected areas as best as you can to limit the damage. Also, a cleaner space gives our plumbers the access they need to locate and carry out the repairs.
