One source of water damage that homeowners should be aware of is damage from frozen and burst pipes. When winter temperatures fall below zero, the water in pipes begins to freeze. The ice in the pipes will get bigger, which increases the risk of a pipe burst and lets water into the house. When a pipe bursts, water that overflows can quickly cause severe water damage, so it is critical to act right away to clean up and repair the damage.
Frozen pipe water damage restoration is one of the many services we offer at ServiceMaster by Replacements in Freehold, NJ. Our water damage specialists can remove the water and ensure that the affected areas are dry and clean.
How can burst pipes occur?
The most common cause of a burst pipe is frozen pipes, especially in the frigid winters of New Jersey. Damage, wear and tear, and improper pipe or fitting installation can also cause a pipe to burst.
Frozen pipes are always a possibility when temperatures drop below freezing. The most vulnerable pipes are those within exterior walls and in areas with no insulation. Due to the expansion of ice and the force exerted on the pipe, frozen pipes have a high risk of bursting. When the pipe suddenly bursts, it can immediately bring about a flood that causes significant property damage.
The following tips can lower the risk of frozen and burst pipes:
- Turn off the water supply to your home’s exterior.
- Electrical tape or pipe insulation should be used when insulating pipes in risky locations.
- Open cabinet doors beneath the sinks in the kitchen and bathroom so warm air can circulate around the pipes.
- In areas that are not insulated like the attic or basement, use a space heater when the temperature drops. Take the necessary safety precautions whenever you use space heaters.
- Turn on your faucets to a slow drip. You may be able to help prevent frozen pipes by keeping the water running.
Burst Pipe Water Mitigation
As previously stated, a burst pipe can leak a lot of water and flood your property. If a pipe bursts, you must immediately contact our professionals and turn off the water at the emergency shut-off valve.
Water damage caused by a burst pipe can be restored by our ServiceMaster by Replacements technicians. We will repair the damage that was done by using specific equipment to extract the water and dry the affected materials. The water will continue to spread and get absorbed into porous building materials and furnishings if you do not call us right away to start the restoration, which could result in structural damage and the appearance of mold.
