Burst Pipe Water Cleanup Services
Restoration 1 of Evansville
When it comes to pipe leaks, a small leak should never be ignored. It’s a sure sign of a bigger disaster waiting to happen. Small leaks don’t appear to put much pressure on your pipes or water system, but a drop here or there may not be bad for your pipes, but an ongoing leak has the potential to of becoming a water damage nightmare.
There is a constant flow of water running through your pipe when you have a water leak. The constant flow of water will be chipping away at the hole in your pipe and the ongoing pressure will weaken your pipe causing it to burst. The smallest of leaks can become a water disaster nightmare over time.
Pipes can burst in cold weather?
No matter where you reside, all winter weather gets cold enough to cause water pipes to freeze in your home or business. Water expands when it freezes, and can cause your pipes to burst. Make sure your pipes are well insulated to help keep your pipes from freezing. Leaving a faucet on to trickle a constant small stream of water will keep water moving through the pipes preventing pressure buildup and keep them from freezing solid.

Broken or Leaking Pipes
Almost every homeowner will experience a leaking, broken or burst water pipe or sewer line in their lifetime. All homes contain a network of pipes that all perform water delivery or discharge functions that can leak or burst at any time regardless of the weather or where they are located.
If your water pipes leak or burst without warning, it’s critical to get them repaired or replaced before they can cause water damage to your furniture, carpeting and padding, clothes, appliances, and other property damage. By not engaging the cleanup process quickly, your items can not only get ruined, but you are inviting the growth of mold and mildew in just a short period of time. There is a serious potential for illness to set in if left unattended since bacteria thrives in this type of environment.
