What Should You Do When a Pipe Bursts?

Experiencing a burst pipe can be a stressful and potentially damaging situation for any property owner. Knowing how to respond swiftly and effectively can help minimize water damage and mitigate the impact on your property.

At Plumb Shield, our expert plumbers are here to provide you with essential guidance on what to do when faced with a burst pipe emergency:

  • Shut Off the Water Supply: The first step in mitigating the damage caused by a burst pipe is to immediately shut off the water supply to your property. Find the main water shut-off valve and turn it clockwise to turn off the water. This will help prevent damage while you further  assess the situation.
  • Assess the Damage: Once the water supply has been turned off, assess the extent of the damage caused by the burst pipe. Check for standing water, dampness, or signs of water damage in affected areas such as ceilings, walls, and floors. It's essential to act quickly to remove any standing water and minimize the risk of mold growth and structural damage.
  • Contact a Professional Emergency Plumber: After assessing the damage, contact a professional plumbing service like Plumb Shield immediately. Burst pipes require prompt attention from experienced professionals to repair or replace the damaged section of the pipe effectively. Our team of skilled technicians is available 24/7 to respond to emergency situations and provide timely assistance.
  • Turn Off Electricity: If water has come into contact with electrical outlets, appliances, or wiring, exercise caution and turn off the electricity supply to the affected area. Water and electricity are a dangerous combination and can pose significant safety hazards. Only re-energize the electrical circuits once it's safe to do so, preferably after consulting with a qualified electrician.
  • Document the Damage: Before beginning any cleanup or repairs, document the damage by taking photographs or videos of the affected areas. This documentation will be valuable for insurance purposes and can help expedite the claims process.
  • Begin Cleanup and Restoration: Once the burst pipe has been repaired by our professional technicians, begin the cleanup and restoration process to return your property to its pre-damage condition. Thoroughly dry affected areas, remove damaged materials, and disinfect surfaces to prevent mold growth and maintain a healthy indoor environment.

At Plumb Shield, we understand the urgency of burst pipe emergencies and are dedicated to providing prompt, reliable service to restore your property to its original state. Trust our team to handle your burst pipe repair needs with efficiency, professionalism, and care.

What Causes Pipe Damage?

Piping systems are integral to the functionality of any property, but they are susceptible to various factors that can lead to damage over time. Understanding the common causes of pipe damage is essential for maintaining the integrity of your plumbing infrastructure. 

Here are some factors to consider:

  • Corrosion: Corrosion is one of the primary causes of pipe deterioration, particularly in older metal pipes. Factors such as exposure to chemicals in the water, soil conditions, and electrolysis can accelerate the corrosion process, leading to weakened pipes and eventual failure.
  • Freezing Temperatures: In colder climates, freezing temperatures can cause water inside pipes to expand, leading to bursts or cracks in the pipe walls. This phenomenon, known as freeze-thaw cycles, can result in significant damage to both metal and plastic pipes if proper insulation and preventative measures are not taken.
  • Water Pressure Issues: Excessive water pressure can put undue stress on pipes, leading to leaks, bursts, and other forms of damage. Conversely, low water pressure can indicate blockages or obstructions within the pipe system, which may require professional intervention to resolve.
  • Pipe Age and Material: The age and material of pipes play a significant role in their susceptibility to damage. Older pipes, particularly those made of galvanized steel or cast iron, are more prone to corrosion and deterioration over time. Upgrading to modern materials such as copper or PVC can help mitigate these issues and improve the longevity of your plumbing system.
  • Root Intrusion: Tree roots seeking moisture and nutrients can infiltrate underground pipes through small cracks or joints, causing blockages and structural damage. Regular inspection and maintenance are essential for detecting root intrusion early and preventing costly repairs.
  • Poor Installation or Maintenance: Improper installation techniques or inadequate maintenance practices can compromise the integrity of piping systems, leading to leaks, corrosion, and other forms of damage. Working with experienced professionals and adhering to recommended maintenance schedules can help mitigate these risks.

By understanding the factors that contribute to pipe damage, property owners can take proactive steps to safeguard their plumbing systems and minimize the risk of costly repairs. Whether you require repairs for existing damage or are considering upgrading to a more resilient piping solution, the experts at Plumb Shield are here to assist you every step of the way.
