Water Pipe Burst in House – What Should You Do?
When you have a burst water pipe, your first step is always to stop the water flow. In some situations, this includes simply turning off water to the area. In others, you may need help dealing with a backed up or broken sewer line. In all cases, our team, a plumber, and the water company can help you. After the water is up, let 5 Star Restoration Specialists go to work for you.
Removing the Water Itself
After a water pipe burst in a house, you may find you have water that’s not draining away. Remember, your home was built to be watertight. This keeps water out, but also can keep water in. When a pipe like this bursts, then, it is critical to ensure there’s a way to get it out. Sometimes, this means using a water pump to remove it. Our team at 5 Star Restoration Specialists can do this for you. After handling your water extraction, we can then assess the situation.
Removing Damaged Materials
When a pipe bursts, it can create a significant buildup of material in your home (dependent on the type of pipe). The water can also saturate into the walls, carpeting, and subfloor. When it does this, it may create warping and damage to those areas. We remove all damaged material that cannot be cleaned and haul it away. Sometimes – such as hard furniture and belongings in totes, can be saved with proper cleaning. We’re happy to do that for you, too.
Mold Remediation Services
The next goal is to ensure mold does not develop. If mold is already a risk in your home, we can provide complete mold restoration services. When a pipe bursts in a house, though, the water can create the risk for mold even if you clean up the water within a few hours. For this reason, our team goes to work to clean and prevent mold, too.
We’ll Work with Your Insurer, Too
Our team is licensed and insured. We are commonly called on by area home insurance providers to handle water damage from burst pipes. Most policies will cover this damage, depending on whether or not your policy limits water damage. We work directly with your agent, minimizing the complications for you and speeding up the process.
