BURST OR LEAKING PIPE RESTORATION

The winter months bring colder weather, and an increased chance of a costly problem - burst pipes. When temperatures plummet, water expands as it turns into ice.

WHAT CAUSES BACKUPS & WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A PIPE BURSTS?
If a pipe bursts, it will spill several hundred gallons of water per hour. It can cause you thousands of dollars in damages while increasing mold risk. As soon as you realize a pipe has burst, you need to take action by calling ServiceMaster Restore.
Locations prone to freezing pipes include outside walls, under sinks, and crawl spaces. In cold or warm climates, pipes can freeze due to quick drops in temperature, poor insulation, or thermostats that are set too low.
Signs That Your Pipes Need Repairs
If you hear strange noises coming from your pipes, such as banging, gurgling, or hissing, then it’s time to call ServiceMaster R. This could mean that there is an issue with your pipes, such as a blockage or a leak.
Low Water Pressure
If you notice that your water pressure has dropped significantly, this could be due to an issue with your pipes. It could be caused by a blockage, a leak, or corrosion.
If you notice that the water coming from your faucets has a strange color, such as yellow, orange, or brown, then this could indicate a problem with your pipes. It could be caused by a buildup of rust or sediment.
If you smell something strange coming from your pipes, then it’s likely that there’s a problem. It could be due to a buildup of bacteria or a leak in the pipes.
If you notice that there is standing water in your basement or around your pipes, then this could be a sign of a major issue.
Frozen Pipe Repair
Frozen pipe repair can be a difficult and time-consuming task, but it’s important to do it correctly to prevent further damage or a burst pipe. If you suspect a frozen pipe, the first step is to open the faucet connected to the pipe. Doing this will allow the expanding ice to break free and relieve pressure.
Pipes provide a vital barrier against both drought and flooding in your home. Unfortunately, extreme cold temperatures can cause pipes to freeze and crack, resulting in burst pipes. If you experience any of these issues with your residential plumbing system, it is imperative that you contact a professional promptly in order to avoid further damage.
