What to Do When a Pipe Bursts?
A burst pipe can occur without warning, quickly flooding rooms, and damaging property. Because of how much damage a burst pipe can cause, the first and most important thing to do is not panic. Instead, immediately locate and turn off your main water valve. Doing this will stop more water from entering your home and leaking from the burst pipe.
Once that’s done, call our team at TR Miller Heating, Cooling & Plumbing to come and fix the burst pipe. Our service areas include Naperville and elsewhere in the West Chicago Suburbs. The sooner you call us, the faster we can prevent water damage to your home.
How to Avoid Burst Pipes?
While burst pipes are unpredictable, there are steps you can take to reduce the risk of their occurrence. One of those steps is knowing what can cause a burst pipe, such as:
- Freezing temperatures.
- Severe clogs.
- Old pipes that have degraded over the years.
- Tree roots can break into pipes, clog them, and lead to damage.
- Seismic activity can shift and bend pipes.
- Accidental pipe breach during construction work.
Now that you know the causes, you can take the following preventive measures to avoid them:
- Properly insulate your plumbing system.
- Keep water constantly flowing through your pipes in winter. If warm water keeps moving through your pipes, they can’t freeze.
- Call a professional as soon as you notice reduced water pressure—it’s a sign there’s a clog.
- Undergo routine pipe inspection and cleaning.
