Why Burst Pipes Are So Hazardous
In addition to the extensive water damage outlined above, moisture also promotes the growth of dangerous mould and mildew in your home. Worse, this growth can occur inside your walls or other areas of your home, presenting a health risk to you and your family that you do not even realize is present. Serious respiratory and health issues can arise from inhaling these spores for years, so a professional inspection should be conducted after every flood event to ensure that your dwelling is safe to inhabit.
Likewise, water damage can severely impact your electrical system. Wires must be replaced after they get wet, forcing you to wait for an electrician before power may safely be restored to your home. The best way to avoid these complications is to contact us as soon as you suspect that our services may be necessary.
The Causes Of Burst Pipes
The most common cause of a burst pipe is a rupture caused by excessive water pressure, itself typically the result of some kind of blockage. Blockages restrict the water flow in your pipes, creating the pressure that eventually ruptures the pipe.
Human error is another common cause of burst pipes. Untrained homeowners attempting a DIY plumbing job frequently rupture their own pipes inadvertently, dramatically increasing the cost when they inevitably call a plumber to bail them out. You should always consult with a professional plumber before beginning any project that may involve pipes.
