How to Respond to a Burst Pipe

One of the most dreaded nightmares of a homeowner or a business owner is a burst pipe. Here in Connecticut with our cold winters, we see our fair share of them. They can be devastating, especially if the homeowner or business owner is not home or around.

Pro-Klean is based in North Haven, and we've seen our fair share of burst pipes. We offer water clean up and emergency water damage help. If you've got a burst pipe, we can ensure any water damage done is cleaned up. Below, we'll offer up steps on what to do if you experience a burst pipe in your Connecticut home or office. Give us a call for emergency restoration services today!



Shut Off the Water

This is the very first thing you should do if one of your pipes burst. Shutting off the water will prevent any more water from spilling out, and thereby prevent any more water damage as well. Every home or office complex has a main water valve that turns off all of the water into the home with a switch. Simply turn this to the off position.

Shut Down All Electrical Apparatuses in the Vicinity

The main hazard with water is if it comes into contact with anything electrical. Treated water that comes from your pipes contains additives that make water a great conductor of electricity, which means if you touch water with an electrical current surging through it, you will experience a nasty — and sometimes a fatal — zap. You will want to power down any electrical devices in the vicinity of the water, adn rubber boots will allow you to walk through the area and not get zapped.

Call a Plumber

Most of us need water for our homes in order to take a shower, flush the toilet, have drinking water, and the list goes on. Thus, you'll want to restore the water supply to your home as quickly as possible. Your local plumber will be able to diagnose and repair your broken pipe so that water flow can be restored and so that you can have peace of mind that the pipe won't break more and cause more water damage in your Connecticut home or business.

Call Your Insurance Company

Water damage and burst pipes are often covered under a homeowner's or a property owner's insurance policy. A call to your insurance company will get the insurance claim process rolling so that you can have the area to your home restored to new as quickly as possible. Pro-Klean offers home remodeling services, so we can help your home or office be as good as new. Call for a free estimate today.
