pipes are a real problem. Homes, offices, and other kinds of buildings aren’t built for water to just go anywhere. When people think of “bursting pipes,” they tend to think of something dramatic: a pipe exploding as water sprays all through a room. However, it’s often something harder to notice than that. When these pipes break, leak or otherwise crack, you need experienced professionals that you can trust on the case. Here at USA Restoration, we have years of experience in helping folks to deal with bursting pipes and other kinds of water damage.
Burst Pipes Professionals
Of all the different kinds of water damage that we help with here at USA Restoration, bursting pipes are some of the most common. There are more reasons that cause pipes to burst than you might think. Often, it’s due to toilets or drains that are blocked, or otherwise backed up. Then, before you know it, they leak or burst, which leads to all kinds of water damage. Your garbage disposals can malfunction, too, potentially leading to pipe damage. Pipes can be damaged for all kinds of reasons. We’ve even seen them cracked by roots from nearby trees. No matter how your pipes were damaged, we can help you to fix them and deal with the aftermath.
Signs a Pipe has Burst
Many times, when your pipe burst, you won’t be able to notice it at first. Over time, this water can damage your flooring and walls in practically any room. Over the years, we’ve seen burst pipes cause problems in kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, offices, basements and everywhere else. Typically, one of the first signs of a burst pipe is some kind of water pooling or other visible sign of damage. Perhaps it’s a puddle in your basement. Maybe it’s some kind of watermark on your wall. Those can be a clear sign that a pipe has burst and you have to do something.
Cement is so strong; we tend to think of it as essentially invulnerable. However, a burst pipe can lead to problems for your cement, too. One very clear sign that your building has some kind of pipe leak problem is if the color of the cement has changed. Cement isn’t exactly a soft material, so for water to get in there and alter its color, something obviously has gone wrong. These are the kinds of circumstances within which you need to call someone that’s experienced in dealing with burst pipes and what they bring, like the pros here at USA Restoration.
A major reason for that is that the consequences for letting a pipe burst go are grave indeed. If you don’t fix a pipe burst quickly, it can cause an assortment of problems. Indeed, nothing good comes from waiting, neither for you or your building. All of that moisture can quickly lead to mold. Most people think that mold is something that develops over a period of time, however in regards to a pipe burst or slab leak, mold can appear in as little as 24 hours. When that occurs, it can cause structural problems for your building as well as health problems for your family.

The ways USA Restoration can help you to deal with burst pipes isn’t limited to the pipes themselves. For example, we can also help you deal with the insurance companies as well.

In fact, insurance is one more reason that you want to contact USA Restoration to help you to deal with water damage quickly. Many may not realize this, but slab leaks and the like are covered by insurance. So, even if we have to remove all of the flooring, get in there to the pipes, open up the walls and similar large renovations, it can be covered by the insurance. However, unfortunately, mold typically isn’t covered by the insurance companies. That means that if you do “let things go,” and then mold does develop, you may have to pay yourself for all of that resultant mold damage. This is, quite literally, the last thing you want to have to do. So, if you notice any potential problems with burst pipes, contact USA Restoration as quickly as possible.
In our area, many of our problems with burst pipes typically don’t come about due to the pipes having frozen. However, many times the problem with someone’s pipes is that they’re old. Pipes rust, they wear down, and over time, this can cause them to weaken. Weak pipes are the ones that are most likely to break, burst, leak and thus cause all of these problems. Should you worry that your pipes are aging or old, contact the professionals. It can be a lot less expensive than dealing with a problem later on.
All of this being said about slab leaks and burst pipes, it’s important to keep in mind that they’re far from being the only causes of water damage.
