Why Pipes Burst
Pipes burst for a number of reasons. When the temperatures drop, pipes freeze and crack open. Old pipes that have not been replaced eventually cannot withstand the pressure inside. Some pipes are faulty and burst open without cause. Whatever the reason, the water that comes from the pipes is going to be your biggest concern. Water spreads quickly which means that damage spreads quickly. The faster the water can be contained and removed, the easier the mess will be to clean and repair.
When water is allowed to pool up and sit in an area of your home or business, your property is quickly exposed to more damage and more hazards. Mold is one of the biggest problems that come from water damage. Mold grows quicky. In as little as 24-48 hours, you will be facing a mold problem as well as water damage. Not only will this take longer to remediate, but it is going to cost more.
As water sits, it also spreads. Water saturates materials it touches like flooring, carpets, walls, and more. As water expands, so does the damage. If water can be contained and dried quickly, the restoration process will go by much faster and easier. The equipment used by professional water damage restoration experts helps remove water and dry wet areas fast so that the damage is minimized and contained. Regular fans and store-bought equipment isn’t going to do what professional restoration equipment can.
