Burst Pipe Damage

Damaged pipeSometimes, the biggest threat to you and your property can begin with the smallest and most silent types of events, such as a burst pipe. It is a known fact that your home’s pipelines are hidden behind your walls, above your ceilings, or under your floors; and if something goes amiss within its systems, it can be difficult to pinpoint where the problematic area is located. In most cases, homeowners will only realize that there was something wrong within their pipes when the disaster strikes.

It is impossible to turn back time. The only way to prevent your pipes from creating any more damages is to have them immediately repaired.

What Causes Your Pipes to Burst

The underlying problem that causes your home’s pipes to burst is an increase of water pressure. To understand this, try to visualize the insides of a pipe. In order for the water to freely flow, there should not be any type of obstruction blocking its passageway. However, it is almost impossible to avoid creating debris because of the weather, old habits, and other situations. When something is stuck between the pipes – be it frozen liquid, accumulated dust and dirt, or substances that do not easily deteriorate or dissolve – the water will have a difficult time exiting the pipe. If the majority of the volume of the water does not get through the barrier, it will begin to back up, build pressure, expand the pipe’s material, and then, burst.

The Dangers of Burst Pipes

Once your home’s sewage pipes have been ripped open, it can create some of the biggest damages that can occur during and after the disaster. Burst pipes can encourage indoor flooding, and may cause the following structural damages:

  • Soiled Furniture
  • Soaked Electronics
  • Wood Rotting
  • Rust
  • Mold and Mildew Buildup
  • Cracks on Floors, Walls, and Ceilings

Also, since the water is practically heading and/or coming from your sewage, you and anyone living in your buildings may acquire diseases and illnesses, because of the toxic chemicals and microorganisms that you come in contact with either through physical contact or by inhalation.
