Protect Your Home From Pipe Bursts
Residential plumbing is durable and should help keep water and sewage out of your home, but they are not built to last forever. Especially without proper maintenance, pipe bursts can occur. When you have burst pipes, you need to take action quickly. Our technicians and plumbers at Connect Building Services can help.
Preventing pipe bursts is possible, but even if you didn’t prepare for them, we have the tools to get your plumbing back in proper order. We can guarantee timely repairs and competitive pricing compared to other Utah businesses.
Things To Do When You Experience Burst Pipes
The best thing to do when you have flooding water in your home is to call a professional and shut off the water for a short time. This will limit the amount of water damage you can experience and give experts time to get there.
If you have to wait a while for plumbers or restoration experts to arrive, there are some things you can do in the meantime.
After shutting off the water, draining your faucets will help limit water damage. Draining the remaining cold water will relieve pressure from the pipes and prevent additional areas from freezing or bursting. Draining extra water and turning off the main water source should stop all leaks until the pipes can be fixed.
If flood damage has occurred in your home, you will want to take photos before professionals start cleaning up to show proof to your insurance. Take photos from multiple angles of all possible damage. More photos will help your insurance know what they can provide for coverage.
While professional cleaners are on their way, you can do your best to soak up standing water or catch water that is dripping from ceilings. Take some towels and soak up moisture on your floors, set up fans to dry out the area, and clean up water that may have leaked under cabinets or sinks.
Keep Top Performing Plumbing By Performing Regular Maintenance
Preventing damage from burst pipes is possible with regular plumbing checkups. Connect Building Services can make sure your plumbing stays in tip-top shape and keeps your home healthy. Modern plumbing is a luxury that homeowners should be
allowed to have, but it does require a little bit of effort to keep it maintained.
Plumbing mechanisms need to be serviced, cleaned, and replaced regularly to ensure
that you don’t have water or sewer problems. Your plumbing and piping inside your home see daily consistent use, so it is no wonder that they may need some maintenance over the years.
Connect Building Services can help check your pipes for deterioration, remedy small leaks, and let you know when pipes are needing to be replaced. All of these seemingly small services can save you money down the road.
