Tips For Homeowners To Mitigate A Burst Pipe
It’s important for homeowners to never simply allow a burst pipe to create an insurmountable amount of damage prior to our team’s arrival. So before our expert technicians arrive to your home, you should always try to do the following:
- Drain All Your Water Systems: You’re not going to want to take any chances in terms of wasting water when you experience a burst pipe, so flushing your toilets and running your faucets will help you when it comes to mitigating the amount of water that ultimately comes out of your burst pipe!
- Cleaning Up Excess Water: There can potentially be some serious hazards associated with leaving any excess water around the surrounding area of your burst pipe, so you may want to clean up a bit prior to our professionals coming to your home. This means you’ll simply want to mop up the area and clean any water that’s permeating around the damaged area. However, it’s very important that homeowners wear gloves and eyewear if the excess water appears to be contaminated in any way.
- Reach Out To Your Insurer: It will be rather important that you contact your homeowner’s insurance provider to claim your burst pipes. They’ll be able to help you in terms of providing some advice about initiating the claims process, and how repair payments will be covered/made. A lot of insurance providers will even give homeowners our contact information as a reputable source for emergency plumbing services!
- Report The Damages: It will also be really important that you adequately record all of the damages associated with your burst pipe, primarily for insurance claim purposes. The best ways to record these damages would be to take pictures and videos, but you should also make a written list as well that coincides with your footage. It will also be important that you report any type of suspected circumstances that you think may have been the root cause behind why your pipe burst.
