Tips to Help With A Burst Pipe

In these freezing conditions and blistering wind chills, protecting yourself from the elements is necessary for survival. Safeguarding your home should the next step in ensuring you make it through the winter. With older homes, or if temperatures dip low enough, pipes may burst and cause a multitude of headaches and repairs. A lack of running water is the most obvious danger. This can interfere with standard health conditions and be addressed immediately. When a pipe freezes it is at increased potential to burst. Once the actual water in the pipe freezes, pressure is created between the closet faucet and the blockage point.
Take these steps if a pipe bursts in your home:
  • Collect water from the leak in a bucket to prevent further damages to your floors. If the ceiling is starting to bulge, pierce the plaster in several spots to alleviate the swelling.
  • Turn off your home's water main.
  • DO NOT touch any electrical wiring or switches near the leak, even if you think they're safe. If in doubt, turn off your home's electricity temporarily.
  • If the water coming from the pipe is warm or hot, turn off your hot water valve.
  • Once you have taken these steps, call a professional plumber in your area that can ensure the pipe is repaired correctly.

The cleanup from a burst pipe can be more of a headache than when the pipe actually bursts. Luckily there are professionals that are experienced in dealing with burst pipe cleanup in Bergen County.

Flood Damage Restoration NJ

These weather fluctuations can become very damaging if you live in low elevation. When massive snow accumulation melts quickly, it can cause basements to flood if the sump pump is overworked. If your home or business has been flooded, Water Damage Restoration provides flood damage restoration in NJ to make your basement appear as new.

If your basement has flooded, here are some things that you should keep in mind for restoration services:

Hurry up. Make sure to get any water damage cleaned as soon as possible. The longer things go unchecked, there is more opportunity for rot or mold growth. If the damage worsens, it will cost more money to repair.
Take pictures. It is good to have a record of everything. You or the workers may forget something, and looking at pictures for reference will help to prevent that.
Do the math. Some possessions may be more cost-effective to replace than repair. Know what your things are appraised at. Repairs may not be worth it. Learn how much new items would cost.
