A Pipe Burst in my Property. What Now?

Water Restoration

So, you’ve had a pipe burst this winter? Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence in the Northeast with thousands of pipes bursting every year in residential and commercial properties. This is definitely a stressful issue for anyone involved however, there are a few things you can do that could make a difference in the amount of damage an incident like this may cause.

                First things first, we need to stop the leak. This typically requires finding the water shutoff to the building and making sure it is closed fully. This will prevent the water from spreading throughout the property thus minimalizing the total amount of damage caused by the burst pipe. The next thing to do would be to get the pipe fixed. Typically, this requires a call to a plumber. If the water is clean or fresh water, you can attempt to move anything that is not yet wet away from the area to prevent it from getting damaged. The next step is to call PuroClean. The PuroClean of Auburn, Worcester County, and Metro West Area has technicians that are IICRC certified that will ensure the water damage that is both visible and hidden is restored while being respectful of your property and belongings.
