Maybe it was a quiet afternoon and you were finishing up your lunch when you heard the unmistakable sound of a pipe bursting in your home. That loud pop startled you out of your comfort zone, and you began to search for the source of the noise. Realizing that you’re now dealing with a pipe burst in your home, you know that the clock is ticking before gallons of water flood your home and potentially cause thousands of dollars worth of damage. The moment a pipe bursts within your home, you need to act quickly in order to protect your home from irreparable damage. Mahon Plumbing can guide you through your next steps to take when a pipe bursts in your home.
Immediately Turn Off Your Water When a Pipe Bursts
Above all else, you’ll want to immediately turn off your water when a pipe bursts within your home. This quick act can save your household from irreparable water damage flooding your home. You will need to know where your main water shut-off valve is located. For most homes, it is located within the basement next to your water heater. It’s important to know the location of your water valve for any potential emergencies that may arise. This will provide you with quick access to your water supply valve to ensure that water will no longer freely flow from the burst pipe.
Determine Where Your Pipe Has Burst
Determining where your pipe has burst can be an easy step if you see puddles of water freely flowing within a particular room in your home. If you cannot determine where the pipe has burst, you’ll need to watch out for rooms with ceilings that appear to have water trapped inside of them. This is for your own safety. Call in a professional at Mahon Plumbing for our emergency services as soon as possible.
