The Danger of Burst or Leaking Pipes
Pipes can freeze for a variety of reasons, including quick drops in the temperature, poor insulation, or thermostats being set too low. A leaking or burst pipe can quickly do a lot of damage to your property. When one bursts, it can spill on average, a hundred gallons of water per hour and cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage. You must act immediately at the first sign of a problem. Even a slow leak can do damage and can eventually become a major problem.
The ServiceMaster Restore team has the tools, training, and technology needed to quickly repair your problems and get your business back to normal.
Can burst pipe cause structural damage?
Yes, burst pipes can cause structural damage. When water is allowed to accumulate in the walls or in the foundation, it can cause the structural materials to weaken, rot, and eventually collapse. If the burst pipe is left unattended for too long, the damage can be significant and costly to repair.
What pipes are most likely to burst?
Pipes that are most likely to burst are those that have been exposed to freezing temperatures, especially if they are carrying water. This is because when water freezes, it expands and exerts pressure on the pipes, which can cause them to burst. Other types of pipes that are prone to bursting include those that are corroded, poorly installed, or have too much pressure running through them.

What To Do If A Pipe Bursts In Your Building
It is essential to take action right away when there is a burst pipe. Be sure to know the locations of your water shut-off valves, electric box, and water heaters before an emergency arises. In the event of a burst pipe, shut off the water and electricity to the area of the building that has been affected. Turn on faucets and flush toilets to drain out the pipes and lessen pressure. If hot water is dripping, close the valve of the water heater and any hot water heating systems to prevent them from working while empty, as this can damage them. Move electronics and other items that could be damaged by the water and evacuate tenants until the issue is fixed. Once this is done, reach out to ServiceMaster immediately.
