If you are lucky enough to be able to turn off the water at the mains as soon as a pipe bursts, then the damage will be minimal. However, life is seldom like that. It is more usual that you are only aware of a burst water pipe some time after it actually bursts – some times it can be several hours. In that time, the damage caused by the water can be considerable, and costly, and the burst pipe repair becomes a matter of some urgency.
As soon as you become aware of water damage in your home, you will need to act fast. The first thing you need to do is call a plumbing service offering a 24-hour emergency call out. The next thing you need to think about, as soon as burst water pipe repair is done, is cleaning up the mess. Water damage that is left and not properly cleaned up quickly can become a breeding ground for mold. The cleanup window is around 24 to 48 hours from when the water damage started. After that time window, mold can begin to grow rapidly and become a health hazard in the home.
You will also need to contact your home insurance company as soon as possible. You should also be aware that not all water damage may be covered by your policy. There may be a clause stating that a burst water pipe as a result of poor maintenance is not covered, for example. This is a very good reason why you should have your home water pipe system checked by an expert on a regular basis.
Your home insurance company may direct you to a particular plumbing service and recommend its services, but you should know that you do not have to use any company they might suggest. It is always best to find a plumbing service that is right for you, and it is always best to find that service before you actually need it, so there will be a minimum of delay when, or if, the worst ever happens.
