Water Damage from Burst Pipe –

Repair & Replacement in Edmonton

Burst pipes in the water system are one of the most common plumbing problems both in the public system and in your home during the winter months. There are several things which can cause a pipe to burst but the primary one is freezing conditions.

Due to the over-crowd of Edmonton city and the population boom, burst pipes have become more and more common. We have combined such complicated systems of plumbing in our homes like boilers, waste disposals, and even the garden features. The burst pipes within our home are simply the worst possible thing that could happen to our plumbing system. It is not the cost of the pipe repair or even the loss of water while being fixed, but the cost and sheer amount of the damage water can do.

What causes a pipe to burst?

As mentioned, the main cause for a pipe to burst is due to the water inside the pipe freezing in the cold temperatures. When water freezes, it expands and builds pressure within the pipe. Eventually this will cause the pipe to burst. More minor effects are cracks that will occur due to this, however, the water leaking out can cause a lot of damage and if it going on for a while, mold growth can start. Other reasons a pipe may burst are;

  • Aging
  • Damage and
  • Misuse

The pipe can be put under a great pressure through the system, and any piping fault will be exposed through time and broken down. The effects of burst pipes can be devastating and dramatic all at the same time. It can put you out of your home and even close a whole area of roads or a town for several days.

Secondary Water Damage

If the damages areas are not cleaned and dried out properly and quickly, then secondary damages can occur. Secondary damages are additional damage created from the original water damage;

  • Mold GrowthMold Growth can start within 24-48 hours after the water intrusion so it is extremely important that things are dried out quick to prevent any mold from growing.
  • Wood Rot –The longer moisture is trapped, then the wooden studs will start to get soft and deteriorate. This runs hand in hand with mold growth
  • Corrosion – As the water meet with the plumber of the home it will cause the metals to rust and eventually deteriorate. This can lead to further pipe damage and additional water damages.
  • Electrical Damage – depending on where the water comes from and how much of it, it can enter the electrical sockets and cause shortages and can even cause shocking – water and electricity.
  • Drywall & Ceiling Damage – if the water enters into a finished area of the home, it will soak right through the drywall and if it is a lot of water than those sections will have to be removed.

Natural calamities may catch us unaware. As hazardous as a calamity is, so are the repercussions that must be dealt with in the future. In most cases, when a burst pipe occurs, the water damage is too extensive for you to clean up on your own.
