Water Damage Crisis: Water Restoration Services from Burst Frozen Pipes

Winter can bring picturesque scenes of snow-covered landscapes and cozy evenings by the fireplace. However, it can also bring about unexpected challenges, like those that come with pipes in freezing weather. The last thing you want to worry about is a burst pipe, but it’s an unfortunate side effect of the extremely cold winters we experience in New York. 

 

While there are things you can do to help prevent the likelihood of burst pipes, it is also important to know where to turn if you’re facing this issue. It’s a water damage crisis, and we’re here to help. Call the rescuers at Redeeming Restoration to take over and help with cleanup and restoration. 

 

Understanding the Problem of Frozen Pipes

 

When a pipe freezes, the ice inside causes expansion to happen. Depending on the extent of the frozen material, it may thaw out without an issue. Other times, the excess pressure building up around the frozen materials will cause the pipes to burst. It’s not necessarily just the frozen water inside, but the tremendous pressure that is accumulating behind it that causes the burst. 

 

When those pipes burst from the freezing issues, the water will release all at once with the built-up pressure. It ruptures the pipe, the walls, and leaves a disastrous watery mess in its wake. 

 

Quick – Follow These Steps Immediately! 

 

You’re going to need professional help, but you can’t wait for them to shut the water down. As soon as a burst pipe happens, you need to take action as quickly as possible. Follow these quick steps: 

 

  1. Shut off the water supply
  2. Check for electrical hazards
  3. Call the professionals
  4. Start moving items out of the water
  5. Extract excess water
  6. Document all damage
  7. Work through mitigation and restoration
