How To Handle A Burst Pipe and Minimize Damage

Rezul News/10509394
MADISON, Wis. - Rezul -- Burst pipes and the associated water damage are something you absolutely want to avoid as a property owner. The best way to deal with frozen or burst pipes is to prevent them in the first place – by insulating exposed water pipes, turning off the exterior water supply, and covering outdoor fixtures. If a pipe does burst, you need to act quickly to mitigate property damage and repair cost.
  • Your very first step should be to shut off your main water supply to minimize flooding – typically the most expensive damage to address.
  • Once you have shut off the water supply, make sure you identify the entire area that has been impacted by the leak. Remove as much water as possible – as quickly as possible – using a mop, sponges, towels or a wet/dry vacuum.
  • To prevent long-term damage due to moisture build-up, run a dehumidifier or fan in the affected area.
  • Contact a licensed plumber to ensure the pipe is correctly repaired before running any water to that section of the home again.
