Handling The Aftereffects Of A Busted Pipe

Plumbing issues can be super frustrating to deal with and, when you add water damage to the mixture, you’re looking at a lot of headaches down the line. Burst pipes can cause a lot of damage to your home – and fast – which is why the team at Stadler Plumbing is here to help you out! We prepare you for even the worst plumbing issues!

Turn Off Your Water!

First things first, turn off your water supply! This can prevent even more damage from occurring, and you may save yourself hundred of dollars in repairs associated with water damage. You may also want to consider turning off your electricity in that particular area of your home, depending on where the pipe has burst. Water and electronics never mix well, and this minimizes the risk of anyone getting hurt.

If water has already reached some electric circuits, do not go near the affected area. Your best bet would be to call in an experienced electrician who knows how to handle this problem in the safest way possible.

Knowing where all of your shut off valves ahead of time could save you a lot of money and stress, as well. We encourage all homeowners to locate these throughout their home, so you can quickly and easily turn off your water whenever it may be necessary.

Give Us A Call!

Next, you’ll want to get our expert team on our way to your home! Give us a call, so we can arrive as soon as possible and assess the situation. No matter the time, night or day, we’ll have someone on call, ready to help you out. If you live in Macomb, Oakland, or St. Clair County be sure to take advantage of our 24-hour service, as needed!

While You Wait…

After giving us a call, it’d be a good idea to start removing as much water as you can. Gather your towels, buckets, and mops, and start soaking things up! This prevents mold and mildew from forming while potentially saving your furniture and carpet from damage.

Preventing Frozen Pipes

If you’re ready to avoid this problem in the future, taking a few extra precautions could make all the difference. First of all, insulate the pipes that are located in colder areas of your home (such as attics, crawl spaces, and garages). You’ll also want to keep temperatures in your home above 55 degrees and, on colder days, keep cabinet doors open when pipes are hidden inside of them. It’s also a good idea to let a small trickle of water run when temperatures are especially low.

For any and all of your plumbing needs, count on the licensed team at Stadler Plumbing! We are experienced, trained, and ready to ensure the communities we serve stay safer throughout every season. We’ve got you covered, no matter what!
