Flooding Caused by Pipe Burst After a Texas Freeze?

Home Damage Austin, TX

Even in Texas, it gets cold enough for pipes to freeze at least a few times a year. If you have experienced flooding from a burst pipe(s) then time is of the essence. The pressure released from a busted pipe will flood your home or business quickly. Standing water can do an immense amount of damage in a matter of moments. The longer the water is able to sit, the more water damage it will cause. Raining Kate’s is available in the freezing cold through the dead of night. Call us anytime for emergency extraction and water damage restoration due to a busted, frozen pipe.

We work with all insurance companies. We also bill insurance direct to save you the time and hassle. No insurance? We will work with you.

Step One:
If you have not already done so, turn off the water main to the house as quickly as possible!

 

As a frozen pipe begins to thaw, it is the built up water pressure that causes the pipe to burst. The water will not stop until it is repaired so all of the water to the house will need to be turned off to stop the water.

Step Two:
Call a plumber. Call us for some great local plumber referrals!

Notes:
Flooding will not be contained until the source of the problem is fixed. Once you have turned off the main water call the plumber so that they can fix the problem.

Step Three:

Call the Flood Restoration experts at Raining Kate’s for a free inspection and estimate.

Tips:
If the damage is very minor you may be able to mop it up on your own. However, if there was a significant amount of water and it traveled through walls, over wood floors, wet carpet, or saturated ceilings it is time to call out an IICRC Certified technician to inspect the damage. A water restoration expert will extract standing water, track the water from its path to all the areas it might be hiding, and set up drying equipment to properly dry your home and prevent mildew smell and mold damage.
Raining Kate’s is always standing by for any size disaster. We know how to handle rough water. If you have experienced flooding as a result of the freeze, give us a call. You can even ask for Kate by name. You will find that she is already nearby.

Step Four:
If you have not already done so, call your insurance and start a claim.

Note:
Most policies will cover a pipe bursting in your home. We work with all insurance companies and will bill directly.
