What to do if a frozen water pipe bursts:

 

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:
Until the burst pipe is fixed, the water main will need to remain off. 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:
When a frozen pipe burst,  a significant amount of water will travel 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.
