PIPE BURSTING SERVICES
When you find out that your home or business has some problems with the pipes, you may start to panic. Pipes are an essential part of a plumbing structure, and their failure can result in large messes and water damage. However, with Roto-Rooter, there’s no need to worry. We offer all the repairs you may need if you experience a pipe burst, and we offer water damage restoration services to help with water removal.
Having your pipes in tip-top shape is essential when it comes to a working plumbing system. However, many problems can arise. During colder months, the chances of your pipes freezing and bursting increase. Cracks in your pipes can happen regardless of whether they’re made of plastic, copper or steel. As a result, a pipe burst can release up to 200 gallons of water in a single day and cause severe damage to your property. Luckily, Roto-Rooter offers the pipe repairs necessary to get your plumbing back in working order. When you’re faced with something as serious as a pipe burst, you’re going to want a plumber to have the most advanced equipment and experience to fix the problem. With Roto-Rooter, we’ll be able to get your home or business back to normal. Our plumbers have the abilities and knowledge necessary to address your pipe issues. We can repair damages, stop leaks or even install new pipes.
If you know your pipes are frozen, then you must take precautions to help ensure they don’t burst. You’re going to want to shut off the water main leading into the structure so the pressure on the pipes will be reduced. If the pipes are exposed and visible, take a look at them for yourself. Then, contact a plumbing professional from Roto-Rooter. We have all the equipment needed to thaw your pipes and get them back to normal flow. In addition, we can provide the repairs needed if there are any damages. Even if there has been no leaks or flooding, your pipes may still be damaged from the cold. Our Roto-Rooter plumbers will be able to examine and repair these pipes easily to prevent further pipe failure in the future.
If you learn your pipes are leaking or experience any damage, contact us immediately, and we’ll come out to your location to assess the problem. If you need something checked out, fixed or updated, you can count on Roto-Rooter to be there.
PREVENTING PIPE PROBLEMS
There are steps you can take to prevent these pipe problems from arising. When it’s the dead of winter and you’re expecting freezing temperatures, you can turn off water supply lines leading to the washer, and disconnect the hoses. Be sure to open kitchen and bathroom cabinets underneath the sinks to allow heat to circulate around the exposed pipes. In addition, if your home is cool, try adding insulation to rooms with pipes by using heat tape or thermostat-controlled heat cables.
