Is a Burst pipe an emergency?
You may be wondering – how big of an emergency is a pipe burst? Well, that depends on where the location is of the burst pipe. A burst pipe is more urgent if the pipe is inside your home/business because it could damage the floors, walls, or the structural integrity of the foundation. Mold removal may be necessary as well if the water sits long enough. If mold becomes an issue, your health and the health of family or workers are now at risk – all from a burst pipe! Whenever a burst pipe occurs inside a home or business – Call Pride Cleaning & Restoration immediately so that we can quickly take care of the problem before it gets worse.
As opposed to indoor pipe bursts, if an outdoor pipe burst occurs – it is not that urgent of an emergency unless it is supplying your home or business with water. However, Pride recommends that any pipe that is damaged and used in transporting sewage or water be taken care of as quickly as possible. The earlier the problem gets taken care of, the less likely it is to cause harm to anything or anyone.
