Busted pipe Water Damage Caused by Busted Pipe in Jacksonville, NC

A busted pipe caused this Jacksonville home to have a water damage situation. Busted pipes can happen at any time, although they mostly occur during winter months, pipes can bust or crack for several reasons, corrosion, high water pressure, or even clogs in the pipe. SERVPRO of Carteret and East Onslow Counties were on the scene immediately to extract water, fortunately this home was built on a concrete slab making it easier to extract and to possibly save the engineered hardwood flooring for use for the put back. Here are some tips for preventing busted pipes:

1. If it is extremely cold outside, always keep one or two faucets running slowly. Water moving through the system should prevent the line from freezing.

2. If purchasing a new home check pipes for leaks ahead of time.

3. Make sure tray and pipes are clean and clear on HVAC unit.
