When a pipe bursts and floods your home, it’s time to immediately call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for emergency help.
It’s a homeowner’s nightmare. You get home from somewhere like Crafternoon at the Dunedin library, open the door and see water. Everywhere. A pipe has burst and flooded your home.
A flood from a burst pipe is the classic example of a plumbing emergency. Your best bet is to immediately call the plumbing professionals at Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help. We’re always available.
Your next step, according to marthastewart.com, is to stem leaks if you can find them and stop the water flow if you can. Your next move, marthastewart.com says, is to “get rugs, furnishings, fabrics, and any other porous materials out of the home and into the sun … . Drying out the house, opening every window and door, running dehumidifiers and fans, getting as much air into the home as quickly as possible-that’s the most critical step.”
What you’re trying to do is prevent mold and mildew from forming. You have between 24 to 48 hours before mold and mildew form. Once they set in, you have a whole different set of problems added to your difficulties.
What, you may ask, could you have done to prevent a burst pipe and flood? Marthastewart.com suggests you have a certified plumber – like those at Billy the Sunshine Plumber – come out at least once a year to check your pipes and your appliances for leaks. You can also be aware of things like brown spots on the ceiling and walls that could indicate a hidden leak and have those fixed as soon as you spot them.
