Know What to Do When You Have a Burst Pipe in Your Redmond Home

A broken pipe can disrupt your home in many different ways. You have to have the pipe repaired as soon as possible, as it can cause continuous damage to your property if it’s left neglected. Water can seep under floorboards, soak into carpeting, and damage cabinets. The faster you get broken pipe repair & service in Redmond, the better. At A-List Plumbing, we have many years of experience dealing with broken pipes. We have around-the-clock emergency service, so even if you have a problem in the middle of the night, we are available.

Signs You Have a Burst Pipe

If you see water pouring out from under a cabinet or other area, obviously, you have a problem. But if a pipe bursts inside the wall or under the floor, you may not notice it right away. Signs that you have water leaking out include:

  • Peeling paint
  • Loose floor tiles
  • Water spots
  • Curling vinyl

If left unattended, standing water can cause mold and mildew to develop. Then you have even more of a problem. If you think you have any water loss, don’t hesitate to call A-List Plumbing. We can trace the source and fix the problem.

Preventing Burst Pipes

Burst pipes happen most often during the winter. The pipes freeze and the water expands. There are things you can do to help prevent that from happening.

  • When the temperature drops below freezing, allow your faucet to run, especially at night, slowly.
  • Seal leaks that let cold air into areas where there are pipes.
  • Insulate your pipes
  • When you are away, and the house is cooler, open cabinet doors with pipes inside them.
  • Keep areas where there are pipes warm.
