Pipe Bursts

What to do if a pipe bursts in your home

If a pipe bursts in your home, the first thing you should do is turn off your water supply. Try to contain the damage and stop the issue from escalating any further. If you think there is a risk of electrical shock, shut off your electricity. The next thing you should do is call a plumber. And finally, while waiting for help to arrive, try to remove as much excess water as possible. Standing water can cause further damage to flooring and drywall. Also, you should ensure the area is dry and free from any moisture. Moisture can cause bacterial growth. 

If this happens in your home, give SERVPRO of North Knoxville a call. We will help alleviate your worries and get you back to preloss conditions. Financing options are available.
