Help! The Cold Temperatures Caused My Pipes to Burst

Earlier in the week, Maryland had record low temperatures during the artic vortex. Cold temperatures would cause all the water in your home to freeze and when water freezes, it expands. Depending on the condition of the pipes in your home, they may not have been able to handle this sudden expansion of water causing them to burst. Well now what?Broken Water Main

Fortunately for you, this is a fairly easy problem to fix. Simply call a drainage specialist such as Aqua-Bright and we will help you take care of the issue and make sure mold doesn’t grow in places that were damaged.

To prevent this problem in the future it is best to do frequent routine checkups of the pipes and make sure they are working properly.

In case flooding occurs, call us to come and check it out; we will get the help you need to get your basement dry. It is also helpful to use a wet vacuum to try to remove as much of the water as possible and use fans to help dry and circulate the air. Lastly, make sure the power lines in your home are not in danger, turn off your circuit breaker and wear rubber boots while walking through the water.

Stay safe: consider incorporating outdoor lighting into your Maryland landscape to keep your home, family, and friends, well protected.
