What can cause a pipe in my crawl space to burst?
Several reasons can cause a pipe burst in your crawl space, including:
- High water pressure: The optimum water pressure for most pipes in homes is 40 to 45 psi. The water pressure in your home should not exceed 60 psi. If it does, some pipes may burst.
- Corrosion: Water pipes are meant to last for an extended period. However, the pH imbalance in the water can corrode pipes leading to a burst.
- The presence of a clog – If a clog is present in a pipe, it can cause undue pressure to build up in it. When the pressure is too much for the pipe to bear, it cracks.
- Soil shifting – Water pipes can burst if the soil around them shifts. This can happen when construction activities are going on close to the pipes.
Do you have to demolish my floor to find the water source?
At SERVPRO, we utilize approved techniques and advanced equipment to locate the root cause of the leak. We can use thermal imaging cameras to see how water has traveled in the affected areas. The devices help us determine the scope of damage and the amount of work required to restore your property.
Can I leave the water to evaporate on its own?
Water seeps into various surfaces such as drywall, furniture, and textiles, especially when in excess. This can spread the damage further. As more items that are valuable become damp, the risk of developing mold and experiencing irreversible damage is high. The mold can cause health effects to residents if not treated on time. We can use wall cavity ventilating systems and dehumidifiers to dry the area thoroughly.
Property owners should not take even a small amount of water seeping into their homes lightly. Contact SERVPRO of South Miami immediately at (305) 269-8900 for professional restoration services.
