Frozen and Burst Pipe Cleanup

When burst pipe water damage occurs in your Meriden home, time is of the essence to save building materials and your belongings. When you call SERVPRO of Meriden, our team quickly springs into action to help prevent further damages to your home.

Step 1 - Emergency Contact

One of our SERVPRO representatives will ask you the following information to ensure our team is properly prepared when they arrive on your property:

  • When did the pipe burst?
  • What areas have been affected by water?
  • How much water is there?
  • Has the water source been stopped?
  • Have you filed an insurance claim?

Step 2 - Water Cleanup

The sooner standing water is cleaned up, the higher the likelihood that building materials can be restored rather than removed. Once our team arrives on site, they quickly remove all water using commercial grade water extractors.

Step 3 - Drying Process

Commercial grade fans, dehumidifiers, and other equipment as needed is set up in affected areas to remove moisture. For burst pipe water damage, walls, floors, or ceilings may need to be partially removed to ensure all areas completely dry. Once your home is dry, the area is cleaned and treated with an antimicrobial spray to kill bacteria and prevent mold growth.

Step 4 - Restoration

Once the burst pipe cleanup process is completed, our in-house construction team takes over to replace drywall, carpeting, trim, or paint as needed.

Common Questions

Is there anything I need to do after a pipe bursts?

You should turn off the water supply as soon as possible when a pipe bursts in your home or business to stop flooding. Then, immediately call a plumber to fix the broken pipe and SERVPRO of Meriden for water damage cleanup.

Does insurance cover frozen and burst pipes?

Your homeowners insurance covers burst pipe water damage cleanup, but will not pay to repair the pipe. Your claim may be denied if your adjuster determines that the loss was due to negligence, such as not repairing a leaking pipe for years.

What's the difference between a pipe bursting and having a water leak?

The difference is that when a pipe bursts, it will be immediately evident. Water may flow from the ceiling, down walls, and all the way into your basement. In contrast, a pipe with a water leak can go unnoticed for months until it causes water stains or mold growth which draws attention to the issue.
