A day can change pretty quickly in a Dublin-area home when an unexpected burst pipe or damaged water line leaves a sudden mess of water all over the floor, potentially damaging woodwork, ceilings, drywall and insulation. The first thing to do is to minimize the damage and call a plumber that offers water line services to properly assess and repair it. In the meantime, here are some emergency actions to take right away:
Shut the Water Supply Off
Right away, shutting off the main valve to the house will help contain the situation and keep more water from aggravating the problem. It’s also wise to cut the electrical supply to flooded areas to limit the chances of interaction.
Drain the Remaining Water
To further cut down on the amount of water involved and remaining pressure in the lines, run the cold water out at the sinks and by flushing the toilet. Following that, turn off the water heater and run out the hot water. Dry water lines prevent further leaks and allow cleanup to begin.
Remove the Water
Once the cause is stopped, cleaning and mopping will help prevent any further flooding so damage can be assessed and repaired by a Dublin-area
