What Causes Pipes to Burst?
Frozen, broken, or leaky pipes are all major inconveniences that can leave homeowners completely exasperated. Ignoring these repairs can be very costly. Water damage can lead to an unstable structure as well as damage to your valuables. There are several factors that can cause pipes to burst in your Indianapolis home, including:
Winter can be the most devastating time of year for water damage. Over a quarter of a million American homes each year suffer damage due to frozen or burst pipes. Frozen, leaky pipes are common in areas of extreme winter cold and high winds that drive the wind chill well below freezing temperatures. Plumbing systems that lack proper insulation and are exposed to winter cold are far more likely to create a need for frozen pipe cleanup and restoration.
Homes that are left vacant with no heat regulation or poorly insulated walls are often to blame for frozen pipe water damage. These breaks can be hard to notice immediately because they commonly occur in the basement. Broken pipes can also cause flooding and water in your living room, bedrooms, kitchen, and bathrooms.
Over time, pipes can become damaged due to everyday wear and tear. Worn-down pipes that freeze are more likely to burst than new pipes during below-freezing temperatures. If you’ve had plumbing repair done in your home, it’s possible that another contractor could have accidentally damaged a pipe. This can also cause the pipe to wear down faster, resulting in a pipe that is more likely to burst.
