Don't Let The Stress Of Burst Pipes Flood Your New Year Spirit

Burst pipes during winters are common, but can cause so much stress and damage. But don't fret, your white-glove partner, NewGen Remediation, is here to take care of all your troubles. We handle fixing the pipes, getting the water out, drying and cleaning the house along with moving the affected furniture. What's more, our experts can handle the insurance claim too.

During winter, when temperatures drop below 20 degrees, your pipes become susceptible to freezing and bursting. While this mostly affects exterior plumbing, it can also occur with interior pipes in areas with little to no insulation, such as your basement, crawl space, attic, garage and kitchen cabinets. Burst pipes can cause a lot of different issues, including: 

  • Damage to furniture and flooring 
  • Damage to walls
  • Damage to electrical wiring
  • Continuous undetected water flow from a burst pipe can lead to water leaking into the foundations of your home, making the structure unstable and dangerous to reside in. 
  • Allergies or infection caused by standing water

NewGen Remediation Specialists has more than 27 years of experience providing turnkey solutions. With trained professionals at hand, we can handle any ‘burst pipe’ emergency. 

  • In case of flooding, we can move your furniture out and store it for you until the restoration work is complete. 
  • Our professionals will check your home thoroughly to ensure there are no other leaks.
  • Then, we dry out and repair any damaged flooring and walls. If mold has started to develop, we treat that too.
  • We remain with you through every step of dealing with the insurance company. Our adjusters ensure that damage to your home is accurately assessed and written up in reports to insurance companies. 
  • Once the restoration work is complete, we ensure that your house is clean, dry and safe for you and your family to move back in. We also move back any furniture or household items that were removed. 

Steps that you can take to avoid pipe bursts during winter:

With mid-January and early-February being the coldest points of winter, it helps to be prepared. Be sure to inspect your faucets, shower heads, external pipes, water supply lines underneath sinks and behind appliances. Call in a professional if you notice low water pressure, as it could be a sign of a water leak. And in the event of an emergency, be sure to call in the professionals at NewGen Remediation. We offer free consultations and our experts are always ready to help in an emergency.
