How to Fix a Burst Pipe?
The first step in fixing a burst pipe is to find the shut off valve and shut off the water flow immediately. This will stop water from further spreading and help eliminate further damage to your property. Once you have stopped the gushing water, its best to do a little damage control and clean up the water from the affected areas with mops, cloths and whatever necessary. You may even want to use a squeegee or a wetvac to remove as much of the water as possible. It is important to dry the affected areas and use fans to help dry out the areas. It is important to have a plumbing professional do a check for things that may cause mold if the water damage was severe or contaminated areas prone to mold accumulation.
