During cold weather, it is common to get frozen water pipes. It is obvious to spot if it is in a pipe that leads to frequently used spigots. You turn on the water and nothing comes out. Sometimes these pipes break and then when you turn on the tap, you end up with a flood of water. If it is a pipe leading to an outside spigot, you may not find it until the weather warms up and you use that particular tap to wash the car or spray off the patio. Water will start pouring into your home through light fixtures and outlets creating havoc in a few short minutes. After you get the water turned off, before you start to clean up, call Roto-Rooter, the best plumbers in Chicgo, and we will fix your broken pipe.
Cleaning Up Water
The first thing you will want to do after getting off the phone is to remove the furniture from the flooded area. If it is a nice, warm day you can take it outside, otherwise put it in the garage or another room. You will need an industrial wet/dry vacuum to suck the water from the carpet. Go over it until you cannot get any more water out of it. Then, pull the carpet back to remove the wet carpet pad and throw it away. It will have to be replaced with a new pad when the carpet is dry.
Once you have gotten all the water vacuumed out, turn up the heat in the room and put heavy-duty fans in to blow on the carpet and dry it more quickly. Getting everything dry is important if you want to avoid getting mold and mildew. Not only will it make your home smell, black mold is dangerous for you and your family’s health. It can cause allergies, asthma, and even more serious respiratory problems. If you do get mold spores in your flooring or walls, you will need to get it cleaned up properly.
