Burst Pipes leading to Water Damage
Temperatures in Toronto during the winter months tend to fluctuate all over the place. Due to the freezing and thawing, and freezing and thawing, burst pipes are very common. They are caused by the water in the pipes freezing, which in turn, can lead to the pipe bursting. Unfortunately this can lead to major flooding in the basement or other areas of the home. Canada’s Restoration Services assists over 100 homes each winter due to burst pipes and we are the experts in dealing with water damage cleanups.
When water freezes it expands, so when it happens in a pipe, it is limited to how far it can expand. When this happens time and time again, it weakens the structure of the pipe and eventually it will burst. Whether the pipe actually bursts or if cracks are created, there will be water damage, and in most cases, A LOT. Usually so much that it is impossible for you to clean up yourself.
