When life without water sends you into survival mode … Burst pipes can bring on sudden disaster, or a slow, subtle leak resulting in extensive damage. Even if you take care of your home, pipes can burst for many reasons — old age, lack of protection, rust, freezing weather or a single misuse. Regardless of why it breaks, a burst pipe can cause a minor inconvenience — or if part of your main water system, require a full evacuation. Once you have had the source of the water leak repaired by a third party, Woodard will send certified professionals — whenever you need them — to assess damage and provide an appropriate water damage solution. We will work diligently to complete all water damage cleanup, dry-out, and repair services thoroughly and quickly to get your home back to normal. Why you should address burst pipes immediately If a burst pipe is merely causing a small leak, you may not be inclined to fix it right away. But the cost of replacing the broken pipe is a fraction of the cost you could incur from putting off the repair. If you wait, you could also face possible: Structural damage from the leaking water. Damage to drywall and/or mold growth from a leaky pipe in the ceiling or floor that wasn’t noticeable right away. Damage to other parts of your plumbing from a growing crack. With burst pipes, you may also want to consider Woodard’s mold removal, rug cleaning or hard surface care.
