Causes of a Pipe Break and What Happens Next

A pipe break is one of the leading causes of water in home or water in business problems that lead to water damage. Any type of pipe can break, including those located beneath a sink and those bringing in water from the street. It's important that anyone who owns a home or business looks at the causes of a pipe break or a supply line break and what happens next in terms of restoration and mitigation.

Causes of Breaks

The most common cause of a break is a frozen line. When the temperature drops below freezing, any traces of water left in the lines can freeze. As the temperature fluctuates, the water will freeze and thaw and expand and contract at the same time. This puts so much pressure on the pipe that it can lead to a supply line break. Water cleanup professionals can assist with drying and the cleanup of any flood damage.
