SERVPRO Frozen and Burst Pipe Cleanup

When you call SERVPRO of Westport/Fairfield after a water pipe bursts, we quickly spring into action to provide emergency burst pipe cleanup services. While every water damage cleanup is a unique situation, you can expect the following general cleanup process:

Step 1 - Emergency Contact

When you connect with a SERVPRO representative, they will ask the following questions to ensure our emergency response team is prepared once they arrive on your property:

  • When did this occur?
  • What was the source of your flooding?
  • What areas of your home have been affected by water?
  • How much standing water is currently in your home?
  • Is the water source still flowing/Have you turned off the water supply?
  • Is there any mold growth?
  • Have your filed an insurance claim?

Step 2 - Water Removal and Extraction

Once crews arrive on site, they will begin to rapidly remove any standing water in your property using commercial grade water extractors. The faster this is started, the more likely it is that building materials like carpeting, floor boards, or drywall can be saved.

Step 3 - Equipment Set Up

Commercial grade drying equipment is setup throughout your home. This may include air movers, dehumidifiers, or floor mats to ensure all affected areas are properly dried. Equipment is not removed until it has been confirmed by a moisture reading that the area is dry.

Step 4 - Demolition (As needed)

In the case of burst pipes, there is likely to be some level of demolition in your home since pipes burst behind walls or ceilings. These areas must be opened up to ensure no moisture is left behind, which could produce mold growth in your home.

Step 5 - Mold Remediation (As needed)

When it comes to water damage, mold growth is always a possibility. Mold may be present in your home if a pipe had a slow water leak before bursting or when damages are not handled right away.

  • Did you know? Mold can begin to grow in as little as 48 hours after water damage.

Step 6 - Restoration

Once your Project Manager has confirmed your property is dry and the water damage cleanup process complete, restoration can begin. Our in-house construction team can handle any needed painting, drywall replacement, carpet replacement, and more to return your home to pre-damage conditions.
