Pipe Bursting and Freezes

Pipe Bursting and Freezes

The transition of water to ice during freezing temperatures results in the expansion of water volume and often puts immense pressure within pipes, ultimately leading to their rupture. When winter’s icy grip tightens, the challenges for commercial properties multiply, with one common threat being frozen and burst pipes.

At BlueTeam, we are experts in mitigating the risks associated with frozen and burst pipes, offering tailored solutions to large portfolio owners. Our emergency response team is available round-the-clock, ensuring swift action to assess, thaw, repair, and restore your plumbing system and property.

Effects of Burst and Frozen Pipes in Commercial Spaces

When frozen pipes give way to bursts within commercial spaces, the consequences can be far-reaching and financially burdensome. 

Structural Damage

Frozen and burst pipes can wreak havoc on the structural integrity of your commercial property. As water seeps into walls, ceilings, and other building components, it weakens their foundations over time. This issue not only poses a risk to the safety of occupants but also necessitates extensive and costly structural repairs.

Ignoring this aspect can lead to more significant issues down the line and affect the entire building’s stability.

Mold Infestation

Moisture intrusion stemming from burst pipes creates an environment for mold growth. Mold infestations can escalate rapidly and have severe health implications for building occupants. Hence, addressing this consequence of burst pipes is critical.

Financial Impact

The financial repercussions of burst pipes extend beyond immediate repair costs. Water damage restoration can be an expensive endeavor, and the potential for business disruptions can further strain your finances. The longer the issue persists, the more significant the financial toll, making it essential to act swiftly.

Energy Inefficiency

An often-overlooked consequence of frozen pipes is the strain they impose on your heating systems. To counteract freezing temperatures, heating systems work tirelessly, leading to a spike in energy consumption and increased utility costs.

Moreover, prolonged exposure to freezing conditions may result in the wear and tear of heating equipment, necessitating expensive repairs or replacements.

Operational Disruption

Burst pipes can disrupt your commercial operations, leading to downtime and lost revenue. For instance, the need to shut off water supply and address the damage can slow down daily routines, inconvenience tenants, and affect your business’s reputation.

Our Services for Frozen and Burst Pipes

Emergency Response Team

Our dedicated emergency response team stands ready 24/7 to spring into action when frozen or burst pipes threaten your commercial property. Upon arrival, they begin by conducting a thorough assessment of the situation to identify the extent of the pipe damage, the location of the burst, and the potential for water intrusion.

Next, our team takes immediate steps to mitigate further issues, such as shutting off the water supply to prevent additional leakage and removing standing water.

Pipe Thawing and Repair

Thawing frozen pipes is a delicate task that requires precision and expertise. Our technicians utilize specialized equipment and safe thawing methods to restore water flow without causing damage to the pipes.

After thawing, we proceed with the necessary repairs. Our team locates the damaged sections, replaces or repairs burst pipes, and ensures the integrity of the entire plumbing system. We also insulate vulnerable areas to reduce the risk of future freezing.

Structural Restoration

When frozen and burst pipes lead to structural damage, our team steps in to address this critical aspect. We meticulously assess the structural components affected by water intrusion, such as walls, ceilings, and floors.

The restoration process involves removing damaged materials, such as drywall, insulation, and flooring. Subsequently, we employ industry-standard techniques to restore structural integrity. This may include re-framing, re-insulating, and replacing materials to bring your commercial space back to its pre-damage condition.

Mold Remediation

Our certified mold remediation specialists conduct a thorough inspection to identify mold infestations and then employ cutting-edge techniques to eliminate mold colonies.

During the process, they contain the area to prevent the spread of mold spores, remove contaminated materials, and perform a thorough cleaning and disinfection. Air quality testing is also performed to ensure your commercial space is safe for occupants.
