A pipe burst can sound like a relatively minor event, but anyone who has experienced one knows that the damage can be pretty significant. A pipe burst can cause a significant amount of water damage, which can threaten the structural integrity of a building and cause mold damage. The expenses associated with repairing these damages and investigating to make sure that no damage goes unnoticed can be significant.
