Restoring Service Can Hurt Water Lines in West Hollywood Homes

While many people consider their water service getting shut off as a significant inconvenience, sometimes this process is necessary to install new hardware in your West Hollywood home or to repair a damaged component of the plumbing system. The trouble with removing the water from the pipes moving through your residence is that this space now gets filled with air instead. While many experienced plumbers know to bleed out this air when refilling the lines when the job is complete, human errors happen more readily than you might think. 

To understand how air in your lines can ultimately cause water damage to your West Hollywood home, you have to imagine that this air has filled up the pipes in your home entirely. Filling it with water, causes the two to have to share the same space and pressure builds within the line at the highest points in the house. Water forces the air to the peak of the lines, and without relief to the growing pressure by turning on a faucet or fixture, can cause a separation at a weak joint. 

Our SERVPRO professionals can help you to not only identify the source of the break when we first arrive through our leak detection equipment, but we can work to mitigate your loss from the flowing water throughout this affected area of the property.  Our licensed contractors on staff can reconstruct the damaged line with new components as our other technicians set out to remove contents from the wet areas and set up equipment for efficient drying. 

Once the water is ready to get turned back on to the house after we have repaired the plumbing and mitigated the situation, we can bleed the pressure from the line as we resupply the pipes to prevent a recurrence.

Human errors and mishaps can account for many of the water damage disasters that our SERVPRO of Bel Air / West Hollywood rapid response team works to resolve. You can count on our team to be there any time you need us with the tools and expertise to make a difference quickly. Give us a call today at (310) 572-6132.
