Turn off Your Water
The moment you know a pipe burst, turn off the water supply to your home. Don’t wait until a pipe bursts to know where the main water valve in your home is! You may also need to turn off the electric supply if the water level is high enough to prevent electrical outlets from coming in contact with water.
Call a Plumber
Your first instinct may be to start removing water from the area. But call a plumber now just in case there’s wait time before he can show up. There will be time to get the water out. This is the best time to call your plumber.
Assess the Damage
How much water are you dealing with? Is it inches? More? Look especially for early signs of damage to your flooring, walls, furniture and the possibility of mold and rot. If the water has spread into crevices and corners, make sure to pay special attention so that you don’t end up with mold and water damage!
