The Dangers of Corroded Pipes

Corroded pipes not only pose a safety concern to building occupants, but can also contribute to lost business, lost property, and building damage. It is crucial to understand the importance of proper pipe maintenance to avoid further issues incurred by flood damage due to corroded pipes.

Pipe corrosion increases the risk of chemical and heavy metal contamination in drinking water. You can avoid these toxins by conducting an audit of your pipes. Of course, if you have noticed odd odors, leakage or impurities in output, then you will need to contact a professional plumber right away. If you can't find any clear evidence of corrosion, we suggest scheduling a technician to inspect your pipes, especially if you have experienced or noticed any of the following:

Pre-1980 pipe installation; these pipes may contain lead

Low water pressure

Leaking pipes

Changes in water bill and usage

Slow Leaks and Standing Water

Don’t wait for your drop ceiling to become discolored or a sheet of drywall to become so damp that it collapses. In these cases, standing water and slow leaks are to blame. Flooding caused by corroded sections of pipe produce slow leaks that damage building structures, property and occupant health.

Without proper flood restoration, mold can form on internal structures and impact one’s health. Standing water can even contain bacteria, chemicals and small animal debris. The process of isolating the bad pipe and replacing it can also damage walls and floors.

Flood restoration services go beyond a simple pump and clean-up. The specialists at American Restoration Water and Fire handle difficult debris and hazardous conditions so that you don’t have to. Reach out to us in your time of need!
