Frozen & Burst Pipe Repair in Fairfax

24/7 Emergency Response for Leaking Pipe Repair

Leaks in your pipes may not be noticeable but they can cause serious damage to your home. In the winter, the cold temperatures outside can cause the water inside pipes to freeze and expand, causing additional water leaks or even burst pipes. When a pipe is leaking or burst, the inside of your home is exposed to water. If unresolved, a homeowner can find themselves looking at thousands of dollars in damages. Once you realize that a pipe is leaking, you need to contact a reliable Fairfax plumber to come fix the problem.

Home Service Doctors has over 20 years of experience repairing frozen and leaking pipes in Northern Virginia. Contact our veteran-owned and operated plumbing company to schedule a service or request emergency pipe repairs.

What to Do When a Pipe Bursts

Although it can be alarming to see water gushing from a broken pipe, try not to panic. Immediately locate your water shut-off valve and turn the handle to the "off" position to turn off water to your house and prevent any further damage. Find some towels to mop up as much water as you can. Once the flow of water has ceased and you've got things under control, call Home Service Doctors. A burst pipe leading to a loss of water to your home is considered a plumbing emergency, so be sure to let us know the details of your situation and we'll be there in no time to help you out. Our burst pipe repair team is prompt, courteous, and highly skilled!

Signs You May Have a Leaking Pipe

As stressful as a burst pipe can be, hidden plumbing leaks can be even more insidious and cause serious problems for your home, including structural damage, flooding, and mold. If you suspect a leaking pipe, do not delay in seeking a repair. Damage can quickly become expensive and turn into a bigger headache than if you had just consulted with a plumber.

You may have a hidden pipe leak if you have noticed the following:

  • Drips or sounds of trickling water when the water is turned off
  • Water puddles where there obviously shouldn't be any
  • Unexplained increases in your water bill
  • Seeing and/or smelly mold or mildew in certain parts of your house
Our Plumberologists work hard to make your experience as stress-free and painless as possible, offering quality solutions for your problem that fit your budget. When you call us, we can help determine the source of the leaks and provide a comprehensive repair or replacement solution to prevent leaking pipes in the future.
