What Causes Pipe Bursts or Leaks in Chicago’s Gold Coast Homes?

  • Clogged Drain Lines – Clogs deep inside drain lines create backups that result in pipe leaks.
  • Pipe Seal Damage – Deteriorated seals around plumbing supply lines allow pipes to leak.
  • Age and Corrosion – Problems in older plumbing can result from corrosion buildup inside pipes.
  • Fluctuating Pressure – Constant pressure fluctuations hammer pipes and loosen connections.
  • Freezing Temperatures – Frozen water inside supply lines exert enormous pressure and cause burst pipes.

What Should You Do When You Have a Water Leak Emergency in Gold Coast?

1. Shut Down the Water Supply

Locate your property’s main water valve. Turn it off, and then open up all the faucets. This drains water out of the leaking or burst pipe, reducing the chances of further damage.

2. Check the Electricity

If you think the pipe leak may have compromised wiring, outlets or fixtures, shut down the electricity to affected areas. Don’t try to use appliances or electrical equipment until you’re sure of your personal safety.

Don’t take chances. If you have any doubts about the situation, call a licensed electrician.

3. Contact Your Insurance Company

Call your insurance company, and explain the situation. Let them know you’re dealing with a water damage emergency. Ask them to schedule an adjuster’s visit as soon as possible.

Leave everything in place so that the adjuster can clearly see the damages caused by the plumbing emergency.

This is the second time I've used ServiceMaster. I needed the walls and ceiling in my kitchen to be removed due to a water leak from the unit above me. They were super cautious of my furniture and covered everything with plastic. I hired them to do my reconstruction as well and am extremely happy with my new cabinets!

I had 4 inches of standing water in my basement. ServiceMaster was able to pump all the water out of the basement and cleaned and sanitized my floors and walls. I’m extremely impressed by how quick they worked and how clean they left my basement!

While we were out of town our vanity mirror fell and turned on our sink faucet. Water was running for days, we're not sure when it happened, the fire department was alerted when the house sensors got wet and set off the alarms. our neighbor came over when she saw the fire department. We were called immediately. Our agent highly recommended neil at service master. He came out with a huge team and a general manager. I felt very comfortable with him and all office staff to get the job done while we were still out of town. My neighbor checked in on them until we returned. 80% of my entire house was gutted. I have a lot of custom wall paneling, crown molding and trim. They were able to save it all. They also did my packout and duct work cleaning. Everyone at service master was extremely knowledgeable and professionaland very helpful.
