Modern plumbing is truly a marvel of modern civilization – clean water comes in, and dirty water goes out via a series of pipes that run below and throughout any structure. However, when part of this process breaks down and a pipe bursts, you could have a costly mess to clean up, depending on the location of the pipe burst. From structural damage to a tainted water supply, it’s important to get these problems taken care of right away.
