Leaks, Burst Pipes and Overflows Orpington

Nothing is more frustrating than having to deal with leaky pipes in your home or business, unless of course, you consider the possibility that the pipes might have burst. The truth is, when it comes to dealing with leaks, burst pipes and overflows in Orpington, you need a company like Heat-Tec to come out and find the problem so that it can be addressed accordingly. Chances are, there is nothing that you will be able to do that will fix the problem and the longer that you wait to call someone, the worse the damage is going to be. It is also worth noting that a pipe that is simply leaking usually has a tendency to get worse. It might just be dripping right now, but if you don’t call someone right away you could find yourself in a situation where the water is flowing freely before you realize what is happening. If that isn’t enough to get your attention, it seems like these things have a way of happening at the worst possible times, usually sometime in the middle of the night. That is why it is so important that you contact us at Heat-Tec to find out what is going on and then deal with the problem.

We also know that time is of the essence, as these types of problems have to be dealt with right away in order to avoid water damage or even mold growth.

Once we see it with our own eyes, we can sit down with you and go over every step of the repair process so that you understand exactly what needs to happen in order to correct the situation. Remember, we always work with you as opposed to simply telling you what must be done. Furthermore, we will work around your schedule so that the problem can be fixed without inconveniencing you any further than what has already occurred. You are our number one priority and as our customer, we will go above and beyond in order to ensure that your needs are not only met, but exceeded.

Leaky Pipes

Sooner or later, everyone experiences a problem with a leaky pipe. The good news is that in many cases, it is a very easy problem to fix. Perhaps all it really needs is to be tightened up at the joint. They seem to have a way of working themselves loose over time so if they haven’t been checked in several years, this could easily be what is causing the problem. In addition, some of the newer pipes will sometimes experience a problem due to a fault in the material, thereby causing cracks to form on the surface of the pipe. This is also something that we can easily repair. Therefore, we can usually get in and out and a minimum amount of time and then you can get back to your daily routine without having to worry about water leaking all over the place.

Burst Pipes

If a pipe bursts, it can cause a significant amount of water damage in a very short amount of time. More often than not, this is the type of situation that happens when the weather gets cold and water freezes inside the pipes, but it can also happen as a result of other issues. If you have a pipe that has burst, you need to contact us right away. The first step will be to shut off the supply of water to that particular pipe and then make the necessary repairs. This usually involves replacing the pipe in its entirety and then checking for additional leaks once everything has been put back together.

Dealing With Pipe Overflows

The most important thing you can take away from all of this is that you don’t have to deal with these types of problems on your own. In fact, that is not recommended, as we stated earlier. It really requires the presence of a professional that can quickly diagnose the problem and then use their expertise to correct the issue. Whether you are dealing with a simple leaky pipe or you have a more significant concern, you shouldn’t hesitate to contact us because you need to address the problem before it gets any worse. Furthermore, we have a wealth of expertise and knowledge when it comes to dealing with these types of issues so we can usually figure out what the problem is very quickly after we arrive and then go to work straight away as long as that works with your schedule.


Remember, you should never allow a company that is going to perform services in your home to dictate to you what will be done and when it will be performed. Instead, you want someone that is willing to sit down with you and work with you so that you fully understand what is going on and why. We pride ourselves on doing exactly that. We enjoy making our customers lives easier and we do that by correctly fixing the problem, but we also do it by letting you know from the very beginning that we put your needs first.
