As mentioned in a previous post, one of the best ways to prevent mold growth in your home is to lower the humidity in it. However, this can be almost impossible if you have a faulty pipe. If this is the case, follow the steps below to provide a temporary fix for your pipe, so you can avoid the need for professional water damage repair in Richmond.

How to Temporarily Fix a Leaky Pipe

Deal with the Spilled Water

For starters, put a bucket precisely beneath the leak so the water doesn't get to your floors and belongings. Then, mop and clean the water that was spilled.

Inspect the Pipe

To fix the pipe effectively, you need to know the exact place from which water is leaking. After you've identified the spot, shut down the water supply for that pipe you can work comfortably.

Prepare the Pipe

In order to mend the pipe correctly, you need to ensure that it's clean. Wipe it down with a piece of cloth to dry it off and to remove any dust buildup on it.

Fix the Pipe

To fix the pipe, spread a thick layer of epoxy putty over the affected area (read its instructions first). After you've let it dry, surround it with water resistant tape to be 100% certain that water won't leak from it. Wait a bit before reopening the water valve.

Call a Professional Team

As a last tip, remember that this will only provide a temporary fix for your pipe. If you want a permanent solution, call a team of experts that can deal with the situation effectively.
