Copper turns green because of a process known as oxidation which is the removal of electrons from the substance. Specifically, copper turns green because of something known as copper carbonate. However, the big question is: why does copper carbonate appear?
1.When a metal comes into contact with air or water, it undergoes environmental changes. In other words, it might rust or it might tarnish. Copper is a metal that tarnishes and turns green.
2. The plumber that worked previously on the property, did not clean the pipes correctly.
This can result in your pipes leaking or bursting.
