Frozen Pipes Results
Wicked winter weather can cause plumbing pipes to freeze and possibly burst, causing flooding and costly water damage to your home. Taking preventive measures before winter sets in can reduce and eliminate the risk of frozen pipes and other cold weather threats. All this affected by dangerously low temperatures and sometimes by strong winds, icing, sleet and freezing rain.
SERVPRO of Pilot Mountain advises to open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing pipes. When the weather is very cold outside, let the cold water drip from the faucet served by exposed pipes. Leaks often happen if the pipe is thawed out you can also insulate all water pipes from cold moving air and keep them dry. Locate the main water shut off in case you need it.
