Winter Tips to Prevent Frozen Pipes Bursting   

The temperatures have been dropping and the winter weather is here.  When the temperatures go below freezing level, your property is at risk for frozen pipes, which can create a major disaster in your home or business.

Be Prepared                     

  • Know where your water shut off is located.
  • Insulate exposed pipes, especially if they are in unheated rooms.
  • Open bathroom and kitchen cabinet doors during cold spells to allow warmer air to reach plumbing.
  • During extremely cold weather, keep a slow trickle of water flowing through faucets. 
  • Keep your heat set to the same temperature both day and night.
  • If you plan on being away for an extended period of time, leave the heat on and set the thermostat to at least 55°F.

Discovered Frozen Pipe

  • First sign of freezing is reduced water flow from a faucet.
  • Keep the faucet open when treating frozen pipes.
  • Apply heat to the frozen sections using a heating pad, hair drier, or another safe heat source. Do not use an open flame device.
  • Check additional pipes and faucets for freezing.

When a Pipe Bursts

  • Shut off the water at the main valve.
  • Call your local restoration professionals, SERVPRO® of Lincoln & Northeast Gaston Counties.
