Frozen Pipe Season Is Here
We’re only a week into 2022, and we have already seen multiple large-scale water damages due to frozen pipes and burst pipes. This damage has occurred in both residential and commercial settings alike. Water damage, regardless of where or when it happens, has the potential to cause massive damage to the structure, as well as to personal or business belongings.
Protect yourself from this source of water damage by taking these simple precautions:
- Make sure that your pipes are properly insulated. If they are not, have this step done by a professional as soon as possible
- Keep the temperature in your home or office at a temperature that will prevent pipes from freezing
- Keep faucets at a very slow drip. This will ensure that the water keeps moving, which will make freezing far less likely
- Inspect your property for any air leakage that could lower the internal temperature of your home or business. Seal any leaks you find.
