Same Day Frozen Pipe Thawing & Repair: Fast Service, When You Need It Most
Hudson Valley winters can be difficult – both for residents, and their homes. When temperatures dip below freezing for an extended period of time it can lead to various household problems, including frozen pipes.
Frozen pipes are not only an inconvenience, but can cause significant damage to your home. When pipes freeze, it prevents water from reaching its final destination – leaving you without water in a section of your home. Worst still, when water freezes it expands. Left untreated, frozen pipes will burst leading to costly repairs. Flooding and property damage caused from burst pipes can further increase the cost to remedy the situation. It is therefore critical when pipes freeze to act fast. If treated immediately, frozen pipes can often be thawed before damage to your plumbing system will occur.
Preventing Frozen Pipes
To avoid the headache and expense of frozen pipes, homeowners can take preventative measures to help minimize the risk pipes will freeze including:
- Insulating water lines, especially in places like basements, crawl spaces and attics
- Leaving your faucets running at a trickle when temperatures drop below freezing
- Leaving cabinet doors open under sinks open when temperatures drop below freezing
- If certain pipes are especially susceptible to freezing, consider installing a heating device to keep them warm
Frozen Pipe Thawing
