Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Bloomingdale
What causes pipes to freeze and burst? As science has taught us, water expands as it freezes. This principle also applies to water inside a home’s pipes. If frozen water is contained within metal pipes or even plastic pipes, there’s a big exertion of pressure on the walls of the pipes. This intense pressure is what causes the pipes to be compromised and leads to breakages. This messy scenario adds up to a plumbing disaster for your property. Frozen kitchen pipes, frozen bathroom pipes, frozen sewer lines or any other frozen pipe can all burst and inundate you with water damage and expensive cleanups.
The pipes that are the most at risk to freezing are water pipes closest to outdoor conditions. This is more evident when the temperatures dip below normal during frigid winter blasts. The pipes most susceptible include water sprinklers or swimming pool lines, or pipes within interior areas not heated, such as basements or garages, and pipes that run along any walls that aren’t protected with insulation.
How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing
- Leave cabinet doors open. This will allow heat from other rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are located.
- If you’re going to be away for a longer period of time, turn off the main water line.
- When possible, insulate pipes that are located against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas.
- Let your home’s faucets to slightly run for a small flow of water.
- Use heat tape or heat cables around pipes that could be susceptible to freezing.
- Check that the property’s thermostat is set to at least 55 degrees if not warmer.
The best effective way to prevent burst pipe emergencies is to schedule regular maintenance and servicing from the dependable, professional and experienced plumbing technicians at Capps Plumbing.
