Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Buffalo Grove
How do pipes freeze and what causes them to burst? As science shows us, water expands when it freezes. That principle still holds true when it comes to the inside your home’s pipes. Frozen water is being contained within metal pipes or even plastic pipes and causes a significant amount of pressure the pipes are forced to contain. The high pressure can cause the pipes to be compromised and break resulting in a massive plumbing problem for your home or business. Frozen kitchen pipes, frozen bathroom pipes, frozen sewer lines or any other frozen pipe can burst and leave you with a massive amount water damage and expensive cleanup costs.
Exposed water pipes are the most susceptible to freezing when it gets blisteringly cold outside during wintertime. Some of these pipes include water sprinklers or swimming pool lines, or pipes within interior areas not heated, like basements or garages, and pipes that run against walls with minimal insulation.
How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing
- Leave your cabinet doors open to let heat from the rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are situated.
- If you will be out of your house for a prolonged period of time, turn off your home’s main water line.
- Do your best to protect your pipes by insulating any pipes that are situated against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas.
- Slightly turn on your home’s faucets to allow for a small drip of water to flow.
- Apply heat tape or heat cables around pipes that are prone to freezing.
- Do not set your property’s thermostat below 55 degrees.
The best way to prevent burst pipe emergencies is to schedule regular maintenance and servicing from the dependable, knowledgeable and experienced plumbing technicians at Capps Plumbing.
