Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Deerfield
Why do pipes freeze and what causes them to burst? As science has taught us, water expands when it freezes. That principle still holds true inside your home’s pipes. The frozen water is being contained within metal pipes or even plastic pipes and that will cause a significant amount of pressure the pipes are forced to hold. The high pressure can cause the pipes to be compromised and break resulting in an extensive 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 significant cleanups expenses.
Water pipes that are exposed are the most susceptible when it gets bitterly cold outside during winter. Some of these areas 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 very little in the way of insulation.
How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing
- Open the cabinet doors to let heat from the rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are located.
- If you will be out of your house for an extended period of time, turn off your home’s main water line.
- Try to insulate pipes that are located against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas.
- 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.
- Keep your thermostat above 55 degrees.
The best way to prevent burst pipe emergencies is to schedule regular maintenance and servicing from the dependable, highly-trained plumbing professionals at Capps Plumbing.
