Emergency Frozen Water Pipe Burst Service Mount Prospect
What causes pipes to freeze and why do they burst? As science has taught us, water expands when it freezes. That same principle applies inside your home’s pipes. Frozen water is being contained within metal pipes or even plastic pipes and a significant amount of pressure is being exerted on the pipes. The pressure causes the pipes to be compromised and break which leads to a messy 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 substantial amount water damage and costly cleanup expenses.
Exposed water pipes are the most susceptible to becoming frozen when it gets blisteringly cold outside during winter. 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 very little insulation.
How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing
- Open your cabinet doors to let heat from the rooms enter areas where uninsulated pipes are located.
- If you will be out of town or away for a prolonged period of time, turn off your home’s main water line.
- Try to protect your pipes by insulating any pipes that are situated against uninsulated outside walls or in unheated areas.
- Run your home’s faucets slightly 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 property’s thermostat above 55 degrees.
The best way to prevent burst pipe emergencies is to schedule regular maintenance and servicing from the reliable, professional and experienced plumbers at Capps Plumbing.
