One type of water damage homeowners should be cautious of is frozen and burst pipes. Water within pipes can freeze in winter temperatures below freezing and the ice in the pipes will expand, causing the pipe to burst and leak water into the property. Water that spills from a burst pipe may rapidly cause major water damage, so acting promptly to clean up and restore the damage is important.
ServiceMaster by Replacements offers frozen pipe water damage restoration to impacted homes and businesses in Cranford, NJ. Our water damage restoration specialists will clear the water and ensure that the damaged areas are clean and dry.
How can burst pipes happen?
Frozen pipes are the most common cause of a burst pipe, especially in the frigid New Jersey winters. A pipe can also burst due to damage or wear and tear, as well as poor pipe or fitting installation.
During times of below freezing temperatures, frozen pipes are always a possibility. Pipes in uninsulated areas and within exterior walls are the most prone to freezing. When the water in a pipe freezes, it is in danger of bursting because the expansion of the ice exerts force on the pipe. When the pipe bursts, it can immediately cause a flood into the surrounding areas, resulting in significant water damage.
You can help prevent frozen pipes in your home with the following tips:
- Turn off the water supply to your home’s exterior.
- Pipe insulation or electrical tape should be used to insulate pipes in risky places.
- Allow warm air to flow around the pipes by opening cabinet doors beneath kitchen and bathroom sinks.
- When the temperature lowers, use a space heater in uninsulated places such as the attic or basement. When utilizing space heaters, make sure you take the necessary safety precautions.
- Allow your faucets to drip slowly. By keeping the water running, you may help prevent frozen pipes.
