Burst Pipe in Pengilly?
When water damage happens during the winter months, it is often the result of a burst pipe. SERVPRO® of Bemidji, Grand Rapids & Hibbing, has been restoring water damage for Pengilly residents for years. Here are some helpful tips for preventing burst pipes from the Insurance Information Institute:
- Check pipes. Look closely for cracks and leaks and have the pipes repaired immediately. Wrap exposed pipes with heating tape.
- Install an emergency pressure release valve in your plumbing system. This will protect the system against increased pressure caused by freezing pipes and help prevent your pipes from bursting.
- Keep the house warm. Set the thermostat for at least 65 degrees since the temperature inside the walls, where the pipes are located, is substantially colder; a lower temperature will not keep the pipes from freezing.
- Add extra insulation to attics, basements, and crawl spaces. Ideally, the attic should be five to 10 degrees warmer than the outside air. Well-insulated basements and crawl spaces can help protect pipes from freezing. You may also consider insulating unfinished rooms such as garages to keep pipes from freezing.
