Protect Your Pipes
Call SERVPRO of St. Cloud!
For us Minnesotan's, we live where temperatures regularly dip well below freezing. Due to this, we need to prepare ourselves from the damage that can result from frozen pipes. A couple of practical things that you can do is as follows:
Protect Pipes Before a Freeze
- Be sure to insulate all accessible pipes well before a cold snap. If you’re not sure what type of insulation to use, ask.
- Apply pipe insulation to water pipes in unheated areas of your home, such as the garage, or in areas where pipes are near exterior walls, such as under kitchen or bathroom sinks.
How to Check for Frozen Pipes (& Thaw Them)
To check on your pipes, go turn on each faucet (both hot and cold). If there’s only a trickle of water or, even worse, there’s no water coming out at all, then you should suspect a frozen pipe. The source of the freeze is most likely near an exterior wall or where the main water supply enters your home. Do this until the pipe heats up and there is a steady flow of water.
