Pipes can break any time. But cold winter seem to make the problem worse. Even the smallest pipe break can bring hundreds of gallons of water into a home or building.
Preventing Frozen Pipes
Before the onset of cold weather, prevent freezing of these water supply lines and pipes by following these recommendations:
Drain water from swimming pool and water sprinkler supply lines following manufacturer's or installer's directions. Do not put antifreeze in these lines unless directed. Antifreeze is environmentally harmful, and is dangerous to humans, pets, wildlife, and landscaping.
Remove, drain, and store hoses used outdoors. Close inside valves supplying outdoor hose bibs. Open the outside hose bibs to allow water to drain. Keep the outside valve open so that any water remaining in the pipe can expand without causing the pipe to break.
Check around the home for other areas where water supply lines are located in unheated areas. Look in the basement, crawl space, attic, garage, and under kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Both hot and cold water pipes in these areas should be insulated.
Consider installing specific products made to insulate water pipes like a "pipe sleeve" or installing UL-listed "heat tape," "heat cable," or similar materials on exposed water pipes. Newspaper can provide some degree of insulation and protection to exposed pipes - even ¼" of newspaper can provide significant protection in areas that usually do not have frequent or prolonged temperatures below freezing.
IF WATER DAMAGE OR FLOODING HAS HAPPENED
HERE ARE 5 STEPS TO TAKE:
1. Don't PANIC! A Flood in your home is a regular occurrence that can be solved.
2. Understand your wet carpet is NOT your primary concern.
Your biggest risk is mold growth within wall cavities. This dark, humid area is a breeding ground for mold, but if you act now, you'll save money and health risks.
3. Place plastic under furniture legs.
Use kitchen plastic wrap or cut other plastic to place under the legs.
4. Use CAUTION not to use any electronic appliance in standing water.
You could get electrocuted.
5. Call a professional right away.
Water problems only get worse over time and experienced professionals in DNA Fresh Carpet Care can save you LOTS of money in the long run.
