Pipes Freeze in Virginia Beach

1/2/2019 (Permalink)

If you need a plumber this year, don’t worry…you are NOT alone. Frozen pipe season is upon us. If you live in a older home, the risk of encountering frozen pipes is increased however, it can happen to anyone because when water freezes, it expands and non-insulated pipes are more likely to burst or leak. A burst pipe can cause extraordinary damage if not handled immediately so in order to prevent pipes from freezing here are a few steps that you as a homeowner can take according to The American Red Cross:

  • Be sure to completely drain water from sprinkler lines as well as outside hoses
  • Open all of your Kitchen cabinets to let warm air circulate around the plumbing
  • Let water drip from your faucets
  • Keep your heat set to the same temperature both day and night

SERVPRO of Virginia Beach professionals are available 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. Call us if your pipe’s freeze this winter and we will make it “Like it never even happened." 757-431-1400
