How cold is it?

4/29/2013 (Permalink)

It's so cold Eskimos are closing their windows!

It's so cold hitchhikers are holding up pictures of their thumbs!

It's so cold Richard Simmons is wearing pants!

All joking aside, it's cold out there. In fact, it's so cold out there that we here at SERVPRO of Virginia Beach thought the timing was good to remind you about the damage freezing temperatures can cause to your home or business if you aren't prepared.

Tips for Winter Property Safety:

Keep cabinet doors open during consistent cold temperatures. This allows warm air to circulate around pipes.

Keep a slow trickle of water flowing through faucets, especially if the pipes run through unheated or uninsulated areas of your home or business.

Consider shutting off outdoor faucets. Find the shut-off valve and turn it to "off."

If you do turn off outdoor faucets, be sure to open the faucet to help ensure it drains completely and the inner valve in shut off.

Ensure gutters are clean and secure. Leaves and debris accumulate, causing a damming effect on gutters, which can lead to roof problems and water damage.

Provide the proper maintenance of your furnace, this can reduce the risk of puff backs.
