We’re getting into frozen pipe season! And damage to pipes can hit as quickly as the cold weather itself. Have you noticed any issues with your pipes so far with our cooling temperatures?
If you think there is some water or mold damage from your pipes, call today for us to come inspect and assess your space to make sure everything is running smoothly, and make a plan from there. However, like most things, it’s better to be proactive and take preventative steps to avoid situations altogether.
Plumbing Tips as Temperatures Fall:
- Disconnect outside water sources and make sure outdoor faucets are not dripping or leaking. Also, if your home has an interior shut-off valve, close it and drain the water from the connected outside lines.
- Consider insulating pipes in unheated areas, such as garages, if they are not already, and if they are, check the insulation routinely to ensure it is still doing its job.
- Flush out your water heater of sediment buildup and carefully test your heater’s pressure release valve.
We all hope issues in our home can be avoided, but when they can’t be, we are the team to call. CREW has 24/7 availability in emergency situations in Sioux Falls, and can even help you deal with insurance adjusters after disaster has already struck.
