When the weather gets nasty and temperature drops below zero, we cannot help but cringe and hope that we stay warm and that our property survives the harsh conditions. Unfortunately, if the temperature stays at a freezing temperature for an extended period time, water pipes begin to freeze. Subsequently, your faucets no longer have running water and an even bigger problem can arise.
As water freezes, it expands. The freezing ice fills up all vacant space in the pipes and even has strong enough power to burst a metal pipe. A burst pipe isn’t easily detected, as the solid ice is still present. But after the temperature rises and the ice begins to thaw, you may quickly find your property flooding and your heirlooms floating.
No one plans for a frozen pipe burst, but that doesn’t minimize severity of the situation. At this point, it is imperative to get expert help to stop the running water fast, provide the water extraction and mitigation procedures to save your property, and then to restore the property back to pre-loss condition so you can get back to your life with minimal disruption.
