Prevent Winter Water Damage!

11/4/2021 (Permalink)

The temperature outside is starting to drop, so it is a great time to take the initiative and inspect or make changes throughout your home so that it is safe from potential winter water damage!

Firstly, it is important to take some time and check your home's water pipes to see whether or not you may need to make some changes, checking for insulation should be where you start. If your pipes have already been insulated then you're already a step ahead of the curve and your home will be safer for it.

First, it's important that you take the time to thoroughly check the water pipes situated throughout your home. It is important to figure out whether or not they are insulated so that you know if they are protected from the cold winter temps. If they already are, you are a step ahead of the curve and have much less to worry about as the cold weather moves in!

Second, if you've discovered that the piping throughout your home is not already insulated then you should take the time to look into it. Insulated pipes help prevent freezing and pipe bursts by keeping them and their contents from getting too cold.

Lastly, there are other precautionary measures that you can take to prevent potential winter water damage. By running your tap at a trickle the water in your pipes will continue to flow at a rate that makes it much harder for it to freeze and lead to a pipe burst!

By using these few tips you can help ensure that your home is protected from wintertime water damage!
