Every winter we always have a few of those days of the year where it drops down to unbelievably cold temperatures, with a wind chill sometimes in the negatives! When temperatures dip that low, it heightens the risk of frozen pipes, especially if your plumbing isn’t insulated properly. A helpful tip is to keep a small stream of water flowing from your sinks to keep the water moving, as standing water is easier to freeze than flowing water. When the water freezes, the pipes can burst. When the temperatures start to rise again, those busted pipes turn into leaking pipes very quickly!
Frozen and busted pipes can lead to flooded basements, flooded bathrooms, and flooded kitchens with potential risks to flooring damage, mold damage, and even electrical issues, depending on the location of the crack.
