Burst Water Pipes

1/24/2023 (Permalink)

Did you know that Wisconsin’s harsh winters and cold weather can affect your home or business in more ways than just raising your heating bill? Freezing cold temperatures can freeze the water inside your pipes, expanding the pipes, and causing them to burst open and gush water throughout your home.

The good news is that there are many helpful tips to prevent your pipes from freezing in the first place. The easiest tip to try and implement to your home, is to trickle the water in your sinks and showers, as well as running any other forms of water frequently, like washing machines and dishwashers.

Another tip is to ensure that all pipework in and around your home is adequately insulated with the appropriate insulation solution, as well as exposing pipes inside your home to the warm air dispensed through your furnace by opening cabinets under your sink.

In the event of pipes bursting, SERVPRO of Brown County is fully staffed and trained to take care of you and your home. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to give us a call at (920) 434-8224.
