Tips to Keep Your Pipes From Freezing

12/3/2019 (Permalink)

Winter is coming, and with it, freezing temperatures! Waking up on a freezing cold morning to having your plumbing pipes frozen is something that no one wants to experience. SERVPRO of Williamsport / Montoursville wants to give you few things that you can do to avoid a catastrophic issue in your home:

  • Make sure your pipes are well-insulated
  • Open cabinets to expose plumbing to more heat
  • Keep garage door closed to keep the cold air out
  • Let faucets drip slightly since moving water doesn't freeze as quickly
  • Ensure that any cracks or holes from the outside of the house are sealed
  • Turn up the heat!
  • Open interior doors to allow the heat to circulate
  • Seal crawl space openings
  • Apply heat tape to exposed pipes for a little extra heat

If your home or business experiences frozen pipes, call our office immediately at (570) 546-3500!
