The Facts About Frozen Pipes
Cold temperatures can cause pipes to freeze. Frozen pipes are a problem because they prevent water flow, but even worse, frozen pipes can eventually burst, causing damage and potential flooding.
How do you spot frozen pipes? The first way to spot frozen pipes is frost on the pipes. This can serve as a warning sign that the pipe is frozen before you ever try to turn on the faucet. Examining the pipes under your kitchen sink and noticing frost is a sure sign that you have frozen pipes.
Another way to spot frozen pipes is that the water is not coming out of the faucet, or coming in a very small stream. When you turn on the faucet, and a slight trickle of water or no water at all comes out, the water pipe leading to the faucet may be frozen.
If you have water damage after noticing the frozen pipes give SERVPRO of LaGrange Park/North Riverside a call and we will be happy to help assist with the water damage to your home. Leaving damaged water pipes can cause more problems in the future, so give us a call to help make it "Like it never even happened."
