Water Damage From Frozen Pipes

Could you be dealing with water damage here in the Kansas City Metro area from frozen pipes? When water freezes, it expands, causing a huge amount of pressure to build up in all of the pipes in our homes. If a pipe bursts, the water damage needs to be dealt with quickly and the areas affected dried out. If not, over time mold can accumulate around the affected area, causing health concerns for you and your family.

Water Damage From Frozen Pipes


Preventative Steps to Keep Pipes from Freezing

1. Heat your basement. If your basement is unheated, those exposed pipes could freeze over. Set your furnace to no lower than 55 degrees.

2. Wrap pipes. Use foam insulation or heat tape that can be controlled with a thermos.

3. Fill cracks in the basement walls with sealants.

4. Disconnect and drain your outdoor hoses.

5. Seal air leaks on and around pipes.
