Got Frozen and Broken Pipes? Get a Chicago Plumber to Help You
The Plumbing Experts of Plumbers 911 Could Fix Those Pipes For You!
During winter, we have come to expect anything. It could be 40 degrees outside and sunny enough to wear shorts one day, and 30 below with no one leaving the house the next. There are no two days exactly the same. This may be an interesting thing to us, our pipes tend to not like any type of stability. Sometimes it causes the pipes within our home, or even out in our yards, to freeze and burst.
When it comes to pipes getting frozen and breaking, there are a few areas that tend to have more frozen pipes than anywhere else. The places to watch for include:
Attics or crawlspaces that are not heated or not well insulated, pipes that are located in the exterior walls of your home or business, any pipe that runs outside of your building, pipes that run through unused parts of your home or business that is not heated during winter months, any part of your home or business that may be consistently exposed to outside temperatures, and pipes located under any sink that is against an outside wall of your home or building.
Frozen pipes are not easy to find until it’s too late. Typically, the way you find out that you have frozen pipes is by having the pipe burst and you have a huge mess on your hands to clean up. That’s typically something that people do not have the time or the money to cover.
Things to Know About Broken Pipes
While you may know that the freezing of the pipe is the basis for the break, there are other things that can be done to help protect your pipes within your home or business. When you need help with pipes that tend to freeze each winter, contact an experienced Chicago plumbing contractor from the area, as they know how to protect their own pipes, so they can help you with yours, too!
You should also be inspecting your pipes regularly. If you are not sure what to look for, ask a certified plumbing contractor what you should be on the lookout for. They can come through, point out areas that are bound to be problematic, and tell you what to watch for. They can tell you the sounds frozen pipes often make before breaking, smells that are often associated with a frozen or a broken pipe, or even the changes in water flow in your home or business when a pipe breaks, and what to do if you encounter a frozen pipe. Contrary to popular belief, there are more things you can do to help your pipes than turning to your trusted hairdryer.
