When it gets cold outside, we want to stay warm inside. Nothing wrong with that. Depending on how you heat your home, your costs may be on the high side. Please, please remember that if you want to lower the heat in any area of your home to cut costs, you shouldn’t lower the temperature below 55º. For some areas you might want to keep it higher than that. Don’t allow your pipes to freeze. They need sufficient warmth to avoid bursting. The professionals at ServiceMaster Recovery by Restoration Holdings take care of water damage restoration caused by burst pipes in Green Bay and the Sturgeon Bay area.
Your interior pipes aren’t the only ones that can fail. Underground water pipes outside can burst as well. Like anything else, they only last so long.
There’s no need to fret, however. Certainly, no one can predict when a pipe will burst and cause sewage backup or flood cleanup. All you can do is to keep your home warm during the cold winter months. Perhaps you could store valuables in airtight containers where water won’t be able to reach them.
Consider insulating some of your pipes. A plumber can tell you which spots to cover in your home. If you don’t know where the water shutoff is, now would be the time to ask.
Make sure your windows are sealed properly. Take advantage of a home energy audit to help you determine where to insulate and to seal. Many times this audit is free.
When pipes burst in Green Bay, think of moping as a luxury. You really can’t afford to waste any time. The sooner you stop the flood and get professionals to clean up the water damage, the better your chances are of getting your possessions restored to their original condition.
