With fall on its way out we are moving into winter months! And with that comes freezing temperatures! One of the most common causes of water damages in the winter months is when pipes freeze. When pipes freeze they expand which causes them to burst resulting in a water damage in your home. We here at SERVPRO of North Rensselaer/ South Washington Counties are here to help you if you or your business experience a water damage from frozen pipes this winter! A water damage in your home is no fun so here are a few tips to help prevent your pipes from freezing this winter!

  1. Adjusting your thermostat- keeping your thermostat the same temperature during both the evening and day reduces risk of pipes freezing
  2. Going away- if you are leaving your home for an extended period, leave your heat on and set the temperature to 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. House Sitting- as a neighbor to check your house daily to ensure it is warm enough and pipes have not frozen.
  4. Garage- keep your garage door closed to keep cold air out!
  5. Insulation- insulate all exposed pipes properly.
  6. Faucet- Let your faucet drip, moving water is less likely to freeze!

So if your pipes freeze at your home or business and you experience a water damage please call us at 518-677-3444. We are available 24/7 365 days a year and are always happy to help!
