Tips for Preventing Frozen Pipes in Eastpointe?

1/5/2022 (Permalink)

A faucet is dripping slowly. We respond to water damage emergencies in Macomb County 24-hours a day.

SERVPRO® of St. Clair Shores has been restoring water damage for the residents of Eastpointe for many years. Here are some tips from the Insurance Information Institute on what you can do to minimize the potential for frozen pipes:

  • Identify the location for the main water shutoff in your home
  • Open hot and cold faucets enough to let them drip slowly. Keeping water moving within the pipes will prevent freezing.
  • If you haven’t already, make sure all hoses are disconnected from outside spigots
  • If your garage is attached to your house, keep the garage doors closed. The door leading to the house is probably not as well-insulated as an exterior door.
  • Keep the house heated to a minimum of 65 degrees. The temperature inside the walls where the pipes are located is substantially colder than the walls themselves. A temperature lower than 65 degrees will not keep the inside walls from freezing.
  • If you have to leave your home on a trip, ask a neighbor to check the house regularly. If there is a problem with frozen pipes or water leakage, attending to it quickly could mean far less damage.
  • If you plan to be away for an extended period of time, have the water system drained by a professional to keep pipes from freezing or bursting
