Freezing temperatures can burst pipes and cause water damage

Posted on January 18th, 2011 No Comments

As freezing temperatures reach north Texas, it is important to be aware of the risk of bursting pipes and water damage.

Water expands when it freezes. Inside of your pipes, this expansion can put pressure on the pipes and cause them to burst. When contructing a new house, it is important to place pipes in heated places and outside of areas vunerable to freezing, and ensure that pipes are properly insulated.

In existing structures where pipes are vunerable to freezing temperatures, let your faucets drip overnight. This releases the pressure within the pipe, which will ensure the pipe does not burst even if the water inside freezes.

If your home or building has water damage caused by burst or leaky pipes, the Arlington water extraction and restoration professionals at WOW Total Cleaning can help. Contact us at 817-239-9441.
