Damage from Burst Pipe
Frozen pipes can be dangerous for a multitude of reasons. They can create an inconvenience but, more seriously, can cause severe damage to your home or business.
Detecting Frozen Pipes
One of the first signs of frozen pipes is a lack of running water, causing an inconvenience in performing your everyday tasks. The first step to take when you notice you may have a frozen pipe is to try to locate where the frozen pipe is situated in your home. Fortunately, if the pipe in question is easy to access, such as a pipe under a kitchen sink, you might be able to thaw the blockage using a hairdryer or a small space heater. This is the best case scenario. Unfortunately, many people do not recognize a frozen pipe in time before it becomes a burst pipe or the pipe is in an exterior wall where it may not be noticeable, which can lead to severe damage.
