    Tips on How to Prevent Frozen Pipes

    When the water in your Westland home freezes, it increases in volume. If the pressure of the expanding water is too much for the pipes to handle, they can burst and cause water to flood your home or business property. Even if the pipes don’t burst, it can still cause a blockage. Once the ice has melted, water can still leak into the home as the pipe may have sustained damage during the freezing and thawing process. The problem may not be as noticeable until much later, when the damage has already been done.

    Here are some tips on how to prevent frozen pipes to save yourself from costly repairs or irreversible water damage.

    • Open cabinets near sinks to let the warm air into your exposed pipes.
    • Keep the heat in your home at a reasonable level, especially if you’re going to be away for extended periods of time.
    • Wrap the exposed pipes with insulation.
    • Caulk any cracks and seal up any openings to keep out cold air drafts, particularly around plumbing fixtures which are likely to have seal problems.
    • Keep your garage door closed. Plumbing lines that run through your garage can be exposed to cold air.
    • It’s essential to know the location of your water shut off valve. In the event of an emergency, it’s important to be able to turn the water off quickly in order to prevent additional damage.
