As the vibrant colors of autumn slowly transition into the icy hues of winter, it’s essential for homeowners in the Carolinas to prepare for the impending cold weather. While the region is known for its mild winters, when winter storms do strike, they can wreak havoc on older homes, especially when it comes to frozen pipes and other cold-related dangers. That’s where 24/7 Metro Restoration comes in – we’re here for you, even in the harshest of winter conditions.
The charm of old houses is undeniable, but their outdated piping systems can become a major headache when the mercury drops. North Carolina and South Carolina residents are no strangers to sudden temperature dips that can cause pipes to freeze and burst. The result? Costly damage to your property, not to mention the inconvenience and stress that comes with it.
Wrap exposed pipes with insulation to prevent them from freezing. Ensure that crawl spaces, basements, and attics are well-insulated and properly ventilated.
Allow a slight, continuous drip from your faucets during extremely cold nights to keep water flowing and prevent freezing.
Maintain a consistent indoor temperature, even when you’re away from home, to keep pipes warm.
Seal any gaps and cracks in your home’s exterior walls and foundation to prevent cold air infiltration.
Remove garden hoses from outdoor faucets and shut off the water supply to prevent freezing.
Locate and label the emergency shut-off valve for your water supply. In case of a burst pipe, you’ll be able to quickly shut off the water and minimize damage.
