It's Cold Outside
Brrrrr. February is usually the coldest month of the year for our area. With freezing temperatures, and the possibility of snow, this increases the chances of pipes bursting inside homes and businesses. There are a few ways to keep your pipes safe during extremely cold temperatures. First, you want to make sure all of your pipes outside have been wrapped properly. This will help keep them warm when the temperature drops. Second, you want to make sure you keep a small drip coming out of the faucets in your home. Third, keep your thermostat set at or above 73° when the home is occupied, and at least 55° when the home is vacant. Lastly, you can always open up your cabinets and drawers that are around the pipes in order to allow more heat to come in. If you find that disaster has struck and your pipes have busted, do not hesitate to call SERVPRO of Cullman/Blount Counties. No job is too big or too small.
