How To Prevent Burst Pipes
Freezing temperatures are the most common reason for burst pipes. When water freezes, it expands and increase the pressure inside the pipes. The pressure will increase until the pipes burst. If you have a sprinkler system or swimming pool, drain it per the manufacturer’s instructions. Remove and store garden hoses and turn off the water valves to outdoor faucets. Check for any exposed pipes that are in attics, garages, under bathrooms and sinks and insulate them. Watch the weather during the winter months to prepare for freezing temperatures and follow local authorities safety recommendations.
Clean Pro Restoration Services
Whatever the source of the water damage, the impact on the ecology within the affected structure is important for healthy indoor conditions. Biological growth is always a great concern in the water restoration industry. Wet structure paired with favorable temperatures for microorganisms can initiate microbial amplification. The importance of a timely response to any water damage is necessary to prevent secondary damage, to stop amplification of microorganisms, and to minimize potential health effects.
Due to the level of expertise required to properly dry a structure, educated professionals should always be selected to handle any water restoration. Our Clean Pro Restoration technicians are certified and experienced in microbiology, biocide chemistry, inspection techniques, psychrometry, thermodynamics, building science, and evaporation and dehumidification theory.
