With colder than normal temperatures, there is a higher risk of pipe damages. Your pipes could freeze and cause you to have significant water damages inside your home. Disaster Cleanup Services wants you to have a disaster-free Winter, so we have some tips to ensure your pipes do not freeze or burst during the colder temps.

Insulate Exposed Pipes

Pipes that do not have insulation or protection will be the first to freeze. This can cause major water and structural damages to your home. To ensure your pipes are safe, you should check that all exposed pipes have the proper insulation for the colder temperatures.

Keep Your Heat On

Even when at work or traveling, you should keep your heat turned on. You don’t have to keep it at 70 degrees, but you should leave it running. If your home’s temperatures drop too low, you will end up with frozen pipes. Even with protection, your pipes will burst in colder temperatures. Be safe and keep your heat running.

Run Water

Running water is common when temps drop very low. Running a slight trickle of warm water can ensure all your pipes remain unfrozen. This is one of the easiest ways to prevent any frozen or burst pipes.

Open Cabinets and Doors That Are Near Pipes

Keeping your cabinets and other doors open that are near your pipes. By opening doors, you are allowing the warm air to reach your pipes. This is a simple way to protect your pipes during the colder weather.

Keep Track of the Weather

Always be aware of the weather. If the temperatures in your area are dropping below normal for the year, be vigilant. Check your pipes and take the proper precautions.


If you do experience a frozen or burst pipe, do not hesitate to calla disaster cleanup company. They will be able to clean up the water damages and repair the problem.
