Why Did My Pipes Burst In My RGV Home?
Several seasons can be experienced in a day. From chilly mornings with lows in the forties to afternoons reaching into the seventies; the temperature range can be quite large. While that may become a hassle and knowing how to dress for the day it also may become a headache if your pipes burst. The wide temperature swings can cause water in your home and businesses’ pipes to freeze causing damage to your walls, basement, or attic.
To prevent your pipes from freezing during the colder months of the year SERVPRO of McAllen has a few tips . . .
- Leave a faucet running when temperatures get below freezing.
- Keep your doors, windows, and garage shut when you aren’t leaving or entering the house.
- Seal cracks or any other sort of openings that will allow cold air to seep in.
Pipes bursting may also lead to other unattended consequences impacting the structural integrity of your home or business’s foundation. Mold growth may also be possible if the water coming out of the pipe is left unattended for a substantial amount of time. Be sure to give our SERVPRO of McAllen team a call if you experience any sort of water damage.
