Frozen Pipes? Get Water Extraction and Repair Services in Stone Mountain, GA

Every homeowner’s worst dread during the winter months is frozen pipes. Worse yet, you may not be able to do much about frozen pipes, especially if they are located within your home’s walls. Here are some tips for avoiding frozen pipes in your house or company, as well as what to do if you do have them.

Common Causes of Water Damage

Frozen Pipe Prevention

There are some ways to prevent pipes from freezing before the temperature drops dramatically.

How to Deal With Frozen Pipes?

In case freezing has not been prevented ahead of time, here’s what a homeowner should do.

Open flames should not be used to heat the pipe. If the ice cannot be thawed or if the frozen area is not accessible, call a licensed plumber to inspect it.

A garden hose can be pushed through the pipe if it is large enough and accessible. After that, carefully pour hot water through the garden hose until the ice melts. When the garden hose is overfilled, the hot water can back up on your end, causing a problem.
