Water Repair Help: Preventive Maintenance
Preventive maintenance can cut water restoration effort costs by a wide margin. Our water damage Burnaby restoration team has some tips to get you through the winter with no water damage:
- Keep it open and running. Water at a standstill will freeze easier.
- Insulated pipes can keep water from getting too cold.
- Think about providing more insulation for pipes and areas where they run.
- Areas that can be insulated are crawlspaces and subfloors.
- Indoor water pipes that run through cabinets can be kept warm by keeping them open and allowing a heater to warm them
A property of water is that it expands when frozen, so when uninsulated pipes are exposed to the cold, the water inside freezes. Thus, a blockage is created and it causes pipes to rupture, flooding your home.
Metals and other materials contract in the cold. Using hot water or having hot air circulating can expand those materials. For example, a bathtub warmed up after sitting in the cold winter can expand too fast, which may result in micro fractures that expand and let water in under the tub.
Beat water damage with knowledge. Knowing where your water shut off valve is can save you a fortune, so become familiar with where yours is. If a pipe break does occur, shutting off the water to your home is important. As it will protect your house from more damage caused by more water.
Also, recognize areas that are most at risk for pooling water. Our water damage Burnaby team suggests that during rainy times of the year keep a look out for where your water runs off. Changes can be made to ensure water does not flood the foundation of a home.
