2/13/2024 (Permalink)

Our local Mundelein and North Wauconda teams are leaders in water damage restoration services. Frozen pipes are a constant challenge during the freezing winter months, but there are things that can be done to prevent pipes from freezing. Here are some steps to minimize the chances of frozen pipe damage this winter:

  • Insulate: Insulate exposed pipes with foam or heat tape.
  • Seal gaps: Seal gaps and cracks in walls and around windows to prevent drafts.
  • Keep indoor temperatures up: Maintain a consistent indoor temperature, even when away.
  • Open faucets: Allow a small, steady drip from faucets during extreme cold.
  • Cabinet doors: Leave cabinet doors under sinks open to allow warm air to circulate.
  • Exterior faucets: Disconnect and drain outdoor hoses and faucets.
  • Insulate the attic: Ensure proper insulation in the attic to prevent cold air from reaching pipes.
  • Pipe insulation: Apply pipe insulation in unheated areas like basements and crawl spaces
  • Heat tape: Use heat tape for added protection on susceptible pipes.
  • Monitor weather: Stay informed about severe cold spells and take extra precautions.
