What You Can Do To Prevent Water Damage
Experiencing a burst pipe is an obvious problem but there are plenty of proactive steps you can take to reduce the potential for water damage:
In order to prevent burst pipe damage and the need for burst pipe repair, there are some steps you can take at home that will help you avoid a disaster scenario. Wherever pipes are left exposed in an unheated area such as a basement, crawlspace, or an attic, the possibility of freezing greatly increases.
To prevent that from happening, all you have to do is pack insulation material around the exposed sections of pipe, and duct-tape it into place, keeping it from falling off. We all know how cold it can get here in Boise, Idaho. You can also purchase heat tape or heat cables at your local hardware store, which can be used for the same purpose. Each of these products will come with the manufacturer’s instructions that will help you to install them correctly, maximizing their utility.
If possible, try to keep all areas heated where your water pipes pass through, and then you won’t even have to worry about freezing temperatures. It’s also a good idea to check all around the areas where your water pipes run, to make sure that there are no cracks in the wall which allow frigid air to penetrate. One of the most common types of these breaches in the wall is washer/dryer vents, which are not typically sealed off. If you should discover any such leaks, fill them in with insulation and caulking as needed.
The last precaution you can take is to have your faucet running, with the warm water turned on. The best faucet to use for this purpose is one which is mounted on an outside wall. If you happen to be planning an extended trip or vacation during the cold season, you may want to completely shut off the water, and have the pipes drained before leaving.
It may sound like a little bit of a hassle to carry out these steps, but if you ever have to undergo burst pipe cleanup operations, you’ll probably think that the precautions described above are far more preferable.
