Frozen Pipes Thaw Causing Heavy Water Damage
When the weather reports extremely low temperatures that are at freezing levels it is crucial to be sure your water lines are insulated. Unfortunately, with freezing temperatures there is the potential for loss of power. Once a line freezes it eventually will thaw causing water lines to rupture which in turn causes water damage.
First the home, or business with the water damage must quickly be evaluated for the safety of anyone in the home, or business. Be sure there is nothing electric in, or around the water damage to cause either an electrical fire, or electrocution. Make sure there are no ‘slip and fall’ hazards. If it is not safe, keep out and dial 911 for help. Once all is secure regarding safety precautions, shut off the water if you can.
