When temperatures drop below freezing, it is very important to protect your home from the elements.
Homeowners are held liable for any damages caused by pipes freezing or even bursting. Within minutes of a pipe burst, water can travel from upstairs to downstairs, damaging the floors, walls, insulation, and structural integrity of your home.
To prevent pipes from bursting, follow these simple steps to winterize your pipes:
Step 1 – Disconnect all garden hoses.
- When water freezes inside (or bursts) a hose, it can cause serious damage not only to the hose itself, but also to the interior pipes.
