It's Cold Outside
February is statistically one of the coldest months of the year. With freezing temperatures, and the possibility of snow and ice, this can increase our chance of having pipes bursting inside of homes and businesses. There are many ways to keep your pipes safe during extremely cold temperatures.
- Make sure all of your pipes outside have been wrapped properly. This will help keep them "warm" when the temperature drops.
- Make sure you keep a small drip coming out of the faucets in your home.
- Keep your thermostat set at or above 73° when the home is occupied, and at least 55° when the home is vacant.
- Open up your cabinets and drawers that are around the pipes in order to allow more heat to come in.
If you find that disaster has struck and your pipes have busted, do not hesitate to call SERVPRO of Russellville, Hamilton, and Fayette!!
