Dealing with Burst Pipes
During the winter, there is always a risk of burst pipes as the cold temperatures cause water within the pipes to freeze and expand until the pipe gives way and bursts. Pipes are most likely to burst in the basement or attic of a home where they are often exposed. You can take preventative measures such as providing extra heat for your attic or basement and installing insulation over the pipes, but if a pipe does burst, you must react immediately to prevent extensive damage. The technicians of ServiceMaster Recovery Services by TLC can remove the water and restore the damage caused by a burst pipe. Make sure you keep an eye on your pipes during the winter to prevent them from freezing or bursting.
