Frozen Pipe Water Damage Restoration in Potomac, MD

Top To Bottom Renovation, Inc.

(301) 579-8215

While freezing temperatures aren’t too common in Maryland, they do happen on occasion. If there are freezing cold temperatures outside, then your home’s pipes are prone to becoming frozen. When this happens, the water inside of the pipes freezes.

As the water turns into ice, it expands in size and places pressure on the pipe. If it places enough pressure on the pipe, then it can force it to burst open and spread water throughout the place. If this happens, then you may be left with thousands of dollars worth of damage.

Finding Frozen Pipes

When you discover that a pipe bursts in your home, then you need to turn the main water off right away. Afterward, contact us for our water damage restoration services. Our professionals will come equipped with advanced equipment that is used to efficiently extract standing water and moisture from the building structure and the air.

How to Prevent Frozen Pipes

If you take the time to prepare your pipes for cold temperatures, then you can avoid having to deal with burst pipes. To do this, follow these steps:

  • Run a low drip of water from the faucets in your home. The running water will make it harder for the pipes to freeze.
  • Use electrical tape or insulation to keep the water pipes warm if they’re located in cold areas.
  • When there are freezing temperatures outside, use a heater in your attic, crawlspace, and/or basement.
  • Open up cabinets beneath sinks to allow warm air to enter and circulate around those pipes.
  • Stop water from flowing to exterior pipes by shutting the water exterior valve off.

What to Do When Finding Frozen Pipes

If you turn on a faucet and discover that no water is coming out, then you could be dealing with a frozen pipe. That said, check the pipe. If it’s frozen, then you must thaw it immediately to prevent it from bursting and flooding. Use these tips to thaw your pipes:

  • Increase your home’s temperature.
  • Remove the drywall and use a heat lamp or blow dryer to thaw the frozen pipe. For extra help, turn the water on to increase the water pressure inside of the pipe.
  • Get an infrared lamp or space heater and set it up adjacent to the wall in front of the pipe.

When there are freezing temperatures, make sure you monitor and prepare the pipes. Otherwise, they can freeze, burst, and result in water damage.

Rating 5 5 Star Disaster Restoration Rating

"Top To Bottom is highly exceptional on every level from the quality of work to professionalism. This was my first time dealing with a flood as well as filing an insurance claim. Fred not only walked me through the process but was always available to the insurance company for their requests and visits. Unfortunately, I was out of state during the critical moments of the renovation. But, Fred went above and beyond to make a complicated situation extremely easy. His communication was thorough and consistent; and, he took the lead with other contractors to ensure that the project remained on schedule. Most importantly, I was completely at ease given the care Fred and his team took with our home. And, our kitchen looks beautiful!!! We are so fortunate to have found Top To Bottom!"

"OUTSTANDING!!! Fred and his team were professional, prompt, responsive and went way above and beyond in the services they provided. I contacted them to assist with water damage from a pipe that burst. His team handled the cleanup and water mitigation flawlessly. He always stayed in communication and responded to my calls, texts and questions. A week later I had a leak at another property and Fred was my first call. He handled the 2nd house as well and even identified additional things that needed to be addressed with the furnace, roof and mold. I'd give 6 stars if possible. ****** Call Fred. He'll get it done!"

“I can't recommend this company highly enough! Imagine getting a call in the middle of the night and being told that a pipe burst and your basement is filled ankle-high with water. That's what I was dealing with when I spoke to Fred at 4am. He immediately got a team out and they took care of the problem- getting up the water, cutting open the ceiling and the walls in several rooms. They took up the floor throughout the basement and installed heavy duty dryers. They came out everyday to assess the moisture level until everything was all dry. I was out of town while all of this was taking place, but Fred was very easy to work with and he called and/or texted me everyday! I didn't get the chance to meet him until 3 weeks later when he came by to pick up the payment. A true professional, who's company is licensed and bonded and my insurance company is very familiar with. Such a pleasure!”
