Frozen Pipe Water Damage Restoration in Silver Spring, MD

(301) 579-8215

In Maryland, the winter occasionally brings freezing cold temperatures. This puts your property’s pipes at risk of freezing. Frozen pipes are concerning, because they are prone to bursting and causing significant water damage in your property. The water inside of the pipes turns into ice, expanding in size as it does so.

As the water expands, it places pressure on the pipes. With enough pressure, the ice forces open the pipe, spreading water throughout the nearby areas. This damage can end up costing you thousands of dollars in repair/restoration costs. With our water damage restoration services in Silver Spring, MD, Top To Bottom Renovation, Inc. can help properties that are at the site of a pipe burst and provide support with insurance claims.

We will be immediate in our response to your call for help, and we will restore the structural damage. If needed, we will install replacements for soiled building materials.

Finding Frozen Pipes

From behind walls to in your home’s attic, frozen pipes can be located in hard-to-reach places of your property.

When you encounter a burst pipe, be quick in your actions to prevent the damage from worsening. First, locate and shut off the main water switch. Then reach out to us for the water damage restoration services that we offer. Using advanced equipment, our professional technicians effectively and efficiently remove standing water and extract excess moisture from damaged building materials and the air.

 

How to Prevent Frozen Pipes

No one wants to deal with burst pipes in the winter, so you should take the time to prepare your home’s pipes for the cold. Use these steps to prevent them from freezing:

  • Using cold and hot water, turn all the faucets on in your home. Let them run just enough to release a low drip. It may not seem like much, but this water running through the pipes will help keep them from freezing.
  • Take the time to insulate water pipes that are in cold parts of your home. You can use insulation or electrical tape.
  • To keep them warm, set up a heater in the attic, basement, crawlspace, and other cold areas while it’s freezing outside.
  • Prevent water from flowing to exterior pipes by shutting off the main water exterior valve.

What to Do When Finding Frozen Pipes

When pipes are frozen, it can prevent water from running from your faucet. So if you turn on a faucet only to find water isn’t coming out, then you should check to see if the pipes have frozen. If you have frozen pipes, then you need to thaw them immediately. Use these tips to thaw them out:

  • Place an infrared lamp by the wall that is behind the pipe.
  • Remove the entire drywall and thaw the pipe using a hair dryer or heat lamp. To push out the ice, turn the water on. This will increase the water pressure inside of the pipe.
  • Turn the heat up higher in your home so the higher temperature helps thaw the pipe.

When temperatures are freezing cold outside, your home’s pipes may become frozen. If you don’t monitor and/or properly insulate your pipes, then they are prone to freezing. This can then cause them to burst and cause water damage to your property.

"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!”
