Most winters in New York are pretty cold. This winter is looking like it is going to be substantial. This includes both snow and deep freezes. Most times, when there are deep freezes, and then a high spike in temperature causes those frozen pipes to break. 

Here are some precautions you can take to try to prevent pipe breaks:

  1. Keep Water Faucets Running at a Drip
  2. Direct Warm Air To Cold Areas Of Your Home
  3. Leave Your Cabinet Doors Open
  4. Disconnect Your Hose From The Outside Faucet
  5. Seal Leaks That Allow Cold Air Into Your Home
  6. Keep the Temperatures at 65 Degrees or Above
  7. If you are Going to Be Away from the Home for a Long Time - Winterize your Home
  8. If a Pipe is Frozen - Call a Professional Plumber

SERVPRO is here to help with any water damage from a pipe burst throughout the winter months. Call us any time (845) 342-3333.
