Ho-Ho-Kus Frozen & Burst Pipe Damage
The winter months bring certain property maintenance concerns that all NJ homeowners need to be aware of. When the temperatures drop, Major issues that could come up are broken, frozen and burst water pipes. Frozen pipes are a problem for a couple of reasons. They can create an inconvenience but, more seriously, can cause major damage to your property.
The most obvious danger of a frozen pipe is the inability to access running water. This can interfere with your ability to do everyday tasks such as washing the dishes, taking a shower, or running a business if in a commercial space. The second problem that can occur when a pipe freeze is that the pipe actually bursts. Once the actual water in the pipe freezes, the pressure is created between the closed faucet and the blockage that can build up to a point that causes the pipe to explode. Pipes that are located in attics or in basements may also have a greater tendency to freeze. These pipes may not receive the same amount of heat as the rest of the property. If these areas are not used as living space, they also may not be properly insulated.
If you have a burst or frozen pipe water damage, regardless if it’s home, business, attic, or basement water damage, give us a call today and will be on our way in 30 minutes or less!
