How to Protect Your Pipes From Freezing and flooding your Baltimore County Home.

11/7/2017 (Permalink)

Call SERVPRO of Perry Hall White Marsh if your Baltimore county home is affected by Burst pipes or for any of your Fire, Water and Mold Clean up needs

Frozen pipes cause large water damages all over the baltimore county area. When temperatures drop below 20 degrees for more than 3 days SERVPRO of Perry Hall White Marsh becomes inundated with water damages from burst pipes. 

#1: FOAM

#2: DOME

#3: DRIP

FOAM: Insulate pipes exposed to the elements or cold drafts. By keeping your water warmer, you reduce the risk of frozen pipes - not to mention the second hand bonus of saving on energy costs during the winter months.

DOME: Place an insulating dome or other coverings on outdoor faucets and spigots to reduce the likelihood of water pipes freezing, expanding and causing a costly leak.

DRIP: Allow a slow drip from your faucets to reduce the buildup of pressure in the pipes.


If you are going out of town and suspect the temperature will drop, turn off the water and open all of the taps to drain the water system. This way pipes won’t
freeze and you won’t return home to a mess.

If you or anyone you know does experience frozen pipes, be sure to turn off your water, and call SERVPRO of Perry Hall White Marsh 410-529-1664 or your local SERVPRO Franchise.
