Water- Frozen Pipes and what to look for!

With the extreme drop in temperature, in the Southern Maryland area, we are seeing burst pipes already this year. When the air surrounding pipes drops below freezing it causes ice in the pipes. With ice in the pipes it causes a pressure back up which can cause the pipes to burst. Burst pipe are not only a hassle but can cause severe damage to your property. There are warning signs that your pipes may be beginning to freeze.

  • Strange smells from faucet or drain
  • No or very little water coming out of pipes
  • Frost on the pipes
  • Not at the right temperature

Please be aware of the warning signs as our temperatures drop. Protect your homes from any unnecessary water damage this winter.

If you need help with your water damage please do not hesitate to reach out to SERVPRO® of Charles County and SERVPRO® of Oxon Hill @ 301.753.8313.
