Winter Tip: Frozen Pipes, Big Problems

Written by WSI Genesis on . Posted in , .

It is winter and the New England weather can be very unforgiving for properties. Bitter cold temperatures and driving snow storms wreak havoc on homes. Frozen pipes cause thousands of dollars in property damage every year. A tiny pipe crack can result in countless gallons of water flowing into your home affecting the structure and contents. This kind of situation can be devastating to a home or property owner. Thankfully, there are a few steps you can take to prepare for, or even help prevent, these occurrences…
–          Pipe inspection (professional recommended)

  • Are pipes properly insulated?
  • Are there any leaks that can be sealed/repaired?
  • Focus on attics and crawlspaces where pipes are most vulnerable
  • Know where your main water shut-off is in case of an emergency

–          Winter game plan

  • Maintain sufficient house temperature
  • Allow for heat to circulated throughout house (don’t block off rooms)
  • Turn off outdoor faucets
  • Have a friend inspect house daily if you are out of town
  • Have pipes professionally winterized if property will be vacant

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
