Protect Your Pipes – Home Improvement & Plumbing

So it finally got cold…really cold. If you haven’t done so yet, make sure you disconnect your hoses from your outdoor faucets to keep your pipes from bursting. Close all windows and seal all cracks that may blow cold air onto your pipes to keep them from freezing. To protect pipes near outdoor walls or windows, wrap them in pipe insulation, available from any home improvement store. If you find yourself with frozen pipes despite all your best efforts to protect them, DO NOT attempt to them them out with an open flame, such as a welding torch. Instead, use a hair dryer. Sure it’s time consuming, but it’s better than burning down your house. Or you can always call the licensed plumbers here at Blass Residential Services. We’ll thaw out your pipes and keep them from freezing in the future.
