Tips for Preventing Frozen Pipes and Winter Disasters from the Experts at Roto-Rooter
CINCINNATI, Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- When the first big winter storm hits, many people focus on prepping the outside of the home - shoveling snow, spreading salt, putting the winter tires on the car. Now that the first snow has melted, it's the perfect time to take preventative steps indoors. Freezing temperatures that last for days at a time can cause a variety of plumbing problems. When pipes freeze, water in the pipes turns to ice and expands. The pressure causes cracks, whether the pipe is made of plastic, copper or steel. Even a tiny crack can unleash 250 gallons of water in a single day. Even in the south, where cold weather is a rarity, there are simple steps to take to prevent pipes from freezing and damaging structures when temperatures drop.
