Carpet Cleaning Tips
Tips to keep your pipes from freezingWinter can mean freezing temperatures in Destin, FL and this can lead to frozen pipes. When water freezes in pipes it expands causing pipes to burst. Plumbing problems during the winter abound; even if you live in a warmer climate it can pose a problem at times. If you have had problems with frozen pipes in the past, those same pipes are obvious problem spots. Insulation alone won't keep most pipes from freezing. Here are some tactics that may help keep pipes from freezing:
- Keep a heat source near problem spots.
- Leave vanity or cabinet doors open that house enclosed pipes so heat from the room can penetrate the enclosures.
- Buy pipe wraps that include electrical heat coils embedded in them- just remember to plug them in when cold weather is approaching.
If at any point you are unsure of what to do to keep your pipes from freezing call a professional plumbing contractor for help.
Preventing your pipes from bursting is a better option than mopping up water for hours or days. If you do find yourself in a situation and need help cleaning your carpets, call us here at Chem-Dry by the Emerald Coast, your healthier Destin carpet cleaner.
