4 Signs of Frozen Pipes - What to Watch For In Georgetown County
Are your Georgetown County pipes ready for freezing temperatures?
We are going to go through another bout of freezing temperatures here on the Grand Strand this week.
Here are 4 signs that your pipes have frozen:
Temperatures Are Below Freezing - Pipes cannot freeze if it is not cold enough outside for them to do so.
Actual Frost on the Pipes - For pipes that can actively be seen, such as those under sinks, you may be able to see frost that has accumulated on the exterior of the pipe.
Poor Water pressure Or No Water At All - Another sign that you may have a frozen pipe on your hands is lack of running water.
Foul Smells - A fourth potential sign of a blocked pipe is an odd smell coming from a faucet or drain.
Take Swift And Quick Action!
Once you are aware that a pipe is frozen, you must act quickly to thaw the pipe. Depending on the location of the pipe and your level of expertise, you can attempt to thaw the pipe yourself or you can contact a licensed plumber to thaw the pipe for you. It is important to thaw the pipe as soon as possible because it has the potential to burst and cause extensive damage to your property.
If your pipes do burst and you suffer a water damage please call SERVPRO as soon as possible 843-436-2121!
