Winter Weather Frozen Pipes in Foxborough, MA
With the winter season just around the corner, it is important to remember that the season's weather is more than just the common snow covered sidewalks and slippery roads. If you're a New Englander, freezing temps and heavy snow are as common in the winter as beautiful foliage in the fall or green grass in the Summer. With freezing temperatures comes the possibility of freezing pipes which can result in significant water damage to your home or commercial property.
Frozen pipes occur when exposed to freezing temps. Common areas for freezing pipes are basements, attics, garages, crawlspaces, or along exterior walls within a home. Additionally, outdoor water spigots are a regular place for cold weather exposure. A frozen pipe can burst at the point where the ice blockage inside the pipe is located, but usually the rupture is caused from the backflow of pressure between the water source and the blockage.
If your home or commercial property experiences a burst pipe caused by the extreme cold temps that surround a winter storm, be sure to contact SERVPRO of Foxborough. We will make sure your property if properly dried mitigated in the affected areas to make it "Like it never even happened."
