How to Avoid Frozen Pipes and a Wet Basement This Winter

How to Avoid Frozen Pipes and a Wet Basement This Winter

Most people don’t sit around the dinner table on Thanksgiving and express gratitude for pipes that haven’t frozen. However, coming home to a wet basement from a pipe breaking is no joking matter. Here are a few tips from our professional team on how to ensure your pipes don’t freeze this winter.

  • Turn Up the Heat- Even if you are planning an extended vacation during the holidays, leaving the heat on and set above 50 degrees in your home can help keep the pipes from freezing. If your water pipes are on an outside wall of your home- making them more susceptible to the colder weather - heating tape may also come in handy. Heating tape comes in two forms- one that acts similar to a space heater and needs to be plugged and unplugged as needed, and the other which can be applied directly to the pipe itself.  You may also choose to apply additional insulation to your pipes if they are easily accessible. Foam rubber or fiberglass fittings can decrease your chances of frozen, busted pipes and a wet basement.
  • Seal it Up- Before the worst of the cold weather sets in, inspect your pipes both on the inside and out of the home. While this may seem like an obvious step, it is often overlooked. If you notice any cracks or holes in or around the pipes, seal them up with caulk to prevent further damage.
  • Let the Fear of a Wet Basement Drip Away- To further ensure your pipes don’t freeze and leave your house feeling more like a swimming pool, try leaving the faucets dripping overnight. This prevents pressure from building in the pipes and possible bursts.

In the event that you do come home to a wet basement, call the pros! Our team of water removal specialists at AdvantaClean of the Lower Susquehanna is available around the clock to help with your water emergencies. When you need us, we’ll be there!
