Helping Prevent Burst Pipes: Water Damage Restoration in Yankton, SD

January 23rd, 2018 · No Comments

Old Man Winter is bearing down across the plains states now. After a relatively mild fall, it can be a bit of a shock when the first subzero temperatures hit and cause widespread freezing. One of the most common causes of water damage that we see in Yankton, SD, are from pipes that burst and then cause basements, kitchens, or bathrooms to fill with water at a most inopportune time.

How to Prevent Pipes From Freezing 

  • Under the sink is a common area that pipes freeze. To prevent this, open cabinet doors underneath the sink in the evening to allow warm air to circulate.
  • Insulate your pipes inside. Unheated areas like crawl spaces, attics, and under cabinets are prime areas for pipes to freeze. A simple but effective fix is to wrap insulation around them in these areas.
  • Let the faucets drip a bit at night. Water flow keeps pipes from freezing
  • If you are out of town, shut off the water completely.

Water damage from burst pipes never happens at a convenient time. That’s why ServiceMaster Clean of SE South Dakota is available to help you with flooding 24/7/365. Our trained technicians can be on site quickly to help remove the water and begin the restoration process.

Water damage can’t wait. The more prolonged standing water sits, the more damage it does. Even in cold conditions, mold spores can propagate and do even more damage. Once mold starts growing, it can present genuine health hazards for you and your family. We can help dry the area, pack out your valuables, and begin restoring the area. If there is structural damage to the home, we can assist with that as well.
