With the winter season fast approaching, homeowners across the United States are preparing themselves, and their homes, for the upcoming weather conditions. Snow, although white and fluffy, can become quite uncomfortable – especially when the temperatures begin to drop. Usually, people cover themselves up or rely on their heating appliances to counter measure the unbearable cold. However, unlike the interior of your home, some utilities, like your water pipes, cannot handle the stress of the outdoor environment, and develop all sorts of damage which can lead to unwanted events such as a burst and frozen pipes.

The pipes that are installed around your home are just one of the many passageways for water to go in and out of your property. Its inner spaces make it possible for liquid to slide smoothly and freely, but there are cases wherein foreign obstructions (big or small) are known to collect within the pipes. This usually happens when the water begins to freeze, which creates a blockage, making it nearly impossible for water to escape. If the interference was not immediately dealt with, the material will experience high amounts of pressure – leading it to burst. This is a situation you do not want to face. Luckily, at Pettyjohn’s, we are ready to assist homes located in the surrounding areas of Wake Forest, Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Triangle, Fayetteville and surrounding areas in North Carolina, with all their burst and frozen pipe woes.

The Dangers of Frozen Pipes

A frozen pipe is no ordinary leak or sewage problem. Like what was said earlier, during the colder months of the year, the water in the pipes tends to freeze up. During its initial stage, your home’s water flow will become more inefficient because of the obstruction, and in due time, burst because your pipes can no longer handle the amount of pressure it is experiencing. With the volumes of water gushing out of the pipes, the damage can be extremely difficult to patch up, especially without the help of a professional hand. Also, without the proper gear, you are exposing yourself and your home to toxins, which could have come from the contaminants that have been acquired from your sewage, and further damage your whole property.
