Don't Let Your Pipes Freeze!!

Why SERVPRO Don't Let Your Pipes Freeze!! Make sure your pipes don't freeze and bust during the cold weather! If they do, SERVPRO of Spring/Tomball is always here to help!

With these cold temperatures we are experiencing, it is ALWAYS a good idea to ensure that your pipes don't freeze and bust! There are several low-cost or free things you can do to protect your home, helping you save hundreds, even thousands of dollars in repair.

1. Insulate your pipes and faucets. Keep in mind that towels may not be the best long-term option.

  • Pipe insulation materials, faucet covers and slip-on faucet protectors are all recommended ways to keep the pipes warm. You can find them at any local hardware stores.

2. Turn off your sprinkler system and make sure the backflow preventer is drained.

  • Know where you black flow or your vacuum system for your irrigation system is. If your backflow preventer is not drained, then your pipes may break.

3. Experts say you can try your hair dryer if pipes freeze.

  • Obviously, safety comes first. However, if you can locate the part of the pipe that is frozen, you can try to thaw it with a hairdryer. 

4. If you live in an old home, keep your faucet lightly dripping.

  • Older homes were built to a different code. People with older homes should leave their faucets lightly dripping to prevent water from freezing inside pipes.

Mold Damage

10/31/2018 (Permalink)

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
