Plumbing problems can happen any time of year and any time of day (though it seems like they wait until weekends and the middle of the night to maximize inconvenience, doesn’t it?). That said, along with cold weather, ice, rain, and snow, winter also brings several challenges when it comes to your plumbing systems. Let’s take a look at some common issues - and ways to prevent them from becoming big, costly problems.
Winter… love it or hate it, it comes every year! While it does bring hot cocoa, sledding, snowball fights, and snuggling under the blankets, it can also bring frozen pipes, high utility bills, and other cold-weather plumbing issues. Let’s enjoy the season without having to call in the plumber for emergencies (though you know we’ll be right there for our Statesville and Iredell County customers whenever you need us!). Fortunately, there are some easy steps you can take to get your system winter-ready.
Every year, nearly 100 million of us take to the road, the rails, and the skies to visit family and friends for the holidays. While we’re worrying about the presents we need to wrap, the items we need to pack, or the Ubers we need to order when we arrive, there is another concern to think about: plumbing. If it didn’t make your busy holiday to-do list, you’re not alone! But by taking a few easy steps, you can prepare your plumbing system for winter - and for your absence.
Drops in temperature can have a significant impact on your plumbing system. To prevent big problems down the road, take a bit of time to prep for the cold weather and any absences you are planning. The last thing you want to deal with when you come back from holiday travel is burst pipes, a damaged roof, or some smelly sewer line issues.
As we approach the holiday season, Statesville residents and business owners will be traveling all over to visit friends and family. Many will lock the doors on their homes, storefronts, and warehouses for several days in a row, and unfortunately, some may return to find a plumbing emergency. A plumbing emergency occurs when a catastrophic failure of your pipes or plumbing systems results in a steady water leak. This kind of seemingly unstoppable drip, or sometimes even torrent of water flowing into your home or business can cause significant damage.
We have developed this guide to help make sure you are prepared to respond quickly in the case of a plumbing emergency. If you have any doubt, make sure you contact your plumbing professionals at Action Service Company.
