24-Hour Emergency Service, 365 Days a Year
In the midst of a harsh cold snap, the unfortunate event of frozen pipes bursting can lead to the sudden release of hundreds of gallons of water, causing immediate chaos and potential damage to your space. At Just Us Construction & Restoration, Inc., we understand the urgency of such situations. That's why we collaborate closely with emergency plumbers to swiftly address the crisis.
Our coordinated efforts mean that while the skilled plumbers work diligently to repair the damaged pipes, we commence the crucial process of drying out your space. This simultaneous action is pivotal in preventing further harm, such as mold growth and structural issues, and in expediting the restoration of your home or property to its pre-damage condition. Our commitment is not just to repair but to restore, ensuring your peace of mind during challenging times.
How We Work
Water extraction and drying.
Pipe repair or replacement.
Restoration and cleanup.
It is crucial to contact Just Us or another restoration company immediately in the event of a frozen or burst pipe to minimize damage and prevent potential hazards.
What Should You Expect
Leaving sink cabinet doors ajar allows warm air to circulate around the pipes to help keep them from freezing. Wrapping pipes near exterior walls will also help protect them from freezing.
Infrared heat lamps or space heaters can gently thaw frozen pipes if you notice frost accumulation. Be careful not to heat the pipes too aggressively, though, as that may cause them to burst as well. Remember never to leave a heat source unattended to avoid fires.
Pipes running along exterior walls, especially below ground level, are prone to freezing and bursting during cold weather.
Temperatures 20 degrees Fahrenheit or less, sustained for three days or more, are likely to cause frozen pipes. If the weather is also windy, temperatures below 32 degrees Fahrenheit can create a frozen pipe situation.
Inexpensive styrofoam spigot covers go a long way to prevent the adjacent plumbing from freezing, as well as draining any water from those faucets after shutting off their water supply inside the building. Most homeowners forget this important step, only to have their basements or crawl spaces flood in the spring when they turn their outdoor faucets on for the first time after winter.
