Esko Needs to Know!

According to the Institute of Business and Home Safety (IBHS), frozen pipes are a leading cause of property damage during severe winter weather. SERVPRO® of Aitkin, Carlton & West St. Louis Counties offers these recommendations for reducing your risk of frozen pipes from the IBHS:

  • Seal openings and penetrations:Seal all windows, doors, and other spaces on exterior walls with caulk or insulation to prevent cold air from penetrating wall cavities
  • Seal cracks and penetrationsSeal all wall cracks and penetrations, including domestic and fire protection lines, electrical conduit, and other utility service lines
  • Insulate and seal attic penetrations:Insulate and seal attic penetrations such as partition walls, vents, plumbing stacks, and electric and mechanical chases
  • Run faucets:Let all faucets drip during extremely cold weather to prevent freezing of the water inside the pipe, and if freezing does occur, to relieve pressure buildup in the pipes between the ice blockage and the faucet
  • Insulate pipes
  • Insulate recessed light fixtures
  • Install an automatic excess flow switch
  • Monitor sprinkler systems
  • Provide backup power
