Freezing temperatures are expected this week in the Richmond area. Make sure your water pipes are protected in order to avoid costly disasters within our home. Here are a few tips we recommend to help you avoid frozen pipes:

    1)Insulate pipes in your home's crawl spaces and attic
    2) Seal leaks that allow cold air inside near where pipes are located

    3) Disconnect garden hoses and shut off water from pipes leading to outside faucets

    4) Allow a trickle of water to drip from faucets throughout the night

    5) Open cabinet doors to allow heat to get to uninsulated pipes under sinks and appliances near exterior walls

We understand frozen pipes are not 100% avoidable but if you follow the simple tips outlined above you can decrease your risk of this potentially messy and expensive problem.
