As winter weather swings into full force, homeowners often focus on protecting their properties from snow and ice, overlooking a huge threat—cold weather-related water damage. Freezing temperatures can wreak havoc on pipes, causing them to freeze and potentially burst. The expanding ice within pipes exerts immense pressure, leading to cracks and leaks upon thawing. This damage can go unnoticed until water seeps into walls, ceilings, and insulation, causing structural issues and mold growth. To safeguard your home, insulate pipes, seal gaps in doors and windows, and maintain a consistent heating regimen. Prevention is key to combatting cold weather's subtle but destructive impact on your property's water infrastructure. Should you have a pipe burst, call your local SERVPRO at 704-793-1488.
