During these cold winter months, keeping warm is a necessity. Keeping your pipes warm is just as important for your household/business. One of the most prominent ways that households flood is because pipes freeze and the metal becomes hard and compressed over night. Once the water is turned back on, the pipes heat up, expand, and bust. This is what leads to flooding water in the house and a massive mess. Nobody wants that! It is important to keep your pipes warm during these winter months to avoid this predicament. House floods can cause some major problems especially during the holiday season. If you have any questions on how to avoid this issue, please do not hesitate to contact us at (817) 596-8714.
