Cold weather is great for winter fun in the Gresham Area but not so great for the pipes. SERVPRO of Gresham & SERVPRO Oregon City/Sandy will remediate water damage “Like it never even happened”, but life is better if you can prevent the damage in the first place. Every year, over a quarter of a million homes and businesses, suffer water damage from frozen pipes that burst (Federal Emergency Management Association). SERVPRO of Gresham & SERVPRO of Oregon City/Sandy

is sharing these tips to prevent frozen pipes that may lead to water damage.

Keeping Pipes from Freezing:

• Check for exposed pipes, especially in unheated areas

• Wrap uninsulated pipes with pipe insulation

• Add insulation to attics, basements, and crawl spaces to keep cold drafts from freezing the pipes

• Keep indoor temperatures at 55 degrees F, even when no one will be at home or in the office

• If you will have several days of temperatures at or below 20 degrees F, let cold water trickle through an open tap

• Remove outside hoses from their taps

• Open cabinet doors in bathrooms and kitchens to let warmer area circulate around the pipes

SERVPRO of Gresham & SERVPRO of Oregon City/Sandy wishes you a winter free from water damage or storm damage.
