Glenview, IL Frozen Pipes
One of the most frustrating things that can happen in the wintertime in your home or business is freezing pipes. Water expands when it freezes, so frozen pipes not only leave you without reliable access to plumbing, but can also cause pipes to burst, resulting in some serious damage to your property. This is because ice on the pipes increases the pressure between the area of ice formation and your faucets, so the plumbing may burst even where there is little or no ice on that pipe. You can take preventive action to prevent burst pipes, but when all else fails, you will need a plumber to repair your plumbing.

A Few Tips to Prevent Trouble
Are you worried about the possibility of a frozen pipe bursting and damaging your property? Call a plumber when you need help preparing your plumbing system for potential freezing, and follow the following tips to take preventive action.
- Insulate the Pipes! – One of the most important things you can do to prepare for a long winter is to insulate the pipes. Your pipes may already be protected by the building insulation, or you may need to add insulation to the pipes themselves.
- Going on Vacation? Follow these Steps – If you’re planning on leaving the home for a few days, we do not recommend shutting off the heat completely. If you plan to do so, locate the water shut–off valve (or call a plumber for help locating this), shut off the water, and drain the water system by turning on fixtures in the house.
- Call a Plumber! – If you want more information about preparing your pipes to ward off freezing, contact a member of our team. We offer professional advice and assistance, and if a burst pipe puts your home in jeopardy, we also offer emergency plumbing service.
