Cold Weather Property Tips

Tips for Protecting Property in Cold Weather

  • Beware of issues stemming from frozen pipes. Consider letting you faucets drip during extreme cold weather to avoid icy pipes, and insulate any pipes that are in particular danger of freezing. Open kitchen and bathroom cabinets to let the heat get to the pipes.
  • Understand that cold weather can put lots of strain on an old furnace or water heater – and that your thermostat battery could fail during winter months and cold snaps.
  • Disconnect garden hoses and put insulated covers over outside faucets.
  • Keep your garage doors closed whenever possible.
  • Clean your gutters so that water doesn’t get trapped, form ice, and cause damage.
  • Check your roof for damage from ice or heavy snow.
  • In case of frozen or burst pipes, know how to turn off your water main.

If your home is damaged by the cold snap, be sure to act fast, contact SERVPRO of Haddon Heights/Voorees @ 856-566-3388 so we can evaluate the damage.
