Outdoor Water Faucets

8/20/2018 (Permalink)

One of the leading causes of water damage in the Spring, aside from the weather of course, is outdoor faucets. The pipes leading to your outdoor faucets can freeze and burst in the winter but, because the water is off, you won't notice these breaks until the spring. The best way to check is to have one person stand inside the house where the pipe for the faucet leads outside, while the other person turns the water on outside. If you do notice a leak, turn the water off immediately and contact a plumber. Also be sure to shut the water off at the inside shut off.  If you have a leak that gets out of hand, we are available 24/7 for all of your restoration needs.
