Frozen Pipe Repair And Prevention

Frozen Pipes left untreated can cause thousands of dollars in damage and can lead to health concerns down the road.  As water freezes air gets trapped in tiny bubbles expanding the water into ice.  Most piping is still copper and therefore has little resistance to expanding.  Once Copper pipe expands it becomes brittle any any bump or weak spot can burst.  Now when then the pipe thaws out you will have 4 to 8 gallons of water bursting out every minute damaging everything in its path from furniture, family heirlooms, electronics, but the greatest threats are not from the water but what the water leaves behind, deadly Black Mold.  Mold can cause thousands of dollars of damage and lead to serious health issues if not prevented.
