One of the most common calamities to occur for Brooklyn residents are frozen water pipes. Unfortunately, frozen water pipes Brooklyn not only cut off the water flow to your home but can also cause pipe damage if not quickly remedied. In the New York area where winter weather often dips to below 0 degrees Fahrenheit, frozen pipes are a significance issue. With single digit temps scheduled for this weekend and winter weather hitting much of the country, plumbers in Brooklyn have started to receive emergency calls about frozen pipes.
Water naturally expands when frozen. The rapid expansion of the frozen water inside of a pipe causes the pipe to crack. You might not immediately notice the broken pipe until the weather warms up and the pipe thaws. Once the ice blockage melts, the water begins to spray or leak from the pipe’s fracture. Unfortunately, a substantial amount of water pipes are hidden in your home’s flooring, roof spaces or walls. The hidden pipes make it difficult to see a break in the pipe until the leaking water causes widespread damage to walls, ceilings, flooring and household furnishings.
