How to Prevent Pipe Freezing
Cold temperatures can result in frozen pipes that can cause thousands of dollars in damage for home and business owners. Frozen pipes can be prevented if the proper precautions are taken. Some of the ways to prevent pipes from freezing include:
- Keeping your house warm
If you leave your property for any amount of time, ensure that your heat is set properly. The heat does not need to be set as high as normal, but keeping the thermostat above 50 degrees Fahrenheit is a good way to keep enough warmth so that the pipes do not freeze and burst.
When temperatures are below freezing it can be a good idea to allow faucets to drip rather than keeping them closed in order to prevent a buildup of pressure that causes frozen pipes to burst.
Fitting your pipes with foam or fiberglass sleeves helps decrease the likelihood of freezing. This is effective for pipes that are exposed but can be difficult for pipes that are behind walls. Insulation can be added to walls in order to keep the temperature of the pipes within them above freezing.

Cleaning methods vary depending on the type of smoke damage.
Typically where there's smoke there's fire, however not all smoke damage is the same. Depending on the type of smoke, different cleaning methods and products may be used.
There are typicaly 3 main types of smoke. The type of smoke is determined by the material that's being burned.
- Natural:This type of smoke is caused by burning natural products such as wood and paper. These materials produce a dry powdery soot. This residue easier to clean than other residues and repsonds well to vacuuming and dry wiping provided it is not set in.
- Synthetic: These appear when oil based materials are burned such as plastic. These material produce a black thick smoke with a thick smeary residue. These are far more difficult to clean and often need a more agressive cleaning method.
- Protein: This residue is caused by the burning of meats or food items. These items leave behind a yellow sticky residue that is very difficult to clean and often requires a detergent or degreaser to clean.
The experts at SERVPRO Of Farmingdale/Massapequa are highly trained in determining what type of smoke damage they are dealing with and what the best cleaning methods are.
Not all Storm Damage Is The Same
Storm Damage is a very broad category. There are many different types of storms that cause very different damages.
Here are a Few examples:
- Water Damage: Rain storm damage can effect your entire home. Heavy rains and flash flooding can cause basement flooding due to seepage or sump pump malfunction. A leaking roof could cause severe interior damage.
- Wind Damage: Heavy winds could cause damage to roofing, siding, fencing, and other areas of your property. Wind could also cause flying debris resulting in more damage.
- Hail Damage: Although hail is more common in certain parts of the country it could happen anywhere. Hail effects roofs, siding, fencing, cars, and many other things. Large hail can break windows and skylights in homes and buildings.
