​Frozen Pipes in​ Aurora!

The extreme cold that comes with the Aurora winter season can cause major water damage. The homes in Aurora that are left vacant during this season are at the greatest risk. When leaving your home for long periods of time, be sure to keep the heater on and have someone check up on it from time to time. Water pipes that are most prone to freeze and break are ones that lack the proper insulation. These frozen pipe breaks can be unnoticeable because they usually originate in your crawlspaces and basements where insulation is minimum.

​​Tell-Tale Signs ​of Frozen Pipes:

  • Temperature - When the temperature outside falls to 32 Degrees Fahrenheit or lower you should start taking precautions to prevent freezing pipes. Some great tips for just that can be found here.
  • Frosty Pipes - Frost can begin to accumulate on near freezing pipes that you can see such as under sinks.
  • Low or No Water - When you turn on your faucets and little or no water comes out, the pipe leading to the faucet may be frozen.
  • ​​Strange Odors - A fourth sign could potentially be a strange smell coming from your pipes. If the pipe is partially or completely frozen, the only place for the odor to escape is back into your property.

Basement Flood Aurora OR

​​There are many things you can do to prevent your basement from flooding. Foremost, it is paramount that all basements ​have a working sump pump that will pump out any water automatically. This will help tremendously in your​ Aurora basement flood prevention. Periodically, you or a professional home inspector should check and fix any cracks or leaks in your foundation or window sills. Make sure your rain gutters are clear and all downspouts are flowing away from the home.

Along with outside water coming into your basement, you can also have water damage that originates from inside. Pipes bursting, toilet leaks, overflows etc. can also flow into your basement. The fundamental law of gravity tells us ​that any water that originates upstairs will come down until there is nowhere else for it to go. In other words, ​maintain your plumbing to prevent a water loss. Brighten Restoration can help in all aspects of your​ Aurora water damage.
