The extreme cold that comes with the Portland winter season can cause major water damage. The homes in Portland 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.
If the water is still leaking or spewing, the first thing you want to do is stop it from causing further damage. Teach everyone in the home or business where and how you can turn off the water. You can usually find the shutoff in the basement, on a hose bib outside, or near the street.
The history of the city of Portland, Oregon, began in 1843 when business partners William Overton and Asa Lovejoy filed to claim land on the west bank of the Willamette River in Oregon Country. In 1845 the name of Portland was chosen for this community and on February 8, 1851, the city was incorporated. Portland has continued to grow in size and population, with the 2010 Census showing 583,776 residents in the city.
