Frozen Pipe Thawing Services in Staten Island

When a frozen pipe bursts it can cause water to leak inside walls and floors causing expensive water damage throughout your house. A three millimeter crack in a pipe can spew up to 250 gallons of water a day, causing water and structural damage.

How do I know if my pipes are frozen?

If you turn on a faucet and only a trickle comes out, a frozen pipe may be at fault, especially if the current or previous night’s temperature is at or below freezing. The best thing to do in this situation is to call a professional.

Why call a professional? Thawing pipes yourself can be dangerous and can also damage the pipe. If there is any standing water due to a burst pipe, even using a device such as a hair dryer can be hazardous, as using electrical appliances in areas of standing water can cause electrocution.
