  • Swimming pool supply line
  • Water supply pipes in unheated interior areas
  • Pipes in basements, crawl spaces, garages
  • Pipes that run along exterior walls
  • Water sprinkler supply lines
 Tips to protect and prevent frozen pipes:
  • Remove or drains lines not in use
  • Avoid anti freeze in lines and follow manufacturers instructions
  • Consider adding insulation in basements, attics, crawl spaces or garages
  • Keep garage door shut whenever possible
  • Open cabinets to allow heat to circulate around plumbing
  • Running water, even a small trickle helps reduce freezing
  • Avoid lowering the thermostat overnight
  • Continue heating your home or business if you are away for travel or extended periods
 Keys to thawing frozen pipes:
  • If water trickles when turned on it's a sign of freezing in pipes. Allow trickle to continue even if slow running it will help with thawing.
  • Apply low heat to pipe by wrapping an electric blanket or using a hair dryer on low setting.
  • Wrapping hot towels around pipes will help with thawing
  • Avoid applying high heat or open flame

General Preventing Flood Damage Our Disaster Recovery Team is ready when you need us!

Have you ever wondered what you can do as a homeowner to help prevent damage to your home during a flood?

There are several things to consider when you experience water damage, as well as some flood terms to help you keep informed.  Here are those terms:

Flood Watch- Flooding is possible.  Tune in to NOAA Weather Radio, commercial radio, or a local television station for information.

Flash Flood Warning- A flash flood is occurring; seek higher ground on foot immediately.

Flash Flood Watch- Flash flooding is possible.  Be prepared to move to higher ground, listen to NOAA Weather Radio, commercial radio, or a local television station for information.

Flood Warning- Flooding is occurring or will occur soon; if advised to evacuate do so immediately.

To help prevent flooding in your home, follow these simple instructions:

Elevate the furnace, water heater, and electric panel in your home if you live in an area that has a high flood risk.

Consider installing "check valves" to prevent flood water from backing up into the drains of your home.

If feasible, construct barriers to stop floodwater from entering the building and seal walls in basements with waterproofing compounds. 

Above all else make sure your family has an emergency action plan prepared. 

Build an emergency kit that contains blankets, flashlights, batteries, non-perishable food items, bottled water, and any necessary daily medications.

Form a family communication packet that includes local emergency phone numbers, as well as a safe meeting place in the event of an evacuation.

For any of your water damage needs in Evansville, Indiana please do not hesitate in calling us.  We are always here to help!
