Cold Snap Is Heading Our Way To Minneapolis

fire saftyWith the first cold snap of the winter season predicted to hit Minneapolis this weekend, keep an eye out for frozen pipes in your home or business.

If you turn on a faucet and only a trickle comes out, suspect a frozen pipe. Likely, places for frozen pipes include against exterior walls or where your water service enters your home through the foundation.

Keep the faucet open. As you treat the frozen pipe and the frozen area begins to melt, water will begin to flow through the frozen area. Running water through the pipe will help melt ice in the pipe.

Apply heat to the section of pipe using an electric heating pad wrapped around the pipe, an electric hair dryer, a portable space heater (kept away from flammable materials), or by wrapping pipes with towels soaked in hot water. I hope it goes without saying do not use a blowtorch, kerosene or propane heater, charcoal stove, or other open flame device.

Apply heat until full water pressure is restored. If you cannot locate the frozen area, if it is not accessible, or if it is just a bigger job than you can or want to take on yourself, call our highly trained team at 24Restore. We have the people and the equipment to thaw out an entire house or business if needed. Whatever your disaster is, we have the expertise to fix it!

fire safetyHELPFUL TIP: If you are blessed enough to escape this frozen state for vacation or even if you travel for work, remember to shut off your main water line for safe measures. No one wants to come home from traveling to discover the devastation of water damage due to frozen pipes that could have easily been prevented.

Alex did a great job scheduling, coordinating, and keeping me informed. He made sure that everything was done in a timely manner. I always felt that my job was a priority. All the workmen did a great job and were very polite. I am pleased with the results. I would highly recommend your company!

Working with the employees at 24restore has been an easy process. They aimed to please.

Kudos to Shelli Abraham especially, she worked with the mortgage company and insurance company so I didn’t have to, I’m a caregiver for my husband with Dementia, she took the pressure off having to deal with them, thanks Shelli.

Yes. I appreciated the ability to funnel all activities thru a one-stop shop proved to be very valuable in a disaster project such as ours demo, construction and finish as well as work directly with insurance company. The team has been professional and those on site have been respectful of our home and schedule.

Your team has been absolutely amazing, professional, sympathetic and wonderful. They took my mess and made it manageable as I shed a few tears, which they also consoled with empathy. At a time when we have floods and tornados city wide you responded within hours. Thank, I am impressed and I have passed the word on to many.
