Burst Pipe in Parkers Prairie?

1/11/2022 (Permalink)

A frozen pipe outside a local business is shown. We are trusted leaders in commercial water damage restoration in Otter Tail County.

Commercial businesses can rely on SERVPRO® of Douglas & Otter Tail Counties to respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Parkers Prairie. According to the Institute of Business and Home Safety, frozen pipes are a leading source of property damage during severe winter weather. Here are their recommendations for reducing your risk of damage:

  • Seal openings and penetrations: Seal all windows, doors, and other openings on exterior walls with caulk or insulation to prevent cold air from penetrating wall cavities
  • Seal cracks and penetrations: Seal all wall cracks and penetrations, including domestic and fire protection lines, electrical conduit, and other utility service lines
  • Insulate and seal attic penetrations: Insulate and seal attic penetrations such as partition walls, vents, plumbing stacks, and electric and mechanical chases

  • Run faucets: Let all faucets drip during extremely cold weather to prevent freezing of the water inside the pipe, and if freezing does occur, to relieve pressure buildup in the pipes between the ice blockage and the faucet

  • Insulate pipes
  • Insulate recessed light fixtures
  • Install an automatic excess flow switch
  • Monitor sprinkler systems
  • Provide backup power
