This post is brought to you by Roto-Rooter. All opinions are my own. Winter and the cold weather are upon us. With that comes all of the fun things like Christmas, sledding, ice skating and more! While we are enjoying all of these great cold weather activities or at home drinking hot chocolate and watching our favorite movie it is great to relax and have peace of mind. To have that peace of mind, you need to make sure to get your home ready for the cold weather. Simple things like changing the air filter in your furnace to making sure that your pipes are protected.
Because it is so important, I want to share these simple steps to protect your pipes in the winter. I hope these help you keep your house safe and protected during the cold season:
- Remove hoses and cover outside faucets before it freezes
- Turn off your sprinklers
- Keep your heater on so your pipes don’t freeze (even if you aren’t living at the location, you still need to have the heat on if the water is turned on)
- Make sure your heater vents are open so the heat circulates through the house
- Have a trickle of water running in one sink. Lukewarm water running through a faucet that is on an outside wall could help prevent your pipes from freezing.
- Add a good septic treatment like Roto-Rooter Septic Treatment help prevent problems with septic backup in your pipes and yard.
These things help keep my pipes protected so that I can enjoy my hot coco and movies without worrying. I also keep regular Roto-Rooter clog removal on hand in case we have any problems. I am so glad that I do because a couple weeks ago we had a mess in our kitchen and the Roto-Rooter clog remover literally cut straight through and got to work, and my sink started draining within minutes. I was so glad that we were able to fix that plumbing issue ourselves.
I love Roto-Rooter when my sinks get clogged. It works so good to remove the clog and get me back on my way with little work.
