Can’t I thaw out my frozen pipes by myself?
There are plenty of DIY guides online for doing this. However, it’s often best to call a professional, and here’s why. First, you don’t want to cause more damage to your plumbing. Second, our plumbers can get to pipes that are out of reach of your hairdryer. Finally, we’re licensed, bonded, and insured against any damage that occurs.
Does “dripping” my faucets really work?
It certainly helps. Leaving your faucets dripping water on the coldest nights keeps the water in your pipes moving, making it more difficult to freeze. However, if the pipes are cold enough, they’ll still freeze, so we recommend doing this in addition to adding insulation and having your furnace keeping your home toasty.
Can’t I just take a blowtorch to the pipe?
Don’t do that! Any sort of open flame device is going to probably do more damage to the pipe than the freezing will, not to mention the fire risk you’re introducing into your home. Our plumbers have special heating equipment that doesn’t hurt pipes while melting the ice inside. You don’t want to make matters worse.
What do I do if I live in an apartment?
We can thaw frozen pipes that are in apartment buildings or condos in most cases. However, if you have a burst pipe, you’ll need to contact your landlord or property manager to get them to shut off the water to the affected area. When you call Reimer, we can help guide you through this process for getting your frozen pipes fixed.
