Frozen Pipes in Your Office
Your employees need to be safe and focused on the daily task at hand to stay running efficiently. The last thing any business needs is a broken pipe or some other water source disrupting your day to day operations and costing you valuable time. With the cold winter upon us, your business is increasingly vulnerable to water and storm damage. Frozen water pipes are one of the most common reasons for business downtime in winter.
Let Faucets Drip
Suppose you have bathrooms or sinks located near exterior walls or colder areas, like a warehouse or garage. In that case, you will want to take a couple of extra steps during freezing temperatures. If you know that the temperatures will be dropping to near or below zero, you will want to make sure your sinks are dripping water. The dripping water ensures that the water in the pipes leading to the sink are moving and don’t have time to freeze and burst the pipes.
Insulate Exposed Pipes
If you have exposed water pipes in your business areas that aren’t as well heated, you may want to insulate the pipes to ensure they don’t freeze. Many burst pipes in businesses are found in warehouses, garages, and near entrances that are continually being opened. Insulating these pipes can also be beneficial during the hot summers as the insulation can prevent condensation on the lines, which can also lead to water damage.
