When winter hits, wind and snow can have a major impact on your home. Severely low temperatures increase the risk of frozen pipes, especially in outside walls and drafty areas. Baethke Plumbing offers preventative services to keep your pipes from freezing in the winter. We've also offered Chicago homeowners both pipe repair and thawing services for nearly 30 years. In this time, our customer care and dedication has made us a Better Business Bureau A+-rated company. You can trust us to keep your pipes from icing over this season.
Frozen Pipe Repair & Prevention
Once Fall arrives, you'll want to start preparing your home for cold weather. Our Chicago plumbers offer in-depth preventative services, such as insulating pipes and wrapping them in heat tape. However, some do forget to prepare, or a severe cold snap causes damage to pipes that are located further inside the home. When the worst happens, we can unfreeze pipes and check them for any damage. Depending on where the plumbing is located, care will need to be taken in thawing frozen pipes. The unfreezing process can actually cause more harm as water pressure is restored. If the pipes have split from the expansion of ice, our technicians can also repair or re-pipe these sections.
