Frozen pipes are prone to bursting. This means that after your fix the temperature problem, you may be left with water damage and mold development. To prevent that, inspect the frozen pipes thoroughly. If you find any cracks, fix them promptly with epoxy putty and water resistant tape. If the crack is too big, or if you want a more permanent solution, call a professional team.

Warm the Pipes
