The frigid temperatures contribute to bursting pipes that cause water damage, headaches and a big mess. Beyond the nuisance, consequences of the rush of water can be severe causing mold, fire and even electrocution. A pipe rupturing is serious and emergency measures must be taken immediately. Make sure all family members know where the main water valve is located. If you hear water running, even if you cannot see it, turn off the main water valve and electrical supply immediately and call Putman & Sons 24/7 Emergency Hotline at 248-652-0990. Do not touch anything electrical if wet. It is prudent to call and document the issue and damage for your insurance company and seek Putman & Sons professional plumbers immediately for assistance.
