Springs Arrival in Southwest Missouri means Burst Spigot Pipes
It's that time of the year, winter has left us the temperatures start to warm up and we are ready to leave winter behind us. Unfortunately, many people have broken pipes left over from winter and don’t even know it yet. SERVPRO of Nixa/Branson always sees an uptick of calls from customers that have been outside working all day and unbeknownst to them water was running in their basement or main level of their home all day while they were working outside.
Typically, these are caused by leaving the hose connected all winter, the leftover water freezes in the stem of the faucet spigot. The best way to prevent this is to disconnect all hoses in the fall. It is also a good idea to check inside your home if you plan to be working outside with the hose during that first spring day. If this unfortunate event happens to you call SERVPRO of Nixa/Branson 417-724-0084 our trained professionals know how to take care of this quickly and efficiently to minimize damage to your home.
