Hey, hey, Classic Real Estate tenants, let’s make sure we don’t have any frozen pipes this winter! By now you have probably noticed that winter has blown into town. We want to be sure that it doesn’t bring with it any unnecessary property damage, costly repair expenses, or the inconvenience to our tenants of being without water service – or worse having to move out of your home!
PLEASE, please, please make sure that your hose is disconnected from the outside faucet (which should have already been done) and that you leave all inside faucets dripping or slightly streaming when temperatures drop below freezing – 32 degrees. The weather forecast for this weekend includes predicted lows of 21 degrees Saturday night, 0 degrees Sunday night, 5 degrees Monday night, 11 degrees Tuesday night, and 19 degrees Wednesday night. It is crucial that you leave your faucets dripping this weekend – especially overnight. It is also helpful if you leave cabinet doors open underneath sinks so that warm air can get in and circulate around the pipes.
Let’s all be aware of weather forecasts this winter and take these simple precautions…it will prevent BIG headaches and make all of our lives a little easier!
Thank you, thank you!
