frozenDuring the winter months it is important to protect the property you are renting from having problems with frozen or burst pipes.

Please keep the following things in mind:

  • Run both hot and cold water at dripping in all faucets inside your home.
  • Leave the heat running at all times!
  • Leave cabinets under your sinks open to allow more heat to get to the plumbing
  • If you have an outside hose that is still hooked up, please unhook and drain the spigot/hose bib as water left can freeze and cause damage to the pipe.
