Winterizing Your Cabin to Avoid Water Damage in Bayfield, WI

August 30th, 2017 · No Comments

The summer days in Bayfield, WI, are numbered. The time when the kids go back to school is quickly approaching, and with it the lazy days at the lake are numbered. You’ve had one of the best summers in your cabin on the lake and now with summer ending you have to start closing everything down. You’ve heard horror stories from your neighbors about them returning to their cabins at the end of winter to find flood damage or the need for burst pipe cleanup. Your one goal is to not have a horror story of your own.

Before closing down the cabin for the winter you need to winterize it. Disconnect the power and shut the water off. Once the water has been shut off to both the inside and outside the lines need to be emptied. The easiest way to empty the lines is to run the faucet until no more water comes out. Once the lines have been emptied it is also best if the faucets are left open, that way if there is water in the line it has somewhere else to go instead of into your home. Any water that is left in the lines with no way out has the opportunity to freeze and cause larger problems for your Bayfield, WI, cabin come spring.

If even after all your preparation, you find yourself needing burst pipe cleanup or flood damage cleanup, give us at ServiceMaster Specialty Restoration Services a call and we’ll be there as soon as possible to help with the water extraction and water damage restoration process. The best you can do is work hard to get the water out of your home as quickly as possible to allow your belongings to start drying out. To help reduce the amount of damage you may face if disaster does strike is to cover your furniture and other belongings with plastic or store them off site of your cabin. But if these possibilities aren’t possible we can help you get your belonging dried out and restored to normal.
