With many of us heading off on winter getaways, making sure our homes are secure becomes all the more important. We’re always sure to throw the locks, set the alarms, and ask our neighbors to keep an eye out.
So you’re protected from the dangers outside your door – but what about the dangers inside?
There’s nothing like the sinking feeling of coming home from vacation to the sound of running water in your empty house. While a nightmare on the best of days, if you’re out when it happens, it could be catastrophic.
If there’s a problem while you’re away, nobody’s home to catch it. With nobody home to turn off the water when a pipe bursts, you’ve got some major flooding on your hands. Think of all the things in your home that would be ruined by a major flood – furniture, electronics, photographs… the list is endless. And that doesn’t even include the damage to walls, floors and the foundation itself. The structural damage alone could be in the tens of thousands.
The best way to avoid this kind of damage is preventing it in the first place.
Insulating your pipes is a great way to prevent this kind of damage from ever happening. When pipes get too cold, the water inside freezes and begins to expand, building up pressure inside the pipe. Just 1” of closed cell Foam it Green will give you an airtight R7 to help regulate temperature, and neutralize condensation.
Even better, our anti-microbial formula will prevent mold growth. Foam it Green does a great job of sticking to pipe materials, and you won’t have to worry about it ever sagging or deteriorating.
But why stop with the pipes?
Sealing up the surrounding area will keep the cold air out in the first place, saving you even more on energy bills. With just a couple hours and some Foam it Green, you can knock out the project and be done with it in a single afternoon.
When you seal up your house with Foam it Green, you can take those winter holidays with confidence. You’ll know that when you walk in that door at the end of your trip, everything will be just as you left it. You can kick off your shoes, and enjoy your warm, dry house – with nothing to worry about.
So give our specialists a call at 800-516-0949, and put your mind at ease this winter!
