How To Thaw Frozen Pipes In The Home

Article Summary: 

Property owners can thaw frozen pipes in the home by locating the frozen pipe, turning on the faucet, thawing near the faucet, and thawing exposed pipes. The best practice is to start closer to the faucet and work down towards the frozen section, rather than starting closer to the blockage. Hair dryers can also be used to thaw accessible pipes. PuroClean is a leading commercial and residential restoration franchising company that offers fire and water cleanup and restoration services, mould mitigation and remediation, and biohazard cleanup and removal throughout the US and Canada. Electric heat tape can be applied directly to the pipe, while hot towels can be wrapped around the frozen pipe.

Inaccessible pipes can be thawed by turning the heat up in the home, using an infrared lamp, or cutting off the section of the drywall in front of the frozen pipe. Proper safety measures must be taken when using electrical equipment.
