We Finally Got Our First Snow of the Year, and More is Coming this Weekend!

Central Oregon residents, brace yourselves – winter has officially arrived, bringing with it our first snowfall of the year. As the snow continues to blanket our region, it’s essential to be prepared for the challenges that come with the cold. Frozen pipes are a common concern during this season, and if you find yourself facing a water damage disaster, Central Oregon Disaster Restoration (CODR) is here to help.

Preventive Measures to Avoid Freeze Breaks:

  • Insulate Exposed Pipes: Ensure that pipes in unheated areas, such as basements, crawl spaces, and attics, are properly insulated. This can be a key step in preventing pipes from freezing.
  • Keep the Heat On: Maintain a consistent temperature in your home, even when you’re away. This helps prevent the pipes from reaching freezing temperatures.
  • Allow Faucets to Drip: Allowing faucets to drip slowly can relieve pressure in the pipes, reducing the risk of freezing.
  • Seal Cracks and Openings: Identify and seal any gaps or cracks in walls, windows, and doors to prevent cold air from entering your home.
  • Disconnect Hoses: Before the freeze sets in, disconnect and drain outdoor hoses. This can prevent water from backing up into the pipes and causing them to burst.

What to Do If You Have a Broken Pipe:

  • Turn Off Water Supply: Locate and turn off the main water supply to your home to minimize water damage.
  • Call CODR for Immediate Assistance: Contact Central Oregon Disaster Restoration (CODR) at 541-318-7853 as soon as possible. Our emergency response team is available 24/7, 365 days a year.
  • Document the Damage: Take photos or videos of the affected areas before any cleanup or restoration efforts begin. This documentation may be useful for insurance claims.
  • Avoid Electrical Appliances: Do not use electrical appliances or fixtures in areas affected by water damage to prevent the risk of electric shock.
  • Wait for Professional Assessment: Let CODR’s experts evaluate the extent of the water damage and begin the process of removing moisture immediately.
