    Tips for Thawing Frozen Pipes and Preventing Water Damage

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Turning on your faucet only to find a slight trickle of water is a telltale sign that your pipes are in danger of bursting. Fortunately, there are several ways you can prevent this outcome.

    If this happens to you, it is recommended that you leave the faucet on and turn off the main water supply. To identify the location of the frozen pipe, try turning off all the faucets in your home. The frozen pipe is most likely near an outside wall or crawl space. Watch this video for more tips on how to thaw and prevent frozen pipes.

    What Is Commercial Air Duct Cleaning?
    Commercial air duct cleaning is a valuable yet overlooked service. As research continues to show that indoor air pollution is a real and growing problem, commercial air duct cleaning is gaining favor among businesses. The service involves eliminating any contaminants that are in your building’s HVAC system, which can include chemical agents, bacteria, and pollen. After conducting a thorough inspection of your building’s HVAC system, a professional technician will determine the best method of cleaning it out. Depending on your business’ unique circumstances, the technician may recommend that you have your HVAC systems routinely cleaned.

    How Can It Benefit My Employees?
    The term “sick building syndrome” refers to a widespread problem in which people raise concerns about health or comfort issues that seem to be connected to time spent indoors. Numerous factors have been attributed to sick building syndrome, from inadequate ventilation to poor indoor air quality. Commercial buildings have been known to accumulate contaminants in the air that can negatively affect employees and occupants, who suffer negative health effects from circulating dust and mold. By improving the air quality with a commercial air duct cleaning, you ensure that your employees breathe easier and work better. You can also reduce the number of unproductive sick days.

    Tips for Protecting Your Home's Plumbing from Freezing Temperatures

    Last updated 1 year ago

    The winter months might be associated with the holidays, family gatherings, and joyous memories, but they are also associated with freezing temperatures and household plumbing problems. Your water pipes expand and contract based on exterior temperatures, and when water freezes, it expands—which increases the chances of a leaky or burst water pipe. Check out these tips for more information about how to protect your home’s plumbing from freezing temperatures.

    Seal Foundational Cracks and Holes 
    Cracks and holes in your home’s foundation can allow cold air to reach your water pipes. A good way to avoid this is to seal all cracks and holes in the outside walls and foundation near your water pipes with waterproof caulk. You may also consider opening up the cabinets near your sink pipes so that the warm air from your heater may circulate around them and reduce the chances of freezing.

    Insulate Your Pipes 
    Ideally, all water pipes should be placed in heated areas and out of attics or crawl spaces, but many older homes still have water pipes that are exposed to cold air. Reduce your chances of a plumbing problem by wrapping your water pipes in foam-pipe insulation and securing it with duct tape. You may also consider wrapping the connections of your pipes with heat tape and placing rigid foam board insulation between any water pipes and nearby walls.

    Let the Water Drip 
    Opening up a faucet slightly will alleviate the excessive pressure that builds up when freezing occurs and ultimately reduce the chances of a pipe burst. Don’t worry about the cost; a slow drip will not have much of an effect on your monthly water bill.

    Whether one of your water pipes has frozen or completely burst, the professionals with DASO Restoration are here to help. Give us a call at (718) 893-0252 to find out more about our water damage, mold remediation, and fire cleanup services. We also offer bed bug remediation.

    How to Deal with Mold in Your Home

    Last updated 1 year ago

    While there is still much debate over the health effects of mold exposure, most doctors agree that mold inside your home can affect children as well as those prone to asthma and allergies. This video provides a number of tips for dealing with mold in your home.

    It is important to stop any leaks in your bathroom or kitchen at the first sign of a problem in order to decrease the likelihood of mold growth. If you start to notice black spots or a white powdery substance on your shower walls or on tile, you may consider using an environmentally-friendly cleanser.

    However, the best way to ensure you and your family are safe from mold is to contact a professional for assistance. Get rid of all your mold problems by contacting DASO Restoration at (718) 893-0252 today! We also provide services for fire damage and bed bug remediation.
