LaChance Brothers Excavating Discusses the Effects of Winter Weather on Unoccupied Homes

eTradeWire News/10759983
NORTHVILLE, Mich. - eTradeWire -- Do you own a home that's unoccupied for an extended period of time?

A rental home or vacation home may not receive the same level of regular maintenance and upkeep as primary residences, putting it at risk of damage from low temperatures, heavy snow and strong winds.

Frozen septic pipes are common in unoccupied homes when temperatures drop below freezing. Frozen pipes can cause blockages, leading to backups and damage to the septic system. In addition, the pressure from ice buildup can cause cracks and leaks in the septic tank, which can be costly to repair.

To prevent damage, you should take several steps including:

1.     Having your septic system inspected and maintained regularly to ensure it's in good condition.

2.     Avoid flushing items that can clog your septic system, such as diapers, wipes, and feminine hygiene products. These items can cause blockages and backups, which can exacerbate the effects of freezing temperatures on the system.
