Why should I turn off my water when I go on vacation?
Mold problems while on vacation.
St. George is known for its "Snow Bird" community who only come south when the snow starts to hit the northern Utah. But even when visiting loved ones during the holidays there are some tips to take into consideration. Mold grows when there is moisture present in the home.
- Turn off water when leaving home - If I pipe breaks then the water won't continue to leak.
- Leave the heat on - Many homeowners want to save money on heat. Do not lower heat past 55 degrees or pipes may freeze.
- Remove hoses from house - Outside hoses will freeze first and spread from there into the house next.
