A home in Detroit lost everything due to frozen pipes bursting. https://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/detroit/2015/01/12/detroit-home-frozen
How do you get frozen pipes?
Frozen pipes are a huge problem when they burst and cause a lot of money in damages.
Frozen pipes occur when property pipes are unprotected and exposed to extreme cold temperatures. When water changes from a liquid to solid form it expands. The expansion in the pipes create a bubble that begins to produce pressure and can causes a tearing. If the frozen pipe is not discovered in time the pipe will begin to rupture and bursting out water into the property.
