What Is Winterization?

Winterization is a service performed as a preventative measure to prevent and protect against damages caused by freezing. The winterization process prevents the plumbing system and all components of the system from the effects of freezing temperatures. This is accomplished by completely removing all water from the plumbing system including the water heater, all piping, all fixtures; and then filling the fixtures with anti-freeze.

Winterization is normally performed on vacant properties so that the property will not have to have utilities maintained, specifically heating.

Winterization may be performed as the sole service or performed along with other services. As an example, initial secure orders often request winterization, lock change, debris removal, etc.
