Protect homes against elements


Householde­rs across Monklands are being urged to take action to ensure their properties and water pipes are protected ahead of winter.

Scottish Water has issued a reminder to property owners that preparing now for winter weather will help prevent problems such as burst pipes and flooding in the event of freezing temperatur­es.

The utility advises anyone with a home, holiday home or business premises to take action to heat, insulate and protect their properties, whether the property is old or new.

Peter Farrer, Scottish Water’s chief operating officer, said: “Now is the ideal time to prepare for the possibilit­y of severe weather. Taking action now can prevent the misery of damage to property and pipes in the months to come.

“By taking steps to heat, insulate and protect properties, customers can avoid the considerab­le headache and heartache caused by frozen or burst pipes.”
