To be frank, absolutely we have no idea how much it cost to fix or replace a damaged laminated floor until we were into the actual scenario where the contractor showed up at our apartment and billed us such tremendous amount of money doing a job in less than an hour.

Due to the leaking fridge, we ended up spending too much money for the floor repairs. We didn’t realized that it caused much floor damaged already in the apartment where we previously lived. The good thing is we learned from that experience, from broken dishwasher because of low quality, cheap fridge, laminated cheap floor being installed by developer. Everything seems cheap except the location which primarily causes the property buyer in paying such huge amount of money. Imagine for 2 bedroom condo cost $460,000 for about 800 sq. ft. size.

Frigid Massachusetts winter temperatures and frequent snowstorms can lead to a number of sewer line and septic system issues. Even during a normal winter, freezing always poses a threat. Identifying and correcting the following potential risks greatly minimizes the chances of frozen sewer lines and septic systems, which are much more dangerous.

How to Prevent and Clear Frozen Sewer Lines and Septic Systems

Lack of snow cover

Snow keeps septic tanks and soil treatment areas insulated during the winter months, preventing frost from penetrating the deep soil layers. When you’re facing extreme cold with no snow, you may need to seek out other methods for keeping your septic tank and soil treatment areas insulated.
