Armour Security utilities shutdown services are a preventative measure that includes draining down all water systems and switching off the gas and electricity services.
To prevent water damage caused by burst pipes or metal pipe theft, it is essential to drain down all water systems properly. This process involves shutting off the main water supply, opening all faucets and toilets, and then utilizing the drain valves to completely drain the system.
Furthermore, knowing the potential risks associated with Legionella bacteria growth in stagnant, unused water reservoirs is crucial.
