We all have to be a little careful when it comes to keeping our houses and apartments safe during the winter.

And we’re in luck, because a plumber named Jeff was nice enough to share some tips in a video on TikTok that we should all pay attention to.

Jeff said, “First thing, guys, is this, know how to shut the water off to your house.”

Obviously, this is important because when pipes burst in winter and the water isn’t turned off, you’re gonna have a HUGE mess on your hands.

Jeff continued, “Turn the heat up in your house” and he added, “Make sure all the interior doors of your house are open” so heat will spread to every room.

Jeff also said it’s important to open cabinet doors and doors and curtains on your shower to let warm air reach the plumbing in your bathroom.

This is crucial stuff, people!

“Turn your water on,” he tells his viewers. “Let the water trickle a bit. Think about this: moving water doesn’t freeze as easily as non-moving water.”

“I hope these tips help you out and be safe out there,” he concludes.
