Question No cold water in kitchen and upstairs bathroom

Hello! I own a rental and my tenant is telling me there is no cold water coming out of the kitchen (downstairs) or the upstairs bathroom (just the faucet, shower is fine). I have read a lot of forums saying it could be the cartridge, but would that still be the case if it is on two different floors of the house? Also, it has been below freezing the past few days, so is that a possibility as well? Thank you!

Never mind. It was a frozen pipe like I thought! Tenant just told me it works.

Well, you'll need to protect that pipe from freezing again - because it could burst and result in extensive damage next time. You have to either get warm air to the pipe area OR apply a heating cable to the pipe.

or if you are in a pinch and are expecting extreme temps again, I suggest opening the tap for a pencil thin trickle. Moving water does not freeze
