Will Frozen Pipes Cause Water Damage in Your Nashua Home This Winter?
Nashua's Technicians Discuss Flood Damage and Frozen Pipe Problems
Every year, winters in Nashua can bring about severe, cold weather. When the temperature drops, flood damage and frozen pipes can cause you problems and force you to call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. When water freezes, it expands and can cause your pipes to crack. Once there is a hole inside your plumbing system, gallons of water can pour into your living area quickly. Should you leave moisture for too long, you may be dealing with mold inside your Nashua home.
Once water starts to leak the issues can get much worse as time goes by. Mitigating problems with flood damage or a frozen pipe in Nashua is our SERVPRO team's specialty. When we first arrive at your house, we figure out exactly where your plumbing system failed. Once we find the crack in the pipe, we often shut off your water; then we call in a certified plumber to fix the crack where the pipes froze. After the original problem gets repaired and there is not any more moisture entering the home, we can begin the restoration process. Before we begin mitigating issues inside your building, we inspect the affected area and make sure there are no potential safety hazards for our workers or your family.
Once any issues like falling drywall or slick floors get mitigated, we then figure out which of your building materials and contents got wet. If items get saturated like your carpet or pad, we start with removing the ruined objects. After removing destroyed items, we extract water from porous materials such as carpets and fabrics. After we have removed all of the water we could while it is in its liquid form, we set up air movers and dehumidifiers to speed up the natural evaporation process. We keep the equipment set up until our moisture sensors indicate that levels are back to preloss conditions.
If a pipe inside your home ever freezes and breaks, call in the professionals at SERVPRO of Nashua at (603) 889-2311 any time of the day.
