Matteson Frozen Pipe Woes Got You? SERVPRO Can Help

Burst Pipes During Extended Cold Snap Require Water Removal In Matteson

Desperately cold weather in Matteson can result in frozen and broken pipes. The water then floods into your home at a most inconvenient time. A homeowner at this point needs a reliable water remediation company committed to responding 24 days a day, year-round to emergencies. Our highly-qualified team of trained technicians has the experience and the equipment to resolve the problem.

Winter weather patterns can be extreme, and when sustained below zero temperatures rupture plumbing lines in Matteson professional water removal is a necessity. Handling water losses even under the most challenging of situations is one of the cornerstones of our business. Once our crew arrives ready to turn off the water if necessary and to get directly on the job to remediate the damaged area to preloss condition eventually, and whenever possible.

Our SERVPRO team is made up of highly-qualified II certified individuals who work together not only to remove water and dry out saturated structural components but also take all steps necessary to restore your home to preloss condition. An assessment by an experienced crew chief or project manager after a frozen pipe event leads to a thorough project plan. Fully stocked service vehicles and crew stand ready to start the job immediately.

We begin water removal using pumps and extractors, using the generators we bring if the power is off. If the water damaged area holds furnishings or stored items we often pack them out to our production facility using the SERVPRO Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) for evaluation and specialized cleaning and drying. Removing the contents permits our crew to concentrate efforts in your home to evacuate the standing water and begin the structural drying.

Performing moisture measurement is a skill SERVPRO technicians learn during in-house training. This process helps identify wet areas needing special attention or even partial demolition. Drying goals are established so that after the job, you know your home is back to where you want it, "Like it never even happened." We take careful readings and also use thermal scanning to discover any hidden caches of water. None of the water that flooded after the pipes froze can remain, or progressive structural damage and the risk of mold damage might become a reality.

Once we are sure the standing water is removed entirely, the crew creates a drying perimeter with air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers. Drying goals are set with the moisture readings as data, and SERVPRO employees adjust the equipment throughout the process to achieve the goals. We carefully monitor the drying levels.
