Now that the fall season is officially here, the weather all across the country will be changing, and temperatures will slowly start to drop. Unfortunately, fall is the season where pipe freezes are most likely to occur. For instance, the weather may be warm, and you have not yet turned your furnace on, but suddenly the temperature drops below freezing overnight. Or, you could be out of town when the cold weather arrives and come home to a mess.

If your pipes freeze early in the season, it is wise to call a company that specializes in water damage restoration in Raleigh, such as SERVPRO. When water freezes inside a pipe, the ice expands and can cause a crack in the plumbing. It only takes a small break to douse hundreds of gallons into your structure. Once this occurs, our highly trained team can help you by providing the following:

  • Water Damage Restoration
  • Water Removal Services
  • Water Damage Repairs
  • Basement Flooding Cleanup
  • Sewage Cleanup

Once one of your pipes bursts, how much damage you incur will depend on where the break occurs. If it is on your ground level, then the moisture may have just filled your crawlspace. When water builds up in your crawlspace, we can use a submersible pump to pull it out. We can then set up dehumidifiers and air movers to dry the bottom part of your subfloor.

However, if the leak occurs on an upper level or your house has a basement, the problems could become more severe. For instance, if moisture leaks down from the ceiling of your basement or ground level, your ceiling materials, walls, and flooring could all get negatively affected.

If your pipes ever freeze early in the fall season, call SERVPRO of South Cary / Apex at (919) 615-1160.
