Frozen Pipes and Water Damage in Minneapolis--And SERVPRO Arrives for Mitigation
The incredible severe freezing weather wreaked havoc by bursting pipes in many homes in the Minneapolis area. Our customer was out of town, maybe vacationing in Florida when his neighbor called with the bad news of frozen pipes leading to water damage. The plumbing could not contain the dripping water after the expanding ice split the copper pipes. The water stains visible on the ceiling below the leaks in the master suite bathroom were quickly dealt with by our SERVPRO water damage restoration technicians. With the supply lines turned off, our team performed a controlled demolition on the ruined ceiling areas. Once the hazard was taken out and discarded our team can then use heated air movers and dehumidifiers to eliminate most of the moisture before it could cause secondary water damage to unaffected materials and contents. The good neighbor know who to call for emergency assistance, after all, We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
