Now that the weather is warming up, it seems like the extreme freezing temperatures are just a distant memory. However, it is important to remember just how rough Central Illinois winters can be on a building, especially when it comes to the pipes. The attached image shows exactly what can happen to water pipes when a home or business owner is not prepared, and it isn’t a pretty picture. The pipe here literally split, leaving a huge opening for water to flow out. Not only does something like this call for repairs to the source, but to every affected area around it.
Luckily, if you fail to plan for the cold or if your plan fails, you can always get a hold of SERVPRO® to help make it "Like it never even happened."
