Winter Storm Preparedness
With winter weather approaching and the likelihood for severe winter storms increasing, we here at SERVPRO Chesapeake North want you, and your home or business to be prepared ahead of the storm.
Frozen pipes that burst can cause catastrophic damage to any home, business or apartment complex. To prevent pipes from bursting there are several preventive measures that can be followed:
Drip your faucets! Even a small trickle of water moving through the pipes can prevent them from freezing.
Open kitchen and bathroom cabinets to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing.
Keep garage doors and other doors that lead to the outside closed to prevent the influx of cold air.
If you will be leaving your home during the cold weather make sure that you leave the heat on in your home (55 °F or higher)
If you experience bursting or leaking pipes this winter, we here at SERVPRO are Here to Help. Our franchise professionals are on standby 24 hours a day 365 days a year. We offer emergency water extraction, electronic drying, document drying and restoration, as well as mold prevention and mitigation.
