Frozen Pipes can cause major damage
Winter can bring many issues to the area regarding water and fire restoration. Many commercial buildings have been impacted by frozen pipes in the past and it's not too late for those frigid temperatures to hit Louisville this year.
A large university in our area had a number of dorms and class rooms affected by water damage due to frozen pipes last year. This happens for a number of reasons, but the majority that we see are either unoccupied buildings or seldom used buildings like churches and dorms. These vacant buildings become targets for frozen pipes because usually the heat is turned off or extremely low. Although some of these disasters are unavoidable, many can be prevented by turning the heat up, or leaving the water in the pipes running by slightly opening faucets.
When the unavoidable happens, call the people at SERVPRO of Southwest Jefferson County and we can help make a very stressful and chaotic situation become more tolerable.
