Hotel water damage Caution Floor is Wet

When water freezes it expands in volume by 9%. This increase in pressure can cause your pipes to break at a weak spot causing water to come rushing out the break. Important steps to follow if you ever encounter such experience are:

Step 1: Locate your main water shut off valve and turn it off to stop the flow of water. 

  • For houses on well water: if you are unable to locate your main water shut off, the other solution is to shut off your well in order to stop the water. 

Step 2: Call your most trusted restoration experts to analyze and start the restoration process to ensure no further damage, such as mold growth, occurs. 

Step 3: Call your plumber to fix your broken pipes. If you need assistance with locating a plumber SERVPRO will always guide you in the right direction.
