SERVPRO Mitigates Water Damage to Shreveport Properties Following a Burst Frozen Pipe

When pipes freeze and burst in Shreveport residences, substantial water damages can result. While extreme temperature drops are less frequent, upcoming harsh winter conditions can come with unseasonably low temperatures that can impact poorly insulated pipes coming into the house. Often, homeowners do not recognize when inadequate protection of their water service exists until freezing occurs.

How Can Standing Water Get Extracted?

Once frozen pipes burst in Shreveport homes from over-pressurizing when ice blockages form, the resulting separation of the line or damage to connections can allow water to flow out unabated. Extraction is a vital portion of restoration and recovery after a water disaster like this, as pooling can occur rapidly as several hundred gallons can find their way to the house's flooring or structural cavities.

Can SERVPRO Complete Repairs?

As extensive and elaborate as the restoration process can be after a water disaster, it is often necessary for repairs and reconstruction to occur. With a general contractor license, we can provide many services to complete a comprehensive approach for your home or business. Some of the actions we can take as a one-stop-shop restoration company include:

  • Controlled demolition
  • Plumbing repairs
  • Roof tarping
  • Board-Up
  • Content relocation

How Can Damage Get Reduced When Emergencies Occur?

Understanding your home and its utilities is one way that you can prepare for disasters before they happen. While you can depend on our SERVPRO team to stay prepared for water emergencies and storm damages, knowing the location of your main water shutoff can reduce total losses while you wait for restorers to arrive.

With lows expected in the teens this winter, disasters like frozen pipes might be right around the corner. Let our SERVPRO of South Shreveport team help with efficient mitigation and drying solutions. Call us at (318) 865-4655.
