Frozen Pipes in Commercial Businesses

6/6/2023 (Permalink)

This past December, on Christmas Eve, SERVPRO® of Columbia County experienced something new. Across the CSRA, a record number of homes and businesses experienced severe water loss within a short period of time. Over 150 calls came in between December 24th and January 1st, however, that number doubled mid-January, when many holiday travelers returned home or opened their businesses.

Faster to Any Sized Disaster

Our teams leaped into action with the first call of what we now call the “silent storm” came through. With our expertise in the mitigation and restoration field, our resources were first delegated to helping hospitals, nursing homes, and schools. Commercial properties such as those cannot afford to be closed for too long, with unexpected durations. With the number of water supply sources, commercial properties such as these, if not winterized properly and sufficiently insulted, are at greater risk of burst pipes than even residential homes. SERVPRO® technicians worked tirelessly day and night to get many of these buildings back to working order.

In the future, if your commercial property experiences water loss due to frozen pipes, give SERVPRO® of Columbia County a call at 706-868-5441. A team of trained professionals will be onsite the same day to get your business back to preloss condition.
