SERVPRO for your winter disaster-

Winter has arrived and the freezing temperatures, snowy days, and ice storms have come with it. This cold weather, snow, and ice storms can cause major damage to your home or business property. When these types of disasters strike, immediate action is necessary to prevent additional damage to your property. SERVPRO of Manassas has the experience, expertise, and the resources to remediate damage caused by winter weather. Below are a couple of the common damages we deal with during the winter. 

Frozen Pipes?

The freezing tempurtues accompanied by the weather can cause your pipes to freeze and burst. In general, your pipes are more likely to freeze below 20 degrees Fahrenheit but regardless you should be careful once it drops below freezing. The resulting damage can be very destructive. Outdoor pipes or pipes in an unheated areas will freeze more easily if they are not properly insulated. We recommend shutting these off if possible or insulting them if needed. SERVPRO of Manassas can quickly and safely repair water damage caused by frozen pipes.

Roof Damages?

Snow and ice can create the environment for significant damage to occur to your gutters or roof, and many times both of them together. The additional weight created by the dense snow and layers of ice that build up can cause a roof to collapse if not taken care of properly. When there’s a cold snap, the melted ice drips water that can get into cracks and small spaces. When this occurs it eventually expands once it has frozen, causing larger cracks to be created and even more damage. The repetition of this cycle can create major damage you should be watching our for and examining before each winter season.
