Below zero temps cause the seasons first pipe-freeze for homes and businesses in the Chicago-land area

ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons provides water damage restoration services to properties with pipe freeze and water pipe bursts in Chicago-land after record sub-zero temperatures.

As the Chicago-land area is plunged into what is now being called the “Siberian Express” and pipe freeze sets in, ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons is responding to calls for Water Damage Restoration Services in homes and businesses spanning from Chicago to Oak Park and Evanston to Glencoe.  The majority of the water damages stem from water-line breaks.  Water-line breaks are usually a direct result of water pipes that have burst from expansion due to a warm up, especially after a deep freeze.  “We usually don’t see this kind of water damage until January,” said Sam Simon, disaster restoration manager for ServiceMaster By Simons.  “and so far, this is the coldest winter I’ve seen in some time.”

Preparing against pipe freeze

ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons staff reached out to current customers.  We reminded them to safeguard against pipe freeze by performing a number of preventative measures, including turning off exterior pipe-spigots from inside.  Insulating water pipes that run along exterior walls and also opening faucets so that a small stream of water continuously runs also makes a big difference.  These few measures can go a long way in preventing pipe-freeze and the subsequent pipe breaks that occur.
