Oh No! The Pipes are Frozen
There’s no better way to escape the harsh cold Main Line winter than a vacation to a nice and warm location. But unfortunately for this older couple their heater decided it would take a vacation too, and by vacation I mean the heater stopped working.
Once the heater malfunctioned, temperatures inside the home dropped quickly and the kitchen sink supply line had frozen and burst. When they arrived back home the picture shows what they found in their basement recreation room. What a mess!
Luckily for them, their homeowner’s insurance company told them to call SERVPRO of The Main Line and we arrived that day to clean up the mess. When the crew arrived they got right to work. Contents of the rec room were sorted, cleaned, and wet non-salvageable materials were removed and disposed of. Drying equipment was later set up and the basement was cleaned. The whole process was completed in a matter of hours by our experienced certified water damage technicians. The homeowners were still unpacking by the time the crew left for the evening.
REMEMEBER if you take a winter vacation this year; remember to have your heat on and working, but if something you cannot control happens remember that there is always someone here to help at SERVPRO of The Main Line.
