It’s that time of year here in here in New Hampshire (NH) when the temperatures are low, and the heat is turned up high. Frozen ponds give way to mid-day ice hockey matches, and Sunday afternoons are filled with seasonal sports and get-togethers. Here in the Granite State, many home and business owners may forget that not only do the chilly winter months bring-forth frosty air, but also frozen pipes. Keeping a simple “to-do” list of seasonal tasks can assist home and business owners during the busy holiday season and aid in the prevention of an unexpected pipe burst or winter issue. Keep family and friends your priority this holiday season, not the need for cleaning flooded buildings.
The Manchester business was closed for a few days due to a power outage from a recent wind storm. When the power was restored to the area and to the structure, the owner went to the business to check on the interior conditions of the building. Everything inside of the business seemed in order for having lost power for a few days, however, when the owner made his way to the hallway where the bathroom was located, he was greeted by a large amount of water. Concerned about what had caused the flood damage to the bathroom and hallway, the business owner contacted his insurance company right away to start a claim. An expert in cleaning flooded buildings was needed immediately. The insurance company recommended Soil-Away Cleaning and Restoration Services to come out and inspect the water damage. Soil-Away flood cleanup crews were at the Manchester business within an hour.
Soil-Away’s flood damage restoration experts were quick to respond and get the flooding under control. Due to the power outage for several days and below freezing temperatures, the bathroom pipe froze for an extended period of time, which caused the bathroom pipes to burst. Once the water damage was assessed, a plan-of-action was created and crews immediately began extracting the water from the effected hallway and bathroom. Commercial drying equipment, such as dehumidifiers and fans, were set-up to dry-out the area and reduce moisture throughout the hallway and bathroom. The business owner was elated with how quickly Soil-Away crew members worked and that his business was back to normal.
