Frozen Pipe Damage Restoration

Anyone living in the Chicagoland area understands that winter weather can be treacherous. The cold air, snow, ice, and occasional winter storm can leave you dreaming of warmer weather. The cold weather can also cause damage to your home, especially your water pipes.

Frozen pipes can burst, leading to extensive water damage in your home. Water damage to your home or business may be widespread, depending on where the pipe broke and how long it took to stop the water flow. In addition to the physical damage that a pipe break causes, it also raises the potential for mold growth at the property.

Physical Water Damage

Physical water damage will include more than just the burst pipe and the damage it caused. It will also include damage to carpeting, walls and baseboards, cabinetry, and furniture that may have gotten wet. The property will need to be cleaned and professionally dried to protect further damage from occurring to the house. Professional drying will also ensure that the moisture that may have seeped behind the walls is also dried up, preventing mold growth.

Black Mold Is Dangerous

Black mold is a dangerous type of mold that can be found in any area of the world. Black mold likes to grow in damp, dark places. Black mold has an enormous appetite and will consume anything, including wood, drywall, and cloth. Once it begins to eat, it begins to reproduce rapidly. Black mold travels as a spore, making it easy to spread through a home. It is essential to check the air in the home to ensure it is free from spores. Inhaling black mold spores has been associated with increased asthma attacks and respiratory illnesses. If you have had any folding or water damage in your home, you should have the property checked for mold and complete mold remediation if necessary.
