Nu-Gen Cleaning & Restoration
Water damage due to frozen pipes bursting is a frustrating problem that needs urgent fixing. In Crystal Lake, IL and the surrounding areas, winter is a time in which temperatures are exceptionally low, which makes the risk for frozen pipes high. Low temperatures can cause water inside the pipes to freeze, especially if the pipes are not insulated. The pressure caused by the ice within the pipes can lead to a burst, and excess water damage can occur.
Nu-Gen Cleaning & Restoration provides frozen pipe damage restoration services for properties affected by burst pipes in the Crystal Lake, IL area. With professional help from our technicians, water will be extracted from the property and the affected areas will be dried and restored.
How do Pipes Burst?
There are a number of causes of pipe bursts such as wear and tear and improper installation, but frozen pipes are the most common cause. When the outside temperatures are low, it can cause the water within your pipes to freeze, especially pipes in uninsulated areas like attics and basements. The ice within the pipe will expand and the pressure it causes will eventually lead to a pipe burst. Pipe bursts can spill an extensive amount of water in your home and quickly cause serious damage.
Burst Pipe Restoration
Water from a burst pipe can cause significant damage within a home because it quickly penetrates the surrounding furnishings and building materials. Materials that absorb the water are at risk for staining, corrosion, and warping and for structural materials like wood and drywall, there is a major risk for structural damage.
Mold growth is another problem that can occur with major water damage. Mold spores thrive when they have a source of moisture, and the presence of mold growth will only make the damage worse. Calling our professionals immediately for frozen pipe restoration is the best way to help limit the damage and prevent mold growth.

Excess water and moisture will be removed using our advanced water extraction equipment and we will set up air dryers and dehumidifiers to thoroughly dry wet areas and materials. Once the water is removed and the area is dried, we will clean and restore the area and check for mold growth.
