Frozen Pipe Repair and Flood Cleanup in Elk Grove Village, IL

(847) 558-7765

In Elk Grove Village, IL, and the surrounding areas, winters can be harsh, featuring a lot of snow and severely cold temperatures. Because of this weather, there’s a good chance for frozen pipes to occur. With cold enough temperatures, water that is inside the pipes will freeze into ice, expanding in size. This expansion places pressure on the pipes. With enough pressure, the ice will burst open the pipe, spread water throughout the property, and result in water damage.

ProTech Restoration can help those in Elk Grove Village, IL, and the surrounding areas with such damage with the frozen pipe damage restoration services we provide. Our professionals clean up the mess burst pipes create and restore the damaged property it has affected. To do this, we first extract water, dry the area, and then work on restoring the damaged materials.

Knowing how low temperatures can get during the winter in the Elk Grove Village area, it is crucial to look out for any frozen pipes in your home or building, because frozen pipes often burst and cause serious water damage on your property.

Water Damage Restoration Services by ProTech Restoration

If you do experience a pipe burst on your property, the first thing you should do is shut the water off. After that, get in touch with us for our frozen pipe damage restoration services. It is important to act right away, because water damage worsens with time. With our advanced equipment, we will eliminate any standing water and excess moisture from affected materials. Then, we will restore the damaged areas and check for mold growth.

Preventing Frozen Pipes

You can’t stop freezing temperatures in the winter, but you can prevent frozen pipes. If you follow these steps, you can reduce the risk of frozen pipes and avoid pipe bursts on your property:

  • Turn on your faucets to drip water. The constant movement within the pipes will help prevent the water from freezing.
  • To keep pipes beneath sinks warm enough, open the cabinet doors so that the heat enters.
  • To insulate pipes that are in vulnerable places, use pipe insulation or electrical tape.
  • As long as it’s deemed safe, heat uninsulated pipes by placing a space heater in the area.
  • During the winter, bring your garden hoses inside, and turn off the outside water supply.


Thawing Frozen Pipes

Low water pressure and icy or frosty pipes are indicators that a pipe has frozen. To find and thaw the frozen pipe, follow these steps:

  • Locate the line with the frozen pipe.
  • Locate the frozen section by following the pipe line.
  • Check for ice, frost, or bulges on the pipes.
  • Use a hair dryer or heat lamp to thaw the pipe. Don’t use any kind of open flame to thaw it.
  • If you need to, remove the drywall to access the frozen pipe.
  • At the end of the pipe line with the frozen pipe, turn the faucet on to a trickle.

Rating 5 5 Star Disaster Restoration Rating

"Had a great experience working with Marshall when we had an emergency leak at my mom’s house. He immediately started working to salvage what we could. I felt like he absolutely understood the urgency, and treated my mom like his own! He and the rest of the team were super easy to work with and answered our (many) questions along the way. They were very transparent about the process which was extremely helpful as this was our first time with this kind of issue in 30+ years of owning the house. We so appreciate ProTech for aiding us during our time of need."

"My experience with ProTech was wonderful from the first visit thru the last. Ben did a great job of evaluating the work that needed to be done and explaining everything to me. Frank and Sergio were great to work with because they were pleasant AND they were so very careful about everything they did. All in all, I give the ProTech team an A+!"

"I had a pipe burst and subsequent leakage into my basement. At first I thought that we maybe stopped it in time since we could not see obvious damage but Marshall at ProTech said it would be a good idea to check it out anyway and came out within a couple of days. I’m so glad he did since there was more damage than we anticipated. Marshall explained the damage thoroughly using his imaging techniques and provided a quote within the day. Pricing was good and our insurance accepted the proposal immediately. The ProTech team was able to do the water damage mitigation about a week after the incident and on a Saturday no less. Everything was done super quickly and professionally. While I do not want to deal with any more water damage, the repairs using ProTech were painless. I would recommend this company and especially Marshall to anyone in the same situation."
