Frozen Pipe Repair And Flood Cleanup In Mount Prospect, IL

(847) 558-7765

Because of the dangerous cold and harsh winter weather that is common in Mount Prospect, IL and the neighboring areas, there’s a high risk for frozen and burst pipes. Water inside the pipes will freeze into ice when temperatures are cold enough, expanding in size as more water freezes. As the ice expands, it puts pressure on the pipe and can cause it to burst open. Not only will there be damage to the pipe from the burst, but there will also be water damage to the property from the water and ice that spills out.

Serving Mount Prospect, IL, and the neighboring areas, ProTech Restoration offers frozen pipe damage restoration services to help homes and business that have been affected by burst pipes. Our professional technicians help by extracting excess water, drying the affected areas, and then restoring what was damaged.

Water Damage Restoration Services by ProTech Restoration

Frozen Pipes in Illinois

In many cases, frozen pipes will burst and spread water throughout your property. Knowing this, it is important to look out for any frozen pipes in your home or building.

If you find that a frozen pipe has burst in your home or business, promptly turn off the water supply. Afterwards, call us for our frozen pipe damage restoration services. You need to act quickly to prevent serious water damage. We will restore your property with our specialized equipment that extracts standing water and excess moisture from damaged materials such as furnishings, wood, and drywall. Once that extraction has finished, we move on to the restoration and check to make sure that there is no mold growth on your property.

Preventing Frozen Pipes

Cold temperatures aren’t preventable, but frozen pipes are. Use these steps to prevent your pipes from freezing up:

  • Turn your faucets on to a drip so that water movement is constant in your pipes.
  • Allow pipes beneath sinks to get heated by opening up the cabinet doors. Air will be able to circulate around the pipes and warm them up.
  • Pipes in vulnerable areas should be insulated with pipe insulation or electrical tape.
  • Pipes without insulation can be heated by placing a space heater in the area, but you should only do this if it’s safe.
  • During the winter, take your garden hoses inside, and turn the outside water supply off.

Thawing Frozen Pipes

Some indicators of a frozen pipe are low water pressure and icy/frosty pipes. To find where the frozen pipe is located and thaw it, follow these steps:

  • Figure out which pipe line has the frozen pipe.
  • Figure out where the pipe is frozen by tracing the pipe line.
  • Keep an eye out for any frost, ice, or bulges on the pipe.
  • Thaw the frozen pipe with a heat lamp or heat dryer. Always refrain from thawing it with any kind of open flame.
  • The faucet for the affected line should be turned on to a trickle.

When a frozen pipe bursts, there’s a lot to handle with the potential for major damage. Make sure you take the preventative measures to limit the risk of frozen pipes. If a frozen pipe in your property does burst, first, turn the water supply off.

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."
