Winter Storm Wreaks Havoc

Kitchen Demolition A pipe break caused significant damage to this homeowners kitchen.

Recently a winter storm ran through the Chicagoland area as well a majority of the country. This intense storm brought about high winds, cold temperatures and plenty of snow fall. As a result of this storm, thousands of people ended up with frozen and broken pipes in their homes. SERVPRO's all across the country did their best to keep up with the volume of work. As you can see in the image attached, this home suffered a pipe break on the second level of the home that made its way down into the kitchen. In the image, you can see that the kitchen was almost entirely gutted, from the ceiling to the walls to the cabinets. In order to properly dry out the affected areas, those materials needed to be removed. All of the customers belongings that were in the cabinets or in the way were carefully packed away in boxes and moved to an unaffected area of the house. By doing this we limit the possibility of damaging their stuff and eliminate any possible cross contamination.
