Pipe Burst at Local Clarksville Restaurant
Late last week, we responded to the complaint of flooding inside a local restaurant in the area. Water covered much of the customer dining space, leading to an obvious issue for the restaurant when trying to serve its clients (see image above). As it turns out, there was an issue with freezing water inside the pipes located in the ceiling of the building, which caused an emergency sprinkler head to burst and water to erupt into the dining space.
Contrary to popular belief, water pipes don’t burst just because of the H2O performing a phase change into ice. When water freezes inside a pipe, pressure begins to build up internally within the walls of the pipe because water expands as it freezes. This pushes water inside the pipe toward the faucet or valve, causing increased water pressure which eventually can cause a pipe to rupture.
In order to reduce damage costs and have a speedy and effective turn around to fix the damage from the burst pipe, the restaurant called SERVPRO of Montgomery County.
Our highly trained restoration specialists performed an inspection of the restaurant to determine the scope and extent of the water damage and performed tests to determine how far the moisture traveled, that way we could ensure proper and complete restoration of the building. We removed the water through extraction (we use pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove the water) and set up air movement in combination with dehumidifiers. After restaurant hours and through the weekend our construction team was hard at work replacing water damaged drywall and painting the walls of the restaurant.
Our team was able to effectively resolve the restaurant’s water damage issue within no time, allowing the business to run as normal and continue to serve its customers with little downtime.
