Experiencing an Ice Dam on Your Roof?

Stay at ground level, don't let snow pile too high, and use a plastic shovel.

Frozen pipes due to below freezing temperatures.

Winter Weather Worries

Winter weather can bring about more issues than just slippery roads and a sidewalk to shovel. SERVPRO of Altoona is located in central Pennsylvania. If you reside in the area, then you know you live where temperatures sink below freezing, so you are at risk for frozen pipes, which can create a major disaster to your home or property. 

Frozen pipes occur when exposed to cold weather, such as those outside your house, or in areas such as basements, attics, garages, or kitchen cabinets. A frozen pipe can burst at the point where the ice blockage inside the pipe is located, but typically the rupture is caused from the backflow of pressure between the water source and the blockage. 

If winter weather causes water damage to your home or property, call us at 814-946-0119. 

SERVPRO of Altoona can create an Emergency Ready Profile for any residential or commercial property.
