Wisconsin Freeze 2019
During the 2019 Polar Vortex, Madison, Wisconsin experienced plummeting temperatures of minus 26 degrees. Residents prepared for the storm, bundled up and took cover indoors, but that wouldn't stop the freeze from reaching inside. As the temperatures dropped, pipes burst inside homes and businesses. Home and business owners were facing a world of headaches and in need of professional restoration/mitigation services. A number of local restoration companies jumped to the opportunity to provide service for their community, unfortunately, there were not enough resources to provide service for everyone at once.
Shortly after 5 o’clock on February 1st, the crews at SERVPRO of Denver West received the notification that they would be traveling to Madison to provide restoration and mitigation services. The production crew packed their bags, filled the trailers with tools & specialty equipment and set out on the journey to Wisconsin.
A little tip from our SERVPRO Heroes
When a flood occurs, SERVPRO of Denver West professionals know that time is crucial. The longer floodwater sits and seeps into carpet, walls, and contents; the greater the chance is of mold forming and causing near to permanent structural damage. It is important to take action immediately after structure floods, if not you could be looking at a very costly restoration project.
- Remove water as soon as possible
- Dry out the wet areas using dehumidifiers and fans to move air around, discouraging the growth of mold.
- Freeze your assets or sensitive documents.
