Central Illinois is seeing extreme cold temperatures this week brought to us by the polar vortex in partnership with a very active jet stream. This combination is bringing below freezing temperatures and wind chills in the negatives. Temperatures like this make it difficult for your home’s furnace system to keep up, and could completely fail all together. We often see this type of weather cause frozen pipes that break causing major water damage to your home of office.
To be prepared for this type of event. Make sure you know where your water shut0ff valve is located to minimize the damage. Also, make sure you have important phone numbers on hand to quickly contact such as: a plumber, your insurance agent, water service provider, and of course Peerless Cleaning and Restoration Services.
If you are away from your home, or know someone who is away, please check on the home often. Unoccupied homes tend to be the largest losses because when a pipe breaks, no is around to notice it. This allows water to pour out over a long period of time, causing greater damage to the home.

You can call us anytime of day and our experts are always standing by. If you experience water damage, give us a call at 1-800-879-7056.
