Old Superfresh building in Kennett
2018 has been off to a brutally cold start. Across our region home owners and businesses have been struggling with frozen and burst pipes. One such incident occurred for one of our local property managers in the Kennett Square area. On New Year’s Day they had a two inch sprinkler line burst in a storefront that they are currently in the process of preparing for new tenants. They called SERVPRO of Kennett Square/ Oxford and within an hour we had a crew of 12 men on site to begin mitigation.
Our crew spent 6.5 hours battling the frigid temperatures to dry out the structure. We brought in a large generator and supplemental lighting due to the power being down to the building and multiple pieces of extracting equipment, including a truck mounted unit, to pump out the water as quickly as possible. At SERVPRO of Kennett Square/ Oxford our goal is to limit the time that a business has to keep their doors closed during and after any size disaster.
