Restoring a Church in St. Louis After Frozen Burst Pipe

At Pride Cleaning And Restoration, Inc., we take pride in our ability to restore properties to their former glory, especially in challenging situations. One such situation was the water damage restoration St. Louis project we recently completed for a church.

The Challenge: Icy Flooding

When we received the call from the church about water damage caused by a burst pipe during the harsh January freeze, we knew immediate action was necessary. The frozen pipe had burst, flooding the bathrooms and kitchen of the church with water. With temperatures dropping below zero, it was vital to act quickly to prevent additional damage and restore the sacred space.

Handling Frozen Pipe Burst in an Icy Bathroom and Kitchenette

From navigating the challenge of ice formations to implementing a tailored restoration plan, our approach ensured that the church’s cherished spaces were restored to their original state. These are the steps we took: 

  • Emergency Response: Our team sprang into action immediately upon receiving the call. We understand that every moment counts in such emergencies, so we wasted no time in dispatching our technicians to assess the situation and start the restoration process.
  • Assessment and Planning: Upon arrival, we thoroughly assessed the extent of the water damage. We identified the affected areas, including the bathrooms and kitchen, and made a restoration plan tailored to the specific needs of the church.
  • Water Extraction: Using cutting-edge equipment, we extracted the standing water from the affected areas. Our powerful pumps and vacuums ensured efficient water removal, even dealing with the challenge of ice formations dropping from the kitchenette countertop and bathroom sink due to frozen sink water.
  • Drying and Dehumidification: With the water removed, we focused on drying out the affected areas. Our industrial-grade dehumidifiers and air movers were used to get rid of the moisture from the air and surfaces, preventing mold growth and structural issues.
  • Cleaning and Sanitization: Once the area was thoroughly dried, we moved to cleaning and sanitizing the space. Our team used professional-grade disinfectants to ensure a safe and hygienic environment for the church’s congregation.
  • Restoration and Reconstruction: Finally, we moved forward to the restoration and reconstruction phase, repairing any damaged structures and restoring the church to its pre-damage condition. 

The Outcome: Church Prepared to Welcome Its Clergy and Congregation

Thanks to our quick and efficient response, the church was able to reopen its doors to the congregation in no time. Despite the challenges posed by the harsh winter weather, including the unexpected issue of ice formations dropping from the kitchenette countertop, our team at Pride Cleaning And Restoration, Inc. was able to successfully restore the sacred space, ensuring minimal disruption to the church’s activities.
