Water Damage In An Office Building
Due to the recent cold spell that Fairfield County has experienced, temperatures have been dipping back below freezing, especially at night. These low temperatures, much like the entire winter season, can bring issues like frozen pipes with them.
One office building in the area was having issues with their heating system. After getting the issue checked out, they found that one piece of the system had failed, and needed replacement. Due to the temperatures trending warmer, the issue was not deemed to be of high importance. Then the weather got cold again…
Once temperatures had dropped, the internal temperature of the building dropped significantly. This led to not one, but two pipes freezing and bursting. Water flowed out on the second floor, which seeped down to the first floor. When employees arrived the next morning, they noticed that the carpet was waterlogged.
