Water turns to Ice overnight - Woodburn, Oregon

Chipping away in freezing temps in Woodburn, Oregon

When a water line breaks in a house it is easier to mitigate and repair versus a water line breaking in a frozen food distribution warehouse. Over the course of one night the amount of water released from the line froze 46,824 sq. ft. of concrete which is ¾ of the total 90,000 sq. ft. of the property. Our technicians worked in -5 degree Fahrenheit temperature for 4-5 weeks, with safety being a top priority.

Freezing temperature for water is 32 degrees Fahrenheit. It can take 2-6 hours in a household freezer for water to become solid. With the temperature at -5 degrees Fahrenheit the water leak froze instantly when it hit the concrete flooring.

A water removal and water cleanup of this magnitude can take up to one and a half months to restore. SERVPRO of Salem West is efficient and professional in any situation.
