Frozen, Burst, and Broken Pipes
Frozen, burst, and broken pipes can cause a lot of problems for your University City home or business. When temperatures drop below freezing, the water in the pipes can freeze and expand, thus leading to pipe bursts. Frozen sprinkler lines are a common cause of basement flooding and water damage in the winter months. Sprinkler pipes will often freeze which leads to a pipe burst beneath the surface of the ground. It is common for the water from the pipe burst to leak into your basement through window wells and even walls.

Flood waters are a major offender when it comes to extensive water damage situations however, in most cases it is the often overlooked areas that cause the most problems. Broken faucets, unresolved moisture problems, faulty plumbing, ignored drain and sewer systems, a frozen, broken or leaky pipe, a toilet or sink overflow, a slab leak, refrigerator, water heater, dishwasher or washing machine, or flooded basement, attic or crawlspace due to storms are all inconveniences can lead to major headaches for the home or business owner in University City. Putting off repairs can be extremely costly as water damage can lead to structural decline and most commonly, mold growth and content damage.
Several years ago, I received a phone call from my daughter..."Mom!!! The basement's flooded!!!" Not what I wanted to hear, nor what I expected...it was sewage! After a few chaotic moments, I contacted my insurance company. They came, they saw, they suggested I contact a cleaning and restoration company and gave me some options. I didn't feel comfortable with the companies they suggested so I went out on my own. I contacted Pride Cleaning and Restoration. They wasted no time, even though I was quite a distance away. They arrived the next day and started in on the monumental task of cleaning and preparing my very large basement (1,200 sq. ft.) for restoration. They worked closely with my insurance company and the construction crew I had chosen. They always included me in their decisions and explained what was being done. The price was no more than I expected and the work was professional. I most highly recommend this company." - L.L.

3 Classifications of Flood Damage
White, Grey and Black. Each present their own degree of difficulty when it comes to Water Damage in University City. White water is the water that comes into a business or resident for cleaning or consumption. Black water is the sewage that goes out. Grey water is somewhere in between the two.
Flood damage from broken pipes or overflown sinks etc. are more of a nuisance and generally will not present any real danger to health and life. Grey Water, however, is often caused by dishwasher or washing machine leaks, or even sump pump failures and can contain certain types of contaminants which could lead to sickness and structural damage.
Black Water is the worst of the three. It can contain dangerous bacteria and fungi. Black Water can come from any source. Most commonly an overflowing toilet or sewage pipe breaks. These types of condition require immediate action as soon as possible. The quicker the control and cleanup, the less likely the total loss of content and property. Black Water can prevent restoration if left untreated.
We suggest you take the following steps to help eliminate more severe structural damage or the development of mold.
If the source is evident and safely accessible, shut off the main valve or close the window or door from which water is getting into the property.
Remove all valuables that can be damaged.
Remove furniture from affected area.
Move as much off the wet carpet or floor as possible, especially objects with metal or wooden legs or supports. These items will stain the carpet or hardwood floors when wet.
