January Weather in Alexandria, Louisiana
January is just getting started and if you live in the Alexandria, Louisiana area you have already had and severe thunderstorms and almost freezing temperatures.
According to The American Red Cross, water has a unique property in that it expands as it freezes. This expansion puts tremendous pressure on whatever is containing it, including metal or plastic pipes. No matter the strength of a container, expanding water can cause pipes to break.
Pipes that freeze most frequently are:
- Water sprinkler lines, pipes that are exposed to severe cold, like outdoor hose bibs and swimming pool supply lines
- Water supply pipes in unheated interior areas like basements, crawl spaces, attics, garages, or kitchen cabinets.
- Pipes that run against exterior walls that have little or no insulation.
Whether it is the warm temperatures that bring on the rains that flood your home or business or the cold temperatures freezing and breaking your water pipes, remember, SERVPRO of Alexandria is always here to help. Please call us @ 318-427-7511 if you have such an emergency and our team of trained professionals will come to your home or business and restore your structure “Like it never even happened.”
SERVPRO of Alexandria teams up with the Salvation Army
Serving gumbo at the Salvation Army of Alexandria.
SERVPRO of Alexandria makes time to give back the our community. While we specialize in fire and water damage we take great strides to lend a helping hand in our community. Giving back in one form or another is what SERVPRO of Alexandria stands for.
Craig with the Salvation Army of Alexandria was extremely gracious as he allowed us into his kitchen and world. We purchased the ingredients and he cooked the food. The menu consisted of gumbo and cake. The people that were served could not have been happier and went as far as to shake the hands of our employees. All and all, it was a wonderful experience that we will definitely be apart of for years to come.
Helping those less fortunate than ourselves doesn't always mean mitigating water or fire damage in their homes. #salvationArmy #heroReady #community
