When water freezes into ice, it expands with enough pressure to rupture a pipe. If undetected, leaks can cause significant damage to floors, carpeting, drywall, and fiberglass insulation.

When leaking or burst pipes strike, ServiceMaster Restoration by Wills is the company to call to dry out, clean up, and restore your living space.
