Heard of internal pipe corrosion?
Pipe corrosion can cause water damage.
Internal pipe corrosion can be an underlying cause of water damage. Once the metal pipes erode over time, their capacity to hold water may lessen. Depending on whether the loss of strength is general or at a certain area, this can eventually cause the pipes to burst, rupture, or leak and lead to a water damage.
Ensure that you are regularly maintaining the structure's pipes and that your company is following state regulations, which includes inspection compliance, so that you will be notified of any potential pipe corrosion.
Contact SERVPRO of Harlingen/San Benito if you have any questions or concerns! If you have suffered a water damage due to pipe corrosion, contact us at any time and our specialized team can begin the restoration process.

Clean Air means Healthy Lungs
Clean AC ducts can improve the environment and positively impact the health of those around you.
How does SERVPRO clean AC ducts? Well...
1. The process begins by using patented equipment, including a roto-scraper, which automatically adapts to the duct's shape and diameter while traveling through the duct, removing debris and filth before vacuuming begins.
2. Next a powerful push - pull air delivery and collection system transfers the debris from the ducting to a container.
3. Air is filtered through a HEPA filtration system, removing 99.7% of the particles in the airstream. HEPA filters capture debris and keep the indoor environment clean.
4. An optional process, a sealant or coating product may be sprayed to address odor or microbial concerns.
5. Filters will either be cleaned or replaced to remove odor and dirt.
