GTA Property Services Group Inc. (www.GTAPropertyServicesGroup.com), the leading cleaning company in Vaughan specializing in water damage restoration and cleanup, is weighing in on the nature of the multiple water damage claims it responded to on the coldest day of the New Year.
On Tuesday, January 13, Toronto and the GTA experienced the coldest day of 2015 so far, with the wind chill dropping the temperatures to a frigid –30 degrees. On this day, GTA Property Services Group Inc. had to respond to multiple calls for service.

“Our emergency crew was all over the GTA responding to calls about water damage,” says Chad Vanvari, owner of GTA Property Services Group Inc. “Many of the claims we responded to were a result of frozen or burst pipelines that cracked because of the extreme cold weather.”
Mr. Vanvari explains that the team was called to several locations, including a large condo building, a commercial building in downtown Toronto, an elevator pit flooding, and one of the more difficult calls to deal with, a large, three-bedroom home in Pickering that had damage in every room.
“Responding in an efficient time frame is key,” he adds. “Upon arriving on-site, the team proceeded with water extraction before tearing out all the affected building material. The situation was then quickly assessed by the team, who came up with solutions to get the situation back under control so the affected families and businesses could go back to functioning normally again.”
Mr. Vanvari observes that extreme cold weather presents many hazardous side effects that home and building owners should be aware of. That’s why it is important to be connected to a company like GTA Property Services Group Inc. in order to be prepared when an emergency does present itself.
“You just never know what can happen,” Mr. Vanvari concludes. “Meteorologists do their best to predict the weather, but when something unpredictable happens, it’s always best to be prepared.”
