Restoring Your Damaged Home
When assessing how best to address storm damage, it is absolutely crucial that you first consult with a licensed water restoration contractor at SERVPRO of Laguna Hils/Laguna Niguel. Going into the repair process equipped with an objective and professional perspective is the only way that you can ensure a successful and safe home restoration. Whether your property endured flooding, hurricane damage, wind damage, storm damage, or ice damage, for your safety, it’s best to evacuate the premises until the storm remediation process is completed. Your damaged home may contain dangers like ground water in the basement or you may have hazards like roof leaks or flood water. Whatever the case, you’ll want an expert to evaluate the premises before stepping foot in your damaged home.
Seasonal storms are often accompanied by river flooding, so qualified storm restoration and water restoration services take into account any flooding that may have affected your property.
Storm remediation often entails the removal of gallons upon gallons of flood water, an arduous process which requires a flood pump. In cases of hurricane damage and storm damage, ground water often comes to the surface and can enter the home, at which point it can only be removed by a flood pump. Water restoration crews always carry flood pumps as part of their toolset since they are the first people to call when you find flood water in the home.
Depending on your region and the time of year you may also need a roof repair or have ice damage, hail damage, have frozen pipes and or have ice dams.
Ice Dams & Frozen Pipes
One type of ice damage that requires immediate storm restoration is ice damming. If you see an ice dam on your roof it’s imperative that you act quickly to reduce the amount of roof repair your home will need. After a heavy snowfall and several days of freezing temperatures ice dams are likely to form on your roof and damage it. This roof damage can quickly result in roof leaks making it critical that you have someone perform roof repair immediately to mitigate the storm damage. Ice damming can quickly lead to other issues such as flooding if not taken care of with proper storm restoration.
Wind damage, ice damage and hail damage can all cause roof leaks. However, ice damming can be the most harmful to your roof and should be immediately removed by a professional storm remediation service. A roof leak or any roof damage can quickly lead to just as much moisture damage as river flooding or ground water in no time. If you have any roof damage, arranging for prompt roof repair along with a complete home restoration is a must.
Preparing for Storms
As long as people continue to live in areas where storms are common, properties will still be prone to hurricane damage, wind damage, and river flooding.
In the winter months, hail damage, ice damming and frozen pipes are to be expected. While there’s not a lot that can be done about the weather besides moving somewhere else, discovering professional home restoration and storm remediation resources within your community can help protect you against roof damage, ground water flooding and frozen pipes.
Storm remediation is too great a task to do it alone, so it’s important to get the help of water restoration and storm restoration professionals in your area, SERVPRO of Laguna Hills/Laguna Niguel can take care of any wind damage, hurricane damage or hail damage you have had or may have this year. And remember, safety always comes first, so make sure to have your home professionally assessed before setting foot on the property.
