Spring is the season for volatile weather, SERVPRO is prepared to help with effective property restoration
Spring is notorious for producing a broad range of extreme weather, including major snowstorms, severe thunderstorms, flooding, big temperature changes and high winds. Temperatures can swing back and forth between balmy and frigid. Sunny days may be followed by a week of stormy weather. That temperature contrast fuels a strong jet stream, and in turn, highly variable weather conditions.
Spring is the time of year when many things change—including the weather. Spring storms can be unpredictable, we can't stop spring showers, but our Manhattan property restoration team is ready to provide cleanup and repairs to your home or business should it suffer from Spring thunderstorms, severe winds, flooding or other property damage disasters. There are a variety of potential property damages that you may experience. These include:
- Roof or structural damage to your walls from a fallen tree or high winds
- Broken windows from hailstorms or objects thrown by heavy wind
- Lightning strikes, which could lead to a fire
- Water damage caused by loose or damaged shingles, clogged gutters, or leaking roofs
- Flooding in your basement or home
- Animal infestations caused by critters looking for shelter during the storm
Our professionals first assess the severity of the situation and determine the full extent of the storm, flooding, or additional water damage. Restoring your home or business quickly, takes specialized equipment and highly skilled IICRC professionals. Our team closely inspects the flooded or other water damaged areas; measuring the moisture content, humidity, and temperature to assess the full extent of the damage. It is important to note that storm property damage emergencies are rarely mild enough to not require some form of intervention and work by our experienced technicians.
Some conditions that could encourage a prompt call to our SERVPRO team are:
Standing Water – Pooling water in a damaged area can be destructive to many of the materials. Wood and sheetrock exposed to standing water can quickly absorb this water and allow for a much more rapid deterioration of the construction element.
Migrating Water – You might not always know how widespread water loss effects can be, but if water has moved beyond the surface of materials, you need the sophisticated tools of our team to identify moisture pockets and dampness beyond what the eye can see.
Hidden Damages – In the same way that water can migrate throughout your apartment, damages can exist and persist out of sight without discovery tools and positive pressure drying systems getting used.
When water damage occurs in your home or business, knowing what to do will save precious time and ultimately minimize losses to your property and building contents. Strom damage can result in many serious problems, such as rotted sheetrock and weakened support beams, so it needs to be dealt with quickly and efficiently – before water damage compromises the structural integrity of the building and causes mold issues.
