Storm Damage Can Expose Your Montgomery Home To Flooding
Storm Damage Can Expose Your Property To Flooding
While you might not always think about the severe weather that could impact your Montgomery home, the threat of harsh storms complete with gale force winds are never out of the question. When you consider the severe weather that so many coastal states endured throughout the latest hurricane season, even this area found itself hit with storms that vastly exceeded what would normally get expected through the warmer seasons.
Perhaps one of the most damaging effects that these more significant storms carried with them were the intense winds. These gusts could make short work of weakened limbs and uproot entire trees as it pushed through the area over an extended period. Homes became exposed, holes in the roofs and gashes through the siding were just some of the damages that could get seen in the wake of these substantial storm systems. For many Montgomery homeowners, the system brought flood damages along with them after the storm opened the outer barrier to the elements.
With a hole in the roof of your home or with damage to the siding on any part of your home, the interior now becomes exposed to the elements and high volume of rainwater typical of these gigantic storm systems. This damage allows water to pour into your home through these openings unabated, and flooding can result very quickly in the nearby areas of your home. Fortunately, our SERVPRO team can work quickly to help you thwart some of this potential flood damage to your home.
It begins when our technicians arrive on the scene. We prioritize sealing up the holes and exposed areas of your house with tarps and boards. The water left in the area gets pulled out by pumps and wet-vacs fitted with extraction wands. The moisture and dampness that remains can get resolved using several different types of equipment, though air movers and dehumidification equipment is at the heart of the process.
Resolving flood damage to your home is a job for professional restoration providers like our team at SERVPRO of Montgomery South. We can work quickly to ensure that the damage does not get worse. We can be reached 24/7 by calling (334) 284-1612.
