Types of Storm Damage Restoration

7/13/2021 (Permalink)

Storm damage can come in many forms, each devastating in its own way. Ice damming, frozen pipes, hail damage, wind damage, hurricane damage, flooding, and river flooding are all common effects of storm damage. SERVPRO of Edmonds professionals are here to help victims navigate storm damage restoration.

Flooding can be caused by runoff ground water, overflowing storm drains, torrential rains, hurricanes, or extreme thunderstorms. Flood water doesn't need to remain in a structure long to cause massive amounts of damage. Unfortunately, even small amounts of flood water can cause mold or mildew to begin growing in a structure.

The use of a proper flood pump is almost always necessary in situations where flood water and water restoration is needed. A reliable company such as SERVPRO of Edmonds will know exactly which type of flood pump is needed to remove any standing water. Apart from using a flood pump, industrial drying tools are also commonly needed for proper storm remediation.

Hail damage and wind damage are common forms of storm damage that professional home restoration companies are familiar with. Roof damage and roof repair may be necessary. If hail damage occurs, a professional storm restoration company can give homeowners advice on what steps to take toward storm remediation. Roof leak related issues such as roof leaking can be handled easily by the professionals at SERVPRO of Edmonds.

Ice damage can take place almost anywhere with cool winters. Frozen pipes, Ice damming, and other forms of ice damage are very common problems many people face each winter season. Ice damming is caused by buildup of ice around the edge of a roof which then can stop melting snow from draining correctly. If an ice dam has caused roof damage to your home or business, removing the ice dam and preventing future ice damming is key. Ice dam removal may require the help of professionals as well. These same professionals may be able to help with frozen pipes. Frozen pipes can lead to substantial damage to a structure.
