When Storms Come, SERVPRO Can Fix the Damage

Many homeowners expect only the worst storms to do damage to their home, but even short storms can cause damage to a home when trees are victims of disease. Many diseases can create weak trees with dead limbs, and some diseases can affect the roots of the tree instead. A tree that looks healthy may not be healthy in reality, and it can actually be a huge danger to your home or garage without you knowing until it is too late. If your home, garage, or any other buildings have been damaged by tree limbs or trunks, it is good to know that we have the skills and equipment to make it "Like it never even happened."

Rain is not Always Needed for Storm-Like Conditions to Exist, Nor for Damage to Happen.

Dust storms can create conditions ripe for storm damage to happen. Shingles and siding can come off, ripped away by high winds and debris that is carried by the wind. If sand is carried by winds, this can corrode and pit paint and other surfaces of your home's exterior. With trees, rain often erodes soil away from roots, making it easier for entire trees to topple onto houses and garages. Rain is not always needed for this to happen, however, if erosion has already happened.

When damage happens during a storm, or when storm-like conditions happen, repairs should be started and completed as soon as possible. This can substantially reduce the risks posed by the elements to the interior of your home. Repairs will also keep insects and other pests from further deteriorating your home. Termites and other pests, some of which may have been the reason behind diseased trees on your property, won't be able to infiltrate your home's exterior if repairs are made, and completed, in a timely manner.
