A Fallen Tree Can Cause Trouble For Your Home
How Fallen Trees Can Mean Flood Damage In South Lake Tahoe
Severe weather systems can affect South Lake Tahoe homes and businesses through every season of the year. From torrential rainfall and flooding scenarios that occur during the spring and summer months to the heavy snowfall expected every fall and winter, homeowners must always have a contingency plan in place to protect their property from standing water threats that a compromised exterior to their home can allow. Every season also presents its own unique risks for fallen trees and breaking limbs, and these can lead to disastrous circumstances for properties they affect.
Trees that fall or lose limbs can puncture roofs and tear off siding, leading to flood damage in South Lake Tahoe residences. With the severity of these situations as they occur, flooding can often start immediately without giving homeowners any legitimate warning. At the first sign of problems like this, property owners should reach out to our SERVPRO rapid response team. We have a full-service approach to these emergencies, working to address structural concerns, tree removal, and the harsh effects of flooding within the property as well.
While our team can quickly provide temporary construction solutions like board up and tarping for structural compromise allowing water penetration, another hurdle present at the emergency is the tree that caused the damage. Our technicians and team members can work quickly to remove this threat against your property and work to remove it entirely from the premises when more favorable weather conditions exist.
Addressing the flood effects in your home must begin at the point of penetration, utilizing drying efforts in areas like the attic and upper floors of the property. Where water has been collected, our SERVPRO team can utilize portable extraction equipment like wet-vacs with extraction wands and submersible pumps. We can run these tools on our generators if the tree damage also severed consistent power to the property.
There are many hazards present when fallen trees allow for flooding in a home. Let our SERVPRO of Carson City / Douglas County / South Lake Tahoe professionals help you through every phase of recovery with our experience and advanced equipment. Give us a call whenever disaster strikes at (775) 588-2355.
