Snow Melt Can Cause Flood Damage

snowy mountains Snow Melt Can Cause Flood Damage in the Lake Tahoe Region

Sometimes Mother Nature dumps heavy snow. The Lake Tahoe region hasn’t seen much snow this winter season – yet. It’s coming. When winter rears its head, you need to be ready for anything.

Torrential rains following blizzards create flooding conditions at your property which is made more problematic in freezing temperatures and 3 feet of snow. SERVPRO’s flood damage technicians are up to the challenge of this merry-go-round of precipitation.
The lower levels of your property often contain mechanical heating and cooling systems as well as water heaters and laundry facilities. Snow melt can cause flooding which endangers these expensive components and the integrity of your dwelling. If critical components of your home have been affected by water damage, a call to SERVPRO will put your appliances back online. We have professional grade pumps and wet vacuums to remove standing water. Our specialty equipment ensures that water does not re-enter your building. Saturated carpeting and flood damaged furniture can be dried in place, saving you money and time instead of buying and installing new items. We emphasize restoration over tear-out and replacement. We also supply emergency generators when electricity is not available onsite.
Once our restoration technicians finish removing water using pumps and vacuums, they add air movers and dehumidifiers to the mix to dry floor coverings and walls. As the temperature dips, heaters join the list of specialized equipment we use to restore your flood damaged property. Our project manager develops a drying plan early and revisits it as moisture levels fall. Certified technicians measure temperature, humidity, and residual water retention to keep restoration on track. Your building is our priority.

Flood damage, complicated by sleet and snow, puts your property at risk of significant and permanent damage. Choose your restoration company carefully, searching for flood damage specialists “near me” that have a solid reputation and nationwide resources.
Feel confident when you reach out to SERVPRO of Carson City / Douglas County / South Lake Tahoe / Lyon & Storey Counties for flood damage control and restoration. A call to our dispatch staff at (775) 588-2355 sends an experienced project manager to your home or business as soon as possible, ready to begin the restoration of your flooded property.
