Summer Storms Can Bring Flood Damage To Your Amherst Home
Summer Storms Can Bring Flood Damage
Summer brings warm weather, vacations, and outdoor barbeques, but it also brings seasonal storms with it that can cause intense flood damage to your home. Lightning, thunder, whipping winds, and heavy rain are all a product of these severe storms and each one can have a significant impact on your residence. When lightning strikes a tree outside your house and causes it to plunge through part of your roof, the situation can seem like something out of a nightmare. Water from the rains come gushing into your guest bedroom, and before you know it, the room is flooded, and your furniture is soaked. It is imperative to reach out to professionals as soon as you can.
In order for a contractor to fix the new hole in your roof, the flood damage in your Amherst home must be dealt first. The contractor cannot work with sopping wet patches of material. The sooner you get a professional restoration company into your home, the better, as they can remove the flooded water and dry out the space.
When SERVPRO arrives at your house, the first thing we can do after our investigation is put a tarp over the hole of your roof so no further moisture can get inside while we work. Afterward, our technicians can clean up any floating, and potentially dangerous, debris from the tree that fell into your home. Once we are dealing with just the flooded water, SERVPRO can then bring in advanced trade technology so that we may remove it.
Our techs use devices like wet/dry vacuums and portable pumps to remove the flooded water from your guest room. To assist in removing water from the soaked carpet and drapes, we can use an extractor to remove the moisture. An extractor has a heating element that further helps to dry fabric materials as it pulls the water away from them. Additionally, SERVPRO can use tools like ventilation box fans and air movers to dry out your floor and the area of your roof that had been damaged by the rain. The very last thing that we can do for you is to put you in contact with a contractor that we recommend so they can fix the hole in your roof.
When an accident befalls your home, never hesitate to call for help. Get in touch with SERVPRO of Hampshire County by dialing (413) 324-1300. Our experts always make it a priority to arrive at your home as swiftly as we possibly can.
