Heavy Snowfall Can Cause Flood Damage to Your Westhampton Home
SERVPRO Offers IICRC-Certified Restoration Services 24/7
Many envision a flood in Westhampton as one that overtakes neighborhoods slowly in the Spring. However, substantial snowfall can also cause flooding in your home when weak spots in your roof give way and collapse. One of the first services we perform when we arrive is placing a tarp over the affected area of your home to prevent any additional damage.
A Westhampton home can suffer flood damage from snow crashing through the roof. Such snow can affect every level of the home, from top to bottom. The situation can become worse when a homeowner does not realize a problem with the roof happened and only becomes aware of the problem when water becomes visible in the living areas of the home.
Water slowly seeps down from melting snow, allowing many materials to absorb substantial mounts. A great deal of damage happens in the attic, of course, but living areas also need professional mitigation. Your personal belongings can also end up severely affected and require specialized care. Restoration typically costs much less than replacing items, and at SERVPRO, we prefer to always take the most cost-effective options available to us.
Although this kind of flood does not impose debris and sediment on a house as a typical flood does, we still must treat your home for contamination. Even the best-kept homes can harbor vermin, including rodents and birds, many of which carry disease. Pathogens carried by these animals, previously undetected mold, and other unhealthy substances can cause health effects. Our pumps remove not only the water but a substantial amount of the contaminants, also.
Drying a home includes removing saturated carpeting, sections of walls and ceilings, airing out other enclosed areas, including closets and cabinets, and installing dry materials. We save our customers expensive replacement costs by cleaning personal belongings, furniture, and household items. Flooding in your home can cause extensive problems, but at SERVPRO, we train our technicians according to IICRC standards. Because they understand the latest in restoration technology, we can provide you with the most appropriate services for your unique situation.
