Harsh winters can take their toll on the structural integrity of homes and businesses. Most often, home and business owners do not even realize the full extent of damage that their home suffered throughout the hardest of winter months until the temperatures return to favorable conditions and snowfall gets replaced with steadier rains. Even worse, the unfortunate way that most people learn about these vulnerable water penetration points in their roof or siding is when water can pour into their houses unabated. Unfortunately, by the time that you begin to recognize that something is amiss, flood waters have damaged your property. With the far reaches of water damage, this is not something that even a skilled homeowner can adequately handle on their own. There are risks associated with failing to remove all the moisture and dampness common to flood damages, and the only way to ensure you do is to hire professional restorers.

Our SERVPRO professionals can respond quickly to your call and work to start removing the present water in your home right away. From portable pumps and wet-vacs with extraction wands to gigantic pumps from our fleet, we have multiple options when it comes to removing the water quickly. While extraction is a critical component of this restoration process, drying efforts hold an equally valuable place in the procedure.

When it comes to ensuring that the affected areas of your home get thoroughly dried, several pieces of equipment often get used. This process is so essential because lingering moisture and dampness are natural breeding grounds for mold and microbial growth. Through devices like our SERVPRO

injectory system, cavities and hard to reach areas get the air they need to dry entirely.

As challenging as flooding in your home might be, especially when it comes from the attic space, there is nothing that SERVPRO water restoration professionals cannot help you to overcome. We can respond quickly with the tools and personnel to get the job done right.
