What are the types of storm damage that could happen to my home?
There are three types of possible storm damages in the Sacramento area: flood damage, wind damage, and fire damage. If a storm does hit your home or business, SERVPRO of East Sacramento / West Arden Arcade offers a few tips to help you in your situation.
If your property - home or business - is near a low-lying area or near a body of water, it is at a risk for flood water damage. Heavy rains like the storm in late-October and flooding may cause water damage. Another cause of flooding is if the land surrounding your home or business cannot redirect water. The moment you have water damage or see your property flooding, call SERVPRO of East Sacramento / West Arden Arcade to begin the drying process and mitigation.
Although it is rare in Sacramento, strong winds can lift the roof shingles. This results in sections of the roof cracking or the entire roof being damaged. Make sure to enlist in a roofing company to inspect your roof for damage and a restoration company to check your roof for signs of moisture or leaks.
Fire season happens during the summer months. The fierce winds can pick up and spread fire through residential areas causing structure fires or smoke damage. Once the evacuation ban has been lifted, SERVPRO of East Sacramento / West Arden Arcade can be at your property to inspect and assess the fire and smoke damages.
