What to Avoid When a Temperature Drop in Superior Causes Flood Damage on Your Property
Ice Damming Can Allow Flooding in Your Superior Home
With winter weather beginning to settle into the Superior area, homeowners should be mindful of the situations that could impact their property in devastating ways. While there is a persistent possibility of freezing to plumbing that could prove disastrous, failure to maintain your roof through the winter season could have equally damaging results. Ice damming is a common situation for metal and shingled roofs, and this situation traps water on your roof until the weight can force a path through this defense into the attic space of your house.
Once your home has a vulnerable point for water penetration, situations that exasperate this penetration point can allow flooding to occur within your Superior residence. Many homeowners are not aware that their roof has become damaged until they see the effects of flooding within their house, and at this point, you need professional assistance that can show up quickly to help you overcome these damages.
Our SERVPRO technicians can arrive quickly to help you assess the full scope of the damage and to protect the elements of your home that can still get salvaged from the water penetration that threatens them. This process begins with the emergency board up services for your attic space to prevent further water penetration into the property. Once this step has gotten completed, we can shift our focus to water extraction and drying approaches.
Fast extraction is critical to preserving as much of the structural elements of your home as possible. Our truck-mounted pumps within our SERVPRO Green Fleet can pull water from your home at a force of 300 psi. This equipment can quickly remove the excess water and allow our technicians to begin drying out the affected areas completely to assess what construction materials can get salvaged.
Flood recovery is challenging for homeowners to contend with on their own, as many of the drying and extraction efforts prove inadequate and allow for secondary effects like mold growth to occur. Trust in the fast response of our SERVPRO of The Twin Ports professionals to help you get your home back to original condition fast. Give us a call today at (218) 727-2575.
