Winter Roof Damage Can Cause Flooding
Through the expected harsh winter, the roof on your Fairfield County home gets asked to withstand a great deal of strain and weight. Even reinforced or newer roofing materials can weaken and slouch under a heavy snowfall, leading to vulnerable points throughout this defense on top of your house. While you cannot control the effects of the weather on the roof of your home, you can work to ensure that it is fully functional and ready for further severe weather systems in the future through annual inspections.
The trouble with regular inspections into the quality of your roof is that many homeowners do not think to have these done before flooding in Fairfield County has occurred and required professional water cleanup for their house. Once a roof gets damaged to the point of allowing water and moisture to pass through, your attic space becomes the first to experience water flow or microbial growth. Our SERVPRO professionals can help.
At the first signs of flood damage on the lower levels of your home beneath the attic space, you should notify our rapid response team. We can arrive quickly to help mitigate the situation as much as possible through emergency board-up services to prevent further water penetration and the removal of contents in your home at risk of exposure and damage from the invading water.
Our emergency response team can also employ our equipment like truck-mounted pumps from our SERVPRO Green Fleet and wet-vacs with extraction wands for pulling up the excess water throughout the affected areas of your house. This removal can help our technicians to adequately inspect the property for a full assessment of sustained damage and the required steps to restore it.
When flooding begins in your home, you do not have a moment to lose. Water damage can spread quickly and begin to affect exposed materials immediately. Give our SERVPRO of Fairfield County team a call at (740) 756-7003 to help you overcome the immediate effects and work efficiently to restore damaged elements of the property.
