Plainville Homeowners Know to Call SERVPRO when Storms Affect Their Properties

Badly Weathered Roof Shingles Can Cause Flooding Problems in Plainville Properties--SERVPRO Can Dry Out Your Home

Isolated Flood Damage in Your Plainville Home Can Happen after Hail Storms

In the summertime, why worry about the winter? It is wise to be prepared. Hail storms hurtling ice at your home in Plainville can leave vehicles, lawn furniture, and other outside structures dented, showing the power of hail and your roof can also suffer. If a damaged roof only looks unharmed because you do not see any visibly loosened shingles, rain from the next storm can drench your home through an opening in the roof.

Helping homeowners cope with various disasters, including mitigation of flood damage in Plainville, SERVPRO knows how to help when rainwater coming in through the roof causes serious problems. Hail hits more than your roof and the items around your lawn and driveway, however.

Hail can also dent gutters and cause them to drain incorrectly. Once damaged like this, rainwater can splash up against our home's exterior and leak into the wall's interior. Moisture barriers in exterior walls can make it more difficult for trapped water to evaporate during the drying part of the mitigation process. Hail can damage the sides of your home, also letting water into these enclosed spaces.

SERVPRO uses standardized methods designed to get these areas dry, just like the rest of your home. Where we can drill small openings for our Injectidry's tubing so we can force warm, dry air into interior walls, we need to dismantle and separate a wet exterior wall's components. Some of the components found inside exterior walls may be salvaged like insulation, while we need to throw others away and replace them. Many forms of insulation that become wet no longer can protect your home like they did when first installed. Closed-cell insulation is the only one that does not suffer from the presence of water. Saving other kinds of insulation in nearby areas can happen as long as we get the wall dried out quickly before moisture invades that area. There is always the threat of mold development.

We have everything we need to mitigate damage, including equipment to both air-dry your property and to wipe things clean wherever needed. Carpeting and tile, as well as wood floors that got soaked fare better with overhead sources of flood damage than those that sustain flooding coming underneath your doorway. We give floors the attention needed to keep existing damage from becoming permanent. Our advanced mat drying system for hardwoods can save many a floor for our customer, and money and inconvenience, also.

SERVPRO of Bristol can help homeowners by mitigating all forms of flood damage, including that caused by storms, hail, and other forces of nature. Contact us by calling (860) 582-3330, which is our 24-hour service line. We are always here to mitigate the damage affecting homes in Pequabuck, Bakersville, and New Hartford.
