Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Winds, Floods, and Hail, Oh My!

6/2/2021 (Permalink)

In Gilbert and its surrounding communities, we can experience several kinds of storm damage. Specifically, damage resulting from heavy winds, floods, and hail. Consider the following notes should your home or business be affected by storm damage.

Wind Damage

The high winds of the Arizona desert often pose a severe threat to buildings’ integrity. Your roof, in particular, is highly susceptible to damage as strong winds may cause flying debris to hit or lift it. This can be exceptionally problematic to both home and business owners because roof leaks are, typically, only made apparent when the next storm hits.

Roof Leaks

As previously stated, roof leaks and roof damage can be difficult to detect. Storms can loosen the roof without creating an easily visible problem. However, the resulting damage can be extensive as even small roof leaks can produce damp, moldy conditions inside your home or business. It is critical to secure roof inspection and repair immediately after high winds. Doing so can prevent long-term interior damage. The professional technicians at SERVPRO of Gilbert, Chandler, South, Ahwatukee and South Tempe can assist home or business owners in receiving a comprehensive roof assessment and roof repair services when wind damage strikes.

Flood Damage

Heavy rains and flooding can cause water damage from many miles away. Flooding occurs when the land around your home or business cannot absorb additional water, thereby pooling the excess. Unfortunately, Arizona’s desert landscape makes the area prone to floods and flood damage. SERVPRO’s highly knowledgeable team can mitigate the effects of invading water as well as restoring the property “like it never even happened.”

Hail Damage

Hail can prove highly destructive; damaging roofs, exterior walls, and any detached buildings. In the event of a severe hail storm, it is encouraged that storm damage and restoration professionals inspect the structure for damage. Doing so ensures that any weaknesses to the exterior of the structure are identified and corrected before leading to other, more extensive, problems like water damage.

If your home or business has sustained damage after a storm, contact the professionals at SERVPRO of Gilbert, Chandler South, Ahwatukee and South Tempe for more information or services.
