The Risk of Compounding Home Damage After a Storm | SERVPRO of Patchogue

2/20/2024 (Permalink)

Roof Repair Restoration on Home We are no stranger to helping recover homes from storm damage. Call SERVPRO of Patchogue today for quick assistance!

Our homes protect us every day from weather threats whether we know it or not. The heat, humidity, bitter wind and strong storms can impact our walls and roofs while we stay safely tucked away inside. 

However, our homes are not invincible and can suffer the weight of constant threats and impacts. Damage can occur in an instant and leave your home vulnerable to the elements. 

Quick action is necessary to not only fix the damage, but to also prevent further damage from occurring to your home. SERVPRO of Patchogue is here to offer fast restoration service after a storm! 

The Dangers of Wind 

We all know how strong the wind can be whipping off of the bay, and it can really pick up speed depending on the current threat. Regular thunderstorms can bring moderately high winds, but coastal storms and hurricanes can easily bring wind that tops 100 miles per hour or more. These sudden bursts of wind can cause all kinds of damage in seconds. 

When the wind picks up, debris can easily be thrown about your yard and thrown against your home. Impact damage from a broken tree limb or even something huge like a flying trampoline can cause severe damage to your roof or siding, but it can also lead to water damage over time. 

Broken windows or parts of your home that have been exposed to the elements for any period of time can become soaked if the rain starts to fall. Not only do you have structural damage, you now have water damage, too.

The Danger of Water

Water can be just as frustrating. Strong summer storms can bring heavy rain, hurricanes can push the bay up onto our properties and heavy snowstorms can cause issues when the snow starts to melt in the springtime. Each instance comes with its own risk, but water can easily infiltrate your homes. Even just the tiniest gap or crack along your roofline or foundation can become problematic for you. 

If the water isn’t cleaned up quickly, it can easily seep and leak behind your walls and under your floors, becoming virtually impossible to dry up without professional help. If any sort of moisture is lingering behind your walls, mildew and mold can become a problem. Over time, a mold infestation can break down your structural beams and can even become a health hazard for your family.

What We Can Do to Help 

We know that time is of the essence when it comes to home emergencies, which is why we jump right into action the second you call us. The longer damage sits, the worse it can become and higher the risk of compounding damages. 

We will simultaneously work on securing your home from further damage, address structural issues, water problems and even mold infestations all at once. Our goal is to return your home to its pre-storm damage state as quickly as possible.

Storm damage can be severe. Contact SERVPRO of Patchogue for immediate restoration assistance.
