Water Intrusions Via Storm Water Can Cause Massive Damage--Reach Out to SERVPRO for Cleanup and Restoration

While West Monroe homeowners do not have to worry about heavy snow weighing down and damaging the roofs of their houses, unfortunately, this does not offer much relief regarding the damage that this structural component of your house gets asked to endure. With massive storm systems passing through the area on a fairly regular basis, your roof takes a very literal beating every time. While these elements are built to last for decades, this does not always mean that they can. 

While no one wants to have to endure the cost or the potential headache of residential contractors competing for roofing repair estimates, this annoyance is not the least of your worries. A compromised roof has a difficult time keeping the elements on the outside of your West Monroe residence, which in turn can result in flood damages to the upper level of your house. Since you likely are not regularly inspecting your roof for vulnerable points, you might not even be aware of a flooding concern until its presence begins to show on the ceilings and walls of the spaces below the attic. 

This discovery should encourage you to reach out to our experienced SERVPRO professionals right away. Our dedicated team can get to work quickly to assess the total reach of the storm damage from the source to where you have noticed its presence in other areas of your home. Sealing up the penetration points on the interior side of the roof can prevent further damage while the restoration process gets underway. 

Our team of technicians can get to work on extraction after the immediate threat of further damage has gotten removed. This process involves often involves portable pumps and wet vacs. Drying mats and our injectidry system allow the spaces in the walls and beneath the attic's flooring to get thoroughly dried. The exposed areas get reached with air movers and dehumidification equipment. 

Working quickly when your home suffers flood damage can help prevent damage to your home's contents and its structural components, making them unsalvageable. You can trust in the experience and dedication of our SERVPRO of Monroe / West Monroe team of restoration specialists to help you overcome this threat and restore the effects this flood has had on your home. Give us a call anytime you need us at (318) 345-5121.
