SERVPRO Prepares for Many Types of Flood Damage

Flooding is an occurrence that many around Monroe have contended with in their home's lifetime, and some in lower-lying areas remain susceptible to this when severe storm systems pass through. Understanding how flooding can occur in your home makes you better prepared to react quickly when these conditions arise to get experienced restoration professionals like our SERVPRO team there to help.

Roof Damage Flooding

Flood damage to Monroe homes can often occur through roof vulnerabilities. Not only does this cause attic flooding, which can be a challenge to restore on its own with the needed roof repairs and confined space to dry, but migration of moisture can also impact the main living areas.

Flash Flooding and Rising Exterior Water

Water entering the home from the ground level outside is a situation many properties have witnessed over the past years. Flash floods are violent and aggressive, overwhelming areas of your home before counteractive measures can be taken. In these situations, extraction must be the first consideration to prevent more of the house from becoming damaged.

Structural Damage from the Outside

External impacts, such as trees falling in your yard and onto the structure, can be an opening for water penetration. Responding professionals will need to cut up the tree and remove it, patch the building, and begin work on cleaning up the flood damage inside.
