How Snow Damaged Roofs Cause Flooding in Burley
Heavy Snowfall Can Allow Flooding Through Burley Roofs
During the winter months, Burley residents prepare for significant snowfall every year. While many of the homes and properties can manage these weather systems throughout one season to the next, aging roofs can begin to show wear and tear from supporting the massive weight of several inches of snowfall on a regular basis. The trouble is that many homeowners do not know about vulnerabilities in their roof until it collapses or fails in some way, allowing flooding to occur through the attic space and into the floors below.
Once your roof has allowed flood damage to occur to your Burley home, you want to react quickly to get the right personnel there to help. Our SERVPRO professionals are available any time of the day to help customers through traumatic situations like this with effective mitigation strategies and emergency board up services that can help to prevent further water penetration into the home until it can get appropriately and sufficiently reconstructed.
As is the case with any flooding situation, extraction has to take priority along with other mitigation strategies our team utilizes. We can arrive with our Green Fleet, which features a sizable truck-mounted pump capable of extracting water from affected areas at a rate of 300 psi. Once extraction wands have taken care of the rest, our SERVPRO team can focus on drying efforts to protect damaged elements of the home from structural failure and collapse.
Meanwhile, other technicians that have arrived with our rapid response team catalog damage to items and contents throughout your home, tagging them for removal off-site. We can carefully remove these belongings from the property and store them in a nearby facility of ours for focused cleaning, drying, disinfection, and deodorizing efforts. Once restoration completes within the home, we can return these items to their original places.
While snowfall occurs every year, knowing the stability of your roof and its ability to weather the weight can be critical to preventing flooding. Give our SERVPRO of Wood River Valley rapid response team a call at the first sign of flood damage at (208) 788-0183.
