Pylwood showing under tarps on roof during repair Storms can be extremely damaging to your home. That’s why SERVPRO of Cheviot Hills/Palms wants to help you. Call us today to restore your house!

Our homes do an amazing job of protecting us from everyday weather threats. The heat, humidity, strong wind and occasional downpours can make a big impact on our homes while we stay safe and dry inside. 

However, our homes are not invincible! Strong weather elements can cause serious damage to occur in the blink of an eye, leaving you with a destroyed home and a lot of questions. 

Getting started on the cleanup right away is important when it comes to avoiding long-term damage or issues that will only continue to worsen the longer the damage is left unaddressed. 

The Power of Wind

The wind can really pick up speed around here, especially when a storm is brewing off of the coast. Regular storms can bring wind around 30–40 miles per hour, but serious storms like coastal storms or hurricanes can easily top 100 miles per hour or more. 

These sudden bursts of wind can topple trees, overturn trampolines and even rip roofs off houses. Once your home is exposed, water damage can also set it in if it is raining. It can leak down walls or sneak in through broken windows and then you also have to deal with water damage on top of structural damage.

The Power of Water

Water damage is frustrating because it will only continue to worsen the longer you wait to address the issue. It will continue to leak and seep along any cracks or crevices in your home and can become stagnant behind your walls. 

Simple puddles or water spots can be cleaned up by yourself, but if the water gets behind your walls or under your floors, it can be virtually impossible to get at on your own. If any sort of moisture is left behind, mildew can begin to form and even mold can take hold. Over time, this can become a health hazard for your entire family.
