The Risks Associated With Storm Damage | SERVPRO of Fayetteville

2/20/2024 (Permalink)

Tree house damage Has your home been hit with major storm damage? Call SERVPRO of Fayetteville now. We are here for the rescue!

Suffering home damage during a strong storm can be frustrating, scary and even dangerous while the damage is occurring. One minute you are hunkering down safely and the next you are bracing yourself for a fallen tree or a straight line wind that has whipped through your now-broken windows. 

While we can’t always prevent storm damage from happening, it is important to respond quickly after the fact. The longer you wait to address damage, the worse it can get and can even lead to further structural concerns throughout your home. 

The Impact of Wind 

The wind can really pick up in our area and can range anywhere from a soft breeze to a dangerous straight line wind that clocks up to 100 miles per hour or more. Sudden bursts of strong wind can level buildings and cause significant damage in just a few seconds. 

Even moderate wind speeds can pick up yard debris or some of your forgotten possessions in your yard and turn them into projectiles. Patio furniture, trampolines and even cars can be overturned and tossed into the side of your home. 

Once the wind damage has occurred, it is possible for water damage to occur as well! If the rain is still falling and your home is exposed to the elements, things can go downhill pretty quickly for you.

The Impact of Water

Rain can be really troublesome for homes, especially if you have already suffered structural damage. It can leak through your home via gaps and cracks and seep behind walls and under floors. Over time, this lingering moisture can even lead to stubborn mold infestations. 

If your home has suffered some sort of impact damage and the rain begins to soak your possessions, you could find yourself dealing with widespread water issues all over your home. The water can soak carpets, seep into upholstery and ruin important documents.
