Winter Weather Brings Destruction for Your Home

11/16/2021 (Permalink)

Winter is Here! By providing maintenance on your home, you will ensure it's ready for the winter.

It doesn’t matter if you are a winter holiday fan because here we go as we approach another winter season. Did you know that the winter season can bring extensive destruction to your home if you are not careful? Jack Frost can’t stand a chance when you have your friendly SERVPRO professionals here to help.

Wind + Frozen Branches = Massive Headaches

Everyone will admit that they enjoy a pleasant stroll through the park during the first snow of the season. The die-hard winter lovers will realize that they enjoy seeing ice-covered trees because it’s peaceful. What isn’t friendly is the possibility that when the wind picks up, it could break the branch off the tree and land on your home. If a bigger branch falls onto your home and causes damage that needs reconstruction services, yes, you got it. SERVPRO can help rebuild anything that mother nature breaks. 

Frosty is Melting + Crack in Foundation = Flooded Basement 

The kiddos might wish for more snow so they can enjoy another snow day. The dogs might be excited to shove their face right into the snow. Parents are stressed because of the slushy mess that the kids and/or dogs are tracking in. Slush is the least of your worries because that ice and that snow might be creating tiny cracks in the foundation of your home. This is a problem because when the snow melts, there is a chance that water will seep through the cracks causing water damage. When you have moisture soaking onto your carpet or wall mixed with the warm temperatures inside the home might create perfect scenarios for mold to thrive in. 

These are two examples of ways that winter weather can create more significant problems for your home. Staying on top of the maintenance of your home will ensure that a bigger disaster isn’t waiting to make an appearance.
