Storm Damage Why Monsoon Storms Can Damage Your Home Water and Windstorms Can Damage Structures

Trust the Experience of SERVPRO® to Restore Storm Damage

Your Rio Rancho home might be one of the last places that you might expect to flood, given that the average rainfall every year is far below the averages for other places around the country. As monsoon season quickly approaches houses in the area get wind damaged and flooded year after year from storm damages that allow heavy rainfall to access a home quickly. The more severe the weather event, the more significant the water damage that results in the affected area of your home.

Preventative steps can be taken to reduce the risk of these occurrences, such as trimming back trees and cutting off dead limbs, but you cannot avoid the possibility entirely. Your best solution when unfortunate circumstances like these occur to your property is to know whom to call to help you restore the damage and get the water extracted quickly to prevent further lasting damage to the structure of your residence.

Our experienced SERVPRO® team has seen many storm damage incidents throughout the area and have a simple formula for restoring your home. Our first step is to remove the possibility of more damage occurring by boarding up the hole in your home or tarping over punctured portions of your roof. The process prevents additional water from being able to enter your home allowing the restoration process to continue to deal with the internal issues. Repairs to the damaged portions of your roof, siding or windows can be dealt with when the severe weather subsides, and the restoration process gets completed.

Extraction of the water is paramount to preventing further structural damages, and based on the location of the affected area, our SERVPRO® team utilizes either portable pumps or truck-mounted pumps to address this primary concern. Drying efforts typically get achieved with the use of air movers. Infrared scanning is another part of our assessment, to make sure that further water damages are not persisting out of sight.

Having a company that can coordinate the whole process from start to finish to make your life easier and gets you back in your home or business faster. “Like it never even happened.”®
