Can Rainfall in Jamestown Lead to Flood Damage?
Persistent Rainfall Can Cause Flood Damage in Jamestown. Contact SERVPRO for Emergency Assistance
Periods of heavy and consistent rainfall usually brought about during the stormy season can put additional pressure on your home. Damage to a roof caused by winds, for example, could lead to flooding of the upper levels of your home as torrential rain pours into the cavities. SERVPRO has a local team of qualified professionals that can help to assess, mitigate and restore your home following a flooding. We have extensive experience working with residential architecture in the area, as well as a proven track record for emergency situations such as:
- Flood damage restoration
- Water cleanup and removal
- Ceiling damage from storms
Upper-level flood damage in Jamestown can create dangers in your home. Not only is there a risk of slipping on wet floors, the ceilings themselves may become compromised by excessive waterlogging. For technicians, one possible fix is to drain the ceiling cavities by removing surface layers of the building assembly. These layers can usually be reinstalled relatively cheaply using new materials; however, drying the cavity before applying new materials is essential to avoiding long-term water damage issues. Attic spaces, in particular, can be tough to reach due to restricted access limiting standard equipment such as pumps or extraction units. SERVPRO can often deploy portable extractors in these circumstances to maintain an efficient drying procedure.
- Portable extraction units have an in-built storage tank that can hold over thirty gallons of water.
- Wand fittings are used in combination with these extractors to allow access to smaller areas of a loft.
- Portable extractors use the same components as truck-mounted extractors, which include vacuums, heating elements, and the ability to disperse antimicrobial chemicals.
