Storm Damage Storm Damage Can Allow Flooding In Your Maynard Residence Call SERVPRO to Rescue Your Maynard Home after Flooding

Maynard Homeowners Call SERVPRO for Water Extraction and Drying after Stormy Incidents

Severe weather is no stranger to the state of Massachusetts, let alone to the residents of Maynard. From the heavy snowfall throughout the winter months to the torrential rainfall expected through the spring and summer months, homes take a beating all year round from these steady elements. Even with the reinforcement of roofs and exterior materials like siding, homes still fall victim to the severe weather and allow substantial volumes of runoff or floodwaters to enter their home.

While these unfortunate circumstances might come unexpectedly, knowing what to do when they happen can help to limit the flood damages that your Maynard home experiences. One of the first things that you should do is to know whom to call in the event of an emergency like this, and that is a professional restoration company like SERVPRO.

Floodwaters entering your home can quickly saturate the materials used in the construction of your house. If the water damage originates from the attic area, materials like insulation and ceiling framework can get too heavy to remain supported and collapse into the lower levels of your home. One of the SERVPRO goals is to make every job as safe as possible, which begins with assessing these risks along with the full scope of the damage that your home faces.

Another consideration is the removal and replacement of the materials too irreparably damaged for restoration to be practical or even possible. This assessment is one that takes a trained eye and experience to make, which can eliminate unessential costs and help to make the restoration process go more quickly. The final call for tossing non-salvageable materials, especially possessions and furnishings, is controlled by the homeowner and the insurance adjuster.  We can advise which areas of your home can get restored with drying efforts and cleanup and which require removal and replacement.

While there are no ways that you can prepare yourself for the potential flooding that can come from storm damages on the exterior of your house, there are ways that you can prepare for what you would do if such an occurrence happens. You should give our experienced SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord restoration team a call immediately at (978) 486-9868.
