Dead Trees Can Cause Flood Damages To Your Anoka Residence

Dead Trees Can Cause Flood Damage

Your Anoka home might not always see the worst weather imaginable year round, but it does see its fair share of severe storms that pass through. While your home might get constructed to withstand some of the harsh winds and heavy rainfall that come along with strong storm systems rolling through the region, it was never built to withstand the weight and force of falling limbs from trees (not to mention the entire tree itself).

The trouble with circumstances and weather systems that can knock down trees, beyond the obvious structural damage it can cause, is the possibility of flood damage to your Anoka residence. With wide gashes and punctured holes in the roof of your house, or through the siding on its exterior, you now have clear pathways for heavy rainfall to pour into your house rather than get diverted from it as it usually would. All of these circumstances can happen simultaneously, offering you little time to think about what to do next, so it is a good thing to know whom you can trust in a situation like this to help you restore the damage and prevent it from getting worse.

Our SERVPRO professionals have gotten specially trained in flood damage restoration. From the moment that our team arrives at your home, we prioritize sealing up the holes and punctures that permitted water to pour into your house. While these areas need repair, it initially prevents further structural damage to seal these points off with tarps and boards to keep new water out of the affected areas of your home.

Circumstances like this often leave your attic taking the brunt of the flood damage, and depending on the time before professional restoration could begin, might have spread to adjoining areas of your home through the floors. Extraction is a priority in these circumstances, as the pooled water otherwise finds a path to keep moving through your home, and widespread damage can prove costly and difficult to restore. Thoroughly drying the area with drying mats and air movers can prevent the water from affecting areas like your ceilings below the attic.

You might not have anticipated the damage that a single tree can do to your home, but fortunately, you have SERVPRO of Coon Rapids / Central Anoka County to help you through the restoration process. You can reach our emergency response team 24/7 by calling (763) 712-9712.
