Protect Your Snellville Home From Heavy Water Damage | SERVPRO® of Gwinnett County

4/5/2021 (Permalink)

If you need help dealing with any damage caused by water, contact SERVPRO of Gwinnett County South today.

If you’re a homeowner in Snellville, you’ve probably already thought a lot about the ways severe weather (and water) can damage your home.

You probably have a plan in place for flash floods, strong thunderstorms, or home malfunctions like burst pipes or refrigerator line failures. But there are water damage hazards you might not have considered.

Have you thought about the damage heavy rains can do?

You may not have. But rain can damage your home, and rain is more common than natural disasters we dread, like flash floods or tornadoes.

Here’s some good news. Rain damage, in many cases, can be prevented if your home is thoughtfully maintained.

Stopping the Damage From Heavy Rains

Members of our team are experts in water damage. So we see many of the issues that can lead to preventable water damage firsthand.

Our team has some helpful ideas to make your yard and home safer this spring and summer.

Take stock of your yard. Knowing how your yard drains (and how it works with your home) is vital. If you notice that your yard is draining toward your home, then you might want to get in touch with a landscaping expert to look for ways to protect your yard.

Choose to landscape your yard thoughtfully. Many people choose plants and flowers because they like the aesthetic they create. But choosing landscaping items for protection can ensure your home is ready for heavy rain. Native plants, trees and bushes can be vital in protecting your home from water damage.

Consider sealing your roof. Sealing your roof can help protect your home from wind and water damage. In fact, experts estimate that almost 95% of water damage is caused by water seeping through gaps in your roof and shingles, which can be prevented with this step.

If you need help dealing with damage caused by water, fire or any other issue, we’re here to help you restore your home. We have crews who are available 247 in the event of an emergency. Contact us at any time to learn more about us and how we can help you restore your home to its original state.
