Heavy Rainfall from a storm can damage your Cleveland, OH home

8/9/2022 (Permalink)

The effect of heavy rainfall and the possible damage to your home may depend on the construction materials, the location of the house and its general state of repair.

During a heavy rainfall, you may realize that there are weak spots in your roof.  The water can leak into the attic, ruining insulation or the wood may become warped or deteriorated. A leaking roof may even cause mold contamination and growth.

Basement flooding can be a consequence of heavy rainfall.  The heavy rainfall can saturate the soil and the pressure can push water through the cracks in the basement wall or up through the floor.  Damage to the structure as well as your personal possessions in the basement would be likely.  Mold growth and possible damage to the electric panel may occur.

If gutters are clogged or not working properly, they can overflow causing damage to the siding.  This may also promote mold inside the walls.

If you experience storm damage or heavy rainfall to your home, call SERVPRO  of Medina County/Gateway/Western Lake County for your water mitigation services today!  1-800-933-7179.
