Is Heavy Snow Causing Your Roof to Leak into Your Rochester Home?

Why SERVPRO Is Heavy Snow Causing Your Roof to Leak into Your Rochester Home? Heavy snow can damage roofs, leading to water damage inside your home.

Flood Extraction Technicians In Rochester Discuss Removal Procedures

After a snowstorm hits Rochester, it is possible that your home can suffer from problems with excessive moisture. Once the snow starts to melt, you might notice that your roof or exterior wall has leaked, forcing you to call in a professional flood extraction company like SERVPRO. When the snow comes down in full force, it is possible that the weight can break roof shingles or other building materials and allow moisture to leak inside. Once water makes its way into your house, it can ruin structural components and create situations where mold can develop. When dealing with flood extraction, we can remove moisture when it is in its liquid form and once it is water vapor.
To remove moisture, when it is in a liquid form our SERVPRO technicians use truck-mounted extractors and specialized attachment tools. Our highly trained team knows that it is quicker for flood extraction in Rochester to take place when water is in its liquid form than when it becomes water vapor. To begin the extraction phase, we first remove all standing water present. If the standing water is deep, we can use submersible pumps to put the moisture into a sewer drain. Next, we extract water from your floors and furniture using a truck-mounted or a portable extractor.
During the extraction phase, we start with standing water and then remove moisture from porous materials like carpet and fabrics. Our SERVPRO technicians attach various tools to the extractors for different materials.  We begin the rapid structural drying process after all liquid H2O gets removed from your contents and building materials.
Anytime organic materials like paper or wood get wet it is possible that mold can develop if the substances do not get dried out within 48 hours. When drying a structure, we utilize advanced technology and equipment that creates the perfect environment to speed up the natural evaporation process.
If you ever happen to notice wet contents or building materials after a snowstorm, call SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester at (863) 446-0258 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
