Flood Damage Crews In Rochester Discuss Problems Associated With Blizzards

During the winter time in Rochester, storms can wreak havoc on your property. Sometimes blizzards can occur which can cause severe flood damage to your home. A blizzard is a vicious winter storm that brings about a combination of snow, wind and poor visibility. According to AccuWeather, the National Weather Service's official definition of a blizzard is a storm that brings with it snow, winds over 35 miles per hour and visibility of a quarter mile or less for more than three hours. The blowing snow conditions some of these storms cause can hurt your structure and force you to reach out to a professional flood damage restoration company such as SERVPRO.  

Cold, winter weather can bring about many conditions that can cause many building problems. During the winter in Rochester, flood damage occurs quite frequently.  Winter weather can cause your water pipes to freeze and make them burst and spill water all over your house. Excessive amounts of snow can also ruin structural components that make up your home. If the snow that falls is extremely wet and it accumulates quickly, the weight of the snow can overload your exterior structure. Sometimes, snow can build up on your roof and possibly cause it to collapse.  

If the snow sitting on top of your building gets too thick, cave-ins can take place which can create a hole in your structure for moisture to enter. If the interior of your home gets exposed during a snowstorm, snow can get inside and negatively affect your building materials and contents. Once the snow melts inside your warm home, water damage can start to build up in your dwelling's interior.

If water starts to affect any of the objects inside your home such as your carpet or furniture, it is wise to reach out to the professionals at SERVPRO. Our highly trained team has experience restoring buildings with all types of problems. We are good at helping you with any disaster and making your home seem "Like it never even happened."
