Heavy Rainfall = Heavy Damage

A worker scooping up insulation after a storm After the Iowa Derecho, our team had to help many homes with storm damage which included the removal of wet insulation.

In the case of a storm, heavy rainfall can infiltrate a home or business very quickly. Most of the time it is a problem in the lower level or basement of a home or in a crawl space. Water can seep in and penetrate under garage doors, around improperly sealed windows, and through cracks in the cement foundation or walls. It is important to note that water will always travel the least path of resistance. If you find water where you don't want it, and you don't know how to remove it, then call your local SERVPRO Franchise Professionals. It is essential to remove the water as soon as possible to prevent further wicking into the structure materials of the building. It can be difficult to remove without the right equipment. This is where we, SERVPRO franchise professionals, come in. We will extract the standing water and then set drying equipment to remove moisture from the structure. Always remember to call right away when you see a problem for help.  Water is something you want to clean up right away so further problems don't occur.
