Flood Damage In Wetumpka Can Cause Problems With Your Roof And Attic

Any time a storm makes its way into Wetumpka, conditions can develop that could cause you problems with your building materials. Excessive rains can saturate materials on your building's exterior and possible cause flood damage to occur inside your home. When the rain gets thick, it can deteriorate shingles and cause your roof to leak. The wind created during the storm can blow rocks or branches into your home and create holes in your roof's structure. Once there is a small hole in your building, rainwater can get into the interior of your house and cause extensive flood damage.
 
If anything on the inside or outside of your building gets ruined after a storm, it is important to call in a professional restoration company like SERVPRO. Once flood damage in Wetumpka takes place the problems can slowly get worse if they are not treated immediately. Saturated materials can lose their structural integrity if they do not get dried out quickly. Elevated moisture levels in materials inside your home can increase the indoor relative humidity level which can create more problems with your building materials. If organic substances inside your house stay wet for more than 48 hours, then mold can develop.
 
The two most common places to suffer from moisture-related issues after a storm are your roof and attic. Once something destroys your shingles during a rainstorm, water can get the wood underneath wet. First, the roof's structure gets damaged, then moisture can find its way into your attic. Since your roof is made out of wooden materials and there is mostly wood inside your attic, moisture levels must be dropped quickly so that mold cannot develop and spread.
 
To accomplish rapid structural drying, our SERVPRO technicians utilize a mixture of dehumidification and air moving equipment. When working in attics, we can seal off the area with a containment chamber so that drying takes place rapidly. If you ever find your attic wet after a severe rainstorm, call SERVPRO of Prattville at (334) 358-1186 any time of the day.
