Wind Damage Can Open Your Dallas Home To Flooding

Severe weather can affect Dallas homes in many ways. From torrential rainfall to gale-force winds that can uproot trees and knock over small structures, many properties cannot withstand these conditions for prolonged periods. Wind damage can affect your property severely depending on the force and the direction it travels. With the right conditions, you can lose portions of your siding and shingles off your roof, even if neither of these elements is aging or compromised already.

When siding gets pulled, your gutter system can fail which can lead to flood damage to your Dallas property. What happens in these situations is either a pooling of water around the foundation of your house or direct exposure to runoff and torrential rainfall from the missing siding material. Our SERVPRO professionals can respond fast to storm damages, helping to lessen the impact of flooding on the inside of your house with our advanced equipment and expertise.

From the time that our team first arrives at your home, we can get to work on extraction and emergency board up services and tarping. Depending on the damage to your home, these methods can keep the flood damages from getting worse while extraction and drying get underway. Once the storm has passed, we have professionals ready and able to get to work on restoring the outside of your home as well.

Storm Damage SERVPRO Can Restore Your Dallas Home After Flood Damage  Our team of experts has the right tools to restore your home after a flood.

Flood Damage can also Occur in Second Level Areas of Homes in Dallas

When your home sits in a relatively low area of Dallas, it can become flooded more easily than homes on higher ground. Something as seemingly benign and necessary as construction a few miles away can cause water to divert from past drainage patterns and cause you problems. 

Other situations can also create problems for Dallas neighborhoods leading up to flood damage. Some of these can pour what seems cleaner water into homes, but SERVPRO treats all flooding as Category 3 water. Cleaning this level up requires sanitation practices after extraction of the water, as well as drying homes' interiors to pre-flood aridity. 

After we extract the water invading your home and remove all the flood damaged areas from walls and floors, we can begin drying everything from top to bottom. Drying second-story areas is also essential because of the amount of evaporation that takes place in flooded structures. Even in colder climates, air currents carry moisture to drier areas. This continues as long as excess moisture remains present. 

To fight this effect and prevent damage from taking place in upper levels of your home, SERVPRO uses air movers to prevent condensation on cooler materials. We also use desiccant machines to extract water vapor from the air. Having these run upstairs is more effective than only using machines where the flooding took place, on ground levels, merely because it catches water molecules where they travel. 

As we finish clearing your home of residual moisture, we can also use our hydroxyl generators to help clean the air of odors. While ozone machines cannot safely run in damp environments without running the risk of discoloring textiles, or in occupied houses, hydroxyl generators do not pose the same risks. Because it uses UV light to neutralize odors at their sources, hydroxyl so safe enough that food-packing facilities use it to improve working conditions without compromising food safety.
