How Could I Have Prevented Storm Damage
September 1st is here! As I woke up this morning, I was excited to see another gloomy, cloudy, overcast morning. Growing up in Southern California, I longed for long days at the beaches and poolside. Now, as an adult, fall and sweater weather reign king.
Although our rainy season is not usually very long in the San Gabriel Valley, I enjoy every minute of it. I also understand the importance of making sure my home is safe and secure during cool weather storms.
My husband and I check our window and door seals to make sure they are in good condition and not damaged or missing. Doing so helps prevent water from entering our home when it rains. Improper sealing can lead to floor and wall damage, which can lead to mold if undetected.
After the first heavy rainfall, we also inspect our ceilings to make sure there are not any leaks in our roof. Roof damage can happen all throughout the year, but it is usually a rain leak that will make you notice them. Detecting them immediately can help serious flood damage in your home.
In the event that you do experience storm damage, call SERVPRO of Glendora / San Dimas for all of your water restoration needs.
