Last year we had a lot of trees fall on homes

According to OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration), more people are killed by falling trees every year (100+) than are killed by sharks (about 4-7 per year).

If you’re in the house when a tree falls, leave the house and the property as soon as possible. Beware of downed electrical lines, and if you have gas lines, do not use your cell phone to call for help until you are away from the house. Use the safest route possible to get away from the house.

Flood Water has entered a home , coming in at the bottom of a door that has had it's water resistant weather barrier damaged

Flash Flooding can cause damage by backyard entry door

The bottom weatherstrip (or door sweep) on the exterior doors were worn out after eight (or more) years of daily use. Most people notice the problem when wind driven rainwater leaks under the door. The weatherstrip needs to be snug against the door threshold for a good seal and it wears out over time as the door is opened and closed.

Sadly, this homeowner had to learn the hard way, that it needed to be replaced. While they were not affected by the flooded river, the amount of rain that came down crept under his door and into his house.

Rain water and mold damage from severe storm

Rain water passes through the atmosphere before falling to the ground, so it can pick up any contaminants in the air. Mold spores are one of the most common rain water containments.  If a storm causes damage to your roof or drainage system, it's best to get the professionals at SERVPRO of Winston-Salem North, a call to dry out and remove any water, before the mold has a chance to take root.
