Damaging Florida Summer Thunderstorms
As Florida residents, we know all too well what water damage looks like this time of year. While we tend to enjoy the evening lightning storms which can be quite spectacular, the sudden torrential downpours have the opposite effect. Water damage to your home can be not as obvious following a downpour. Some rooms may be seem perfect but the damage to others are unnoticeable until maybe it’s too late. Knowing how to identify areas early on can protect you and your investment from major water damage problems.
What to look for:
- Warping in wood materials near obvious water entry points such as windows and doors can indicate water. If you notice folding of your wood or laminate flooring call us immediately.
- Discolored spots in ceilings and on walls are also a sign of possible water damage.
- Foundation cracks may be an indication that there are water problems beneath the surface.
- Mold found in the home is a definite sign of moisture being present and should not be ignored.
Keep in mind that damage from water can be extensive and costly. Restoration specialists like us at SERVPRO of South Orange County can help prevent such incidents from occurring if called upon in a timely manner.
