Preventing Water Damage In The Spring

3/22/2024 (Permalink)

During the spring season, the risk of water damage rises as rainfall occurs.  Water can often enter a property due to structural damage and other issues.  Regular inspection and maintenance of your property is crucial in preventing storm damage.

  • Clear your gutters and downspouts of any debris.  A buildup in your drainage system can cause water to flow near your foundation, rather than away from it.
  • Ensure that there are no issues with water pooling around the foundation that can eventually find its way into a structure.
  • Windows and doors should be sealed to help prevent water from entering a property.
  • Check your sump pump for issues and install a battery backup in case of power failure.
  • Inspect your roof for signs of structural damage, such as missing roof tiles.  Repair these areas immediately.

Should your home or business suffer water or storm damage this season, SERVPRO of Lancaster East and Southern Lancaster County can quickly restore the property “Like it never even happened".  We provide emergency services for when the unexpected occurs.  We also have an entire reconstruction department on standby for storm disasters and other situations where areas need to be restored!
