Understanding the Threat of Home Damage in the Reno Area | SERVPRO of Reno Southwest
Our homes are constantly battling the elements and are being exposed to threats on a daily basis. Strong weather, potential fires, structural aging and even unexpected home accidents like a broken window can leave you with frustrating damage and yet another phone call to your insurance company.
While it may seem overwhelming to think about what could happen, we can’t live that way! Natural disasters and accidents can’t always be predicted, but understanding how they occur can help you stay better prepared.
SERVPRO® of Reno Southwest is here to help make sure you recover faster and more efficiently. Read on to learn more about the risks in our area.
We experience all four seasons here, but we see more sunny days here than we do cloudy or rainy ones. Because of that, a single heavy rainstorm can bring significant flooding issues to our community, especially to the residents that live near the Truckee River.
In addition to flooding concerns, general damage from water issues, house fires or accidents can also occur in the blink of an eye.
Water damage can occur from natural or manmade sources. Floods and heavy rain can leave your property soaked, or a faulty dishwasher could lead to a growing puddle of water all over your brand-new hardwood floors. The same is true for fire, but fire situations are most often started by some type of human error.
As if it wasn’t frustrating enough to deal with one threat at your home, a singular disaster can lead to compounded damage. For example, a flooded basement will leave your rooms and carpet wet, but lingering moisture can eventually spark mold growth that leads to structural damage to your foundation.
Fire also has the ability to cause further issues. Smoke and soot can spread to other rooms or levels of your house that never were affected by the flames, and water damage can be present wherever the firefighting efforts took place.
Natural or manmade disasters can be equally destructive, so recovering quickly is usually everyone’s top priority. Contact SERVPRO for a fast recovery no matter what happens at your house.
We will get right to work drying out your water-damaged home by extracting the lingering moisture from your walls, floors and ceiling and then we will get started on your repairs. This may include things like mold mitigation, deep-cleanings or remodels of the affected area.
We are also here to help you overcome fire damage. Our team will remove burned debris, secure your home and work on removing soot and smoke damage from every part of your home. If a section of your home was damaged beyond repair, we will tear it down and build it back to exactly how you want it.
Working with our talented team ensures that you don’t have to hunt around for different contractors to get the job done. We can handle every aspect of your restoration so that your recovery process is smooth and simple.
