spring weather damage

with spring comes the big thaw

During the spring season, warming weather conditions and a blend of precipitation often contribute to ideal situations for excess water to develop. An accumulation of water can have damaging consequences to properties.

Property damage can range from small leaks and damage to interior walls, to completely inundating buildings. If severe, water damage can even put stress on the structural integrity of a property. That’s why it’s so important to get a professional restoration team on your side the moment you notice water damage.

Be Flood aware

In the spring, when the ground is still frozen, thawing snow and heavy rainfall heighten the risk of water damage to residential and commercial properties.

  • Water seepage through leaks in the roof or basement foundation after heavy precipitation
  • Burst pipes
  • Blocked or backed-up sewers and drains
  • Overflow from nearby lakes and rivers
  • Pooling of water from thawing snow and ice because of slow drainage

Reduce the risk of mold growth

The excess water and moisture caused by spring showers and melting snow also leads to another hazard: mold growth, especially in dark spaces that do not dry naturally. For residential and commercial property owners, it is important to be aware of the environmental triggers that feed mold growth. On properties where water damage from spring flooding has occurred, mold growth poses a severe threat to the sanitation of a property.
