Need Help for Storm Damage in Slidell? SERVPRO is Fast As Lightning

Flood Water Removal Technicians in Slidell Discuss Problems with Lightning

When a thunderstorm blows into Slidell, there is always a possibility something bad could happen to your house. Wind and rain can cause you to have to conduct extensive flood water removal. However, these two elements are not the only instance that could take place; lightning can also become a problem during a storm. During thunderstorms, lightning is a common occurrence, but usually, the strikes stay high in the sky. However, in some cases, the lightning bolts can get close to the earth and strike your house forcing you to call in a professional flood water removal company such as SERVPRO because we can provide fast 24/7 service.
 
Lightning bolts can bring with them quite a force sometimes, and they could blast off your roofing materials and create a hole in your structure. If the interior of your house gets exposed during the storm, there is a good chance you will need the help from our SERVPRO technicians for the flood water removal project in Slidell. Lightning strikes can create big holes in your roof. When a large gap in your roof opens during a rainstorm, water can quickly pour into your attic. If the hole goes unrepaired throughout the storm, moisture can go from your attic to your living area.
 
Water pouring into your living room and bedrooms coming from above can be a disaster. Lightning can cause much more damage than just fires. Any rainwater that enters from the outdoors is immediately labeled as grey water meaning there is a chance of contamination. However, once the grey rainwater comes into contact with your attic and insulation, it changes categories and gets classified as black. Category three contamination can contain pathogens, viruses, and in this case, fecal droppings from rodents.
 
If black water coming from your ceiling floods out your living area, there is a good possibility that many of your contents and building materials got ruined and must be removed. SERVPRO has IICRC certified technicians with the skills to restore your home to its preloss condition, whenever possible, "Like it never even happened."

If lightning ever blows a hole into your roof or exterior wall, call SERVPRO of Slidell at (985) 649-1516 to get help from our highly trained team 24 hours a day.

Keep an eye on the weather.
