Wind damage can cause water damage

7/2/2019 (Permalink)

Water damage can occur from a wind storm if the shingles are damaged or missing

When high winds affect your home or business sometimes rain can follow. If this happens and your roof is exposed water damage may ensue. It is important to check your roof as soon as it is safe to climb up there. If you are not physically capable please get a roofer to inspect. Make sure to check your attic too. Water damage should be easy to spot. Look for insulation to be depressed in areas. This could mean water is dripping from the decking underneath your shingles. If this is occurring get a bucket placed under the drip and make sure to monitor the ceiling directly underneath this area. A small leak could create tons of secondary damage if not mitigated. 

If you have any questions or need roofing help please do not hesitate to call SERVPRO of Central East Baton Rouge Parish.

Deodorizing after a Louisiana Fire

Make sure to get your home or business cleaned by professionals if you experience fire damage

In Louisiana we have very high levels of humidity. If you experience a fire and do not get it professional deodorized the humidity levels could exacerbate the problem. Even if you have a small fire that doesn't cause a large amount of structural damage the soot that travels through the house and settles on surfaces could be pulled out as the summer approaches. As the humidity levels increase so will latent smells. SERVPRO of Central East Baton Rouge Parish understands this, which is why we encourage home owners or business owners to ask questions regarding the process. Make sure you are getting the treatment you deserve before the summer months arrive and you discover you didn't.
