Winter Storms: One Storm, Many Hazards
Winter Storms can bring many hazards
Many destructive impacts can come out of a single winter storm. Are you prepared for the coming winter? The array of hazards that can come from a winter storm are sometimes countless.
- Ice: Accumulations of a half inch or more, because of it's weight can cause widespread destruction and power outages and can have a crippling impact.
- Wet Snow: Much like ice accumulation, wet snow adds extra weight and stress, increasing the chance of damage. Moist snow sticks easily to trees and power lines.
- Snow on Roofs: Several feet from one or multiple storms accumulating on a roof can add stress, causing them to collapse.
- Flooding After the Snow: A rapid warm-up or rain following a winter storm with an expansive snow pack can set the stage for major flooding.
Melting snow and ice after a storm can also cause damage to the inside of your home or business. Call the professionals at SERVPRO of Quincy to assess the situation and put you to Pre-Winter condition, "Like it never even happened."
