Winter is coming to an end, and with it can come unwanted disasters. Home disasters can occur from many different things, which we will discuss in detail. It is important to look out for these disasters as the weather becomes warmer and the snow begins to melt!

Sewage Backflow

Sewage backflow can occur as snow begins to melt. If there is a significant amount, there is a chance that it can cause your sewage system to back up on the interior and exterior of your home. Sewage often smells terrible, but it is also hazardous to your health because of the viruses and bacteria it contains. If you have a sewage backup, it is best to contact a professional for cleanup.

Flooding From Snowmelt

If you have snow close to the exterior of your home, there is a chance it will call flooding in your basement. The excess water will have nowhere else to go and will enter your basement, causing significant flooding.

Roof Leaks

It is no surprise that missing shingles, gutter, and structural damages are common after a harsh winter. You will likely have water damage in your attic and possibly inside your walls if this happens.

Burst Pipes

As frozen pipes unthaw, there is always a chance that they will burst. If a pipe bursts, it can create flooding inside your property. The water can spread rapidly to other areas before you notice.

Mold Growth

Mold growth is expected after any of the above occurs on your property. If you have experienced water damage, it is best to contact a disaster cleanup company to handle the water removal and water damage restoration.

It is important to be aware of the above disasters, as they can quickly occur on your property. With the proper knowledge, you can prevent these disasters from happening. If you experience any of the above disasters, contact a professional to ensure the clean-up is completed correctly.
