Clogged Gutters Can Allow Flooding In Your Phoenix Residence
Clogged Gutters Can Allow Flooding
Throughout the changing of the seasons every year, your Phoenix home might find itself waging war against debris, leaves and other blockages to your gutter system. This critical network of water diversion works to send runoff from your roof to areas away from your house's vulnerable foundation. When this system fails or does not work as it should, the results could be dire.
The gutters surrounding the eaves of your Phoenix home exist to help prevent instances of flood damage from occurring. Unfortunately, many homeowners do not even know about a problem with this network of channeling until it is malfunctioning and causing a backflow or overflow situation to arise. When you find this water making its way into your house, it is time to call in some professionals who can help you handle this situation as efficiently as possible.
From the moment that our SERVPRO team arrives at your home, we work to assess what needs to happen to seal up penetration points in the blockwork. Often the application of hydraulic cement can prevent water from continuing through and allow for extraction and drying to occur successfully.
Depending on the severity of the flooding inside of your house, our SERVPRO professionals might only need to use portable pumps to remove the water. Larger quantities might require the use of pump trucks from our fleet of vehicles.
Drying is one of the most essential components to flood damage restoration. Lack of proper drying can lead to further weakening of construction materials in your home, can allow for more water penetration in the immediate future, and can also allow for unfortunate damages like mold growth to occur in this affected area.
A clogged or damaged gutter system cannot divert the water away from your home, and it eventually allows it to pool by the foundation and force its way inside. When you contend with a situation like that, reach out to our experienced SERVPRO of East Phoenix team of restoration specialists. We can help you remove the water and bring your home back to the way that it should be. Give us a call anytime at (602) 507-6163.
