Building Pop Up Parking Garages to avoid Storm Water

Storm Damage Building Pop Up Parking Garages to avoid Storm Water Rising Storm waters can cause damage in Parking Garages

One of the biggest issues when heavy rains cause flooding lies underneath the commercial buildings of the Pacific Northwest.  As the amount of water flowing onto city streets overwhelms the drainage system, cars parked inside parking garages begin to take on water damage.

The issue is a worldwide one and important enough that Danish architects have drawn up plans to build parking garages that rise with the water level.

Until this type of system is common practice, making sure your building's drainage system is adequate is a top priority.

If the rains do overcome the drainage system, SERVPRO is available to mitigate the water in the structure as well as restore the vehicles that received damage.

When the Power is Out, the Generator should Stay Out as well

Storm Damage When the Power is Out, the Generator should Stay Out as well Always place your generator Outside of the home for safety

When the lights start to flicker one's first instinct is to grab the flashlights to be ready if the power goes out.

There is a large number of homeowners and businesses that own generators that can keep the vital systems in a building running.

The generators, which run on gas, exhaust fumes very similar to your automobile.  Making sure these fumes don't come back into your home is extremely important.

Generators should be placed Outside in order to exhaust the fumes out into the open.  Even putting the generator int he garage is not safe practice, the generator should be outside of the home and venting away from any fresh air inlet.

When the power goes off and your property sustains property damage, call SERVPRO to do your repairs and mitigate the damage.

Cold weather storms can cause damages to your home

Storm Damage Cold weather storms can cause damages to your home Trees are often the cause of property damage during a storm

Severe freezing with high winds are a recipe for downed trees which can cause property damage.  Every year the Puget Sound experiences a few storms that pass through leaving millions of dollars in property damage.

The biggest source of property damage comes by way of downed trees which fall onto the roofs of homes.

Damage to Gutters and Siding are just a couple of the types of damage a home will incur.  Broken windows and roof penetrations are two types of damage that require emergency mitigation services to cover up the opening in the structure.

When damage from the cold and wind occur SERVPRO is the choice for repairing your damaged home.

Use extra caution when navigating flooded roads during a storm

Storm Damage Use extra caution when navigating flooded roads during a storm Use extra caution when navigating flooded roads during a storm

Driving on the roads during a storm doesn't seem like that big of a deal to some.  Getting home is often the biggest concern on someone's mind and choosing an alternate route just doesn't seem efficient.

When flood waters raise it is hard to distinguish just how high the water level is.  Underestimating the power of a few inches of rain has left more than one Seattle area driver stranded in the middle of the river flowing road.

Always pay attention to the emergency ponderer's warning signs on roads and back trails.  Using extra caution when signs aren't present reduces the risk of being stranded as well.

When water levels flood roads and buildings sustain damage, SERVPRO is your choice for repair and mitigation.
