Weather damage restoration guide from the experts at ServiceMaster DCS.

Weather damage from natural disasters, such as floods, hurricanes, and winter storms, can have overwhelming effects on your home and your family. Many times, water causes the most damage by entering your home through damaged rooftops or broken windows. Once inside, water can ruin cherished items like photos or stuffed animals and saturate the structural elements of your home, putting it at risk for even greater danger.

Tropical systems consist of tropical storms, hurricanes and El Niño cycles. These storms often combine high-speed winds and torrential downpours, which increases your risk of broken windows, flooding and structural weather damage.


In addition to freezing temperatures, winter weather conditions can include rain, heavy snowfall, ice dams, sleet and blizzards. Dents from hail, roof damage from ice dams, and flooding from frozen and burst pipes and snowmelt are just a few examples of the potential weather damages that can be wrought by severe winter weather.


Your home could be impacted by a wildfire blazing nearby, even if the structure never comes in contact with flames. Smoke and soot from wildfires can stain your home’s exterior and seep inside through tiny, microscopic openings. Moreover, wildfires often consume foliage, rendering ground unstable and creating dangerous conditions for potential landslides.


Shifting fault lines can harm the structure of your home’s foundation, while the rigorous shaking often causes superficial damage, as well. Coastal areas that experience earthquakes are particularly at risk for these side effects, along with water damage from tsunamis.


High-speed wind gusts, heavy rainfall or a combination of both, pose a higher risk for property destruction than your basic rain shower. Severe weather storms including thunderstorms, flash floods, hurricanes, hail and tornadoes far surpass average storms with their sheer force and potential for damage.

Don’t worry. We’ll be by your side every step of the way to ensure your home and belongings are restored as quickly and safely as possible after any major weather disaster.
