Possible Threats to Your Home This Winter

1/17/2019 (Permalink)

Are you prepared for the possible threats of a winter storm this year? Although you may not realize, winter storms can be very hard on your home. Below are some possible effects that a winter storm might have on your home:

  1. Freezing Pipes- Sub freezing temperatures, mixed with poor insulation can cause your pipes to freeze and burst, possibly causing a water damage in your home.
  2. Roof Damage- Winter storms can easily cause roof damage in several ways. High winds often associated with storms can easily blow debris at your roof, or cause lose shingles to fly off. The weight of a high accumulation of snow could also cause a weak roof to cave, or a nearby limb to fall and tear a hole in your roof. This could cause a sudden rush of snow and water in your home.
  3. Fires- Often winter storms can also cause downed electrical wires and loss of power. Once power has been lost, homeowners must seek supplemental heat from other sources. Things such as open flames in fire places or Personal heaters that run on different types of fuel can pose a significant threat if not handled safely.

Hopefully this knowledge will help keep you safe this winter storm season, however if you experience a loss from a winter storm, SERVPRO of Kirksville is always here to help. Call or text us at 660-665-3390 today!
