Spring Thaw Can Cause Water Damage in Tallmadge, Ohio

2/17/2021 (Permalink)

Grass snow Thawing snow can cause flooding and water damage to your home or business in Akron.

Spring is just around the corner and this means there will be more sunshine and warmer air that will thaw out all the winter snow and ice. Being in Northeast Ohio the anticipation of the temperature change is exciting, but it is important to be aware of the disaster that could come from the winter thaw.

When the thawing begins, the water must go somewhere. Depending on the amount of water, many different results can occur. One of the most important things to watch for is flooding in your basement or crawl space. The water is going to naturally run down, which can cause water damage to anything in your basement, flooring, and walls.

Spring rainstorms can cause water damage to your property. You may encounter a leaking roof caused by wind damage or flooding from a storm, but there is a real possibility that future damage from standing water and wet damp areas can be overlooked.  When there is a continuing source of water, there is always a potential for mold. As the temperature begins to rise and everything is moist from thawing, keep an eye out for mold around your home. Specifically check closely in your basement, crawl space, and garage.

If you experience a water damage from the winter thaw happens, do not worry. SERVPRO of West Akron crews are available 24-hours a day. Give us a call at 330-867-5723 or visit our website at www.SERVPROwestakron.com we can make it “Like it never even happened.”
