Flood Damage Technicians Talk About Hail

During these summer months, severe thunderstorms often riddle the Colorado Springs region. The storms that come off the mountains and hit the foothills sometimes bring about hail. Hail forms when water circulates inside a storm system and gets pushed up above the freezing level. When this happens, large frozen chunks of water fall from the sky and likely ruin your day. Recently, hailstorms have been rampant and producing baseball to softball size chunks. When pieces of ice get that big in size, they can be destructive once they land. Everyone has seen the problems caused to vehicles when they are left out of the garage. Dents on the hoods and roofs of cars bigger than a silver dollar have been showing up on many people's brand new rides. Experienced paintless dent removal experts have been called out from all over the country to cater to the excessive amount of automobile insurance claims.

Unfortunately, your car is not the only one of your investments that is at risk. SERVPRO's flood damage experts in Colorado Springs have been inundated with calls related to issues with houses and properties as well. Hail can cause numerous problems at your residence. Especially when they get very large, these chunks of ice have been known to hit homes so hard that they can ruin a structure.

The local news stations have been filling their nightly broadcasts with images of the devastation hail can cause. Local residents have all seen the photos of giant chunks of hail shattering windows and destroying roofs. When they get to be the size of softballs and crash into a building nothing good can result.

Our SERVPRO technicians have recently been getting a lot of calls related to the recent hailstorms. As soon as we show up at your house, we inspect your property and give you the scope of work involved. The first step we take is to temporarily seal up the hole in your structure caused by the ferocious storm so that no more moisture can enter. Then, the restoration process begins.

During mitigation procedures, our SERVPRO experts first extract all of the moisture they can. Then rapid structural drying commences to reduce damage and prevent mold growth. If you ever receive hail damage, call SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes at (719) 434-4626 as soon as it happens.
