Summertime Storms In The Rockies
SERVPRO® of Archuleta, La Plata, Montezuma and San Juan Counties is one call away to help restore your property from storm damage.
Living in the Four Corners area you know we have all four seasons and their extremes. In winter, we get ice storms, frozen water lines, and sometimes heavy snow. Summertime brings heat and fires and many different severe thunderstorms. The summer heat and mountain moisture build through the day, spawning thunderstorms that can drop several inches of water in a short time.
These heavy and sudden rains often overwhelm the storm drain & sewer systems and cause flash flooding & mud slides, Homeowners sometimes experience water backups in their basements and crawl spaces because the sump pumps cannot keep up or fail after being inundated with so much water in such a short time.
If you have standing water (flooding) in your basement, disconnect the main electrical switch to your home. If you don't know how to do that, call a professional or your local fire department to help you. If you are in doubt about your basement's electrical safety, it's best to stay out of it! Remember, "SAFETY, FIRST!"
Heavy Winds & Lightning
These severe thunderstorms can also cause more than just water damage. Dangerous winds and lightning are also components of these storms. Heavy winds can topple trees, remove shingles, and siding from your home. Even the windows to your home or cars can be broken from flying debris hurling through the air.
A lightning strike can cause a power surge and damage your appliances. That same strike can overheat and melt the protective sleeve of the wiring inside your walls, causing a fire to break out, in your attic, and other hidden areas. The National Fire Protection Association estimates that U.S. local fire departments responded to an estimated average of 22,600 fires started by lightning per year.
