Tips for Preventing Wind Damage

Michigan residents know a thing or two about severe weather, and sometimes there is little advanced warning of a severe weather event. One part of the home that can be damaged in a severe storm is the garage door. When high-wind hammers the garage door it can cause it to buckle and become damaged. SERVPRO® of St. Clair Shores responds to storm damage emergencies 24 hours a day in the Roseville area, and our team of highly trained technicians will work quickly and efficiently to mitigate the damage.

Here are some tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to protect your home from wind damage:

  • Inspect your garage door to make sure it can withstand strong winds and have reinforcing supports installed if necessary.
  • Cover doors and windows to prevent broken glass and damage from flying debris. Consider installing storm windows.
  • Inspect your roof and make sure that at least six nails or staples hold down each shingle beneath the edges of the overlapping shingles. Install a waterproof underlayment under the shingles to prevent water from entering the structure in the event the wind blows the shingles off the roof.
  • Remove trees too close to the home.
  • Anchor potential projectiles like furniture, grills, and small objects.

Roof Leak in Roseville?

12/28/2020 (Permalink)

A waterspout is draining directly onto a home’s roof, causing damage to the roof shingles and water damage inside the house. We specialize in water damage restoration in the St. Clair Shores area.

Downspout downer

Winter has come to Roseville and having a safe, dry home and a sound roof is important. Roof leaks happen for many reasons, but they mainly happen because the shingles are missing granules in the shingle composition, or the shingles are cracked or missing. It is a good idea to have your roof inspected by a professional once a year so minor repairs do not become bigger repairs and major headaches later!

Downspouts should be installed so they redirect rainwater away from the structure. The downspout in this picture is allowing water to cascade directly onto the roof, and the water has damaged the roof singles.

SERVPRO® of St. Clair Shores responds to water damage emergencies 24 hours a day and has a team of highly trained water restoration technicians on call and ready to assist you. Although every water emergency is different; these are the steps we follow when restoring water damage:

 Step 1: Emergency Contact

Step 2: Inspection and Damage Assessment

Step 3: Water Removal/Water Extraction

Electric Switch Plate Fire in The Villages of Grosse Pointe Shores?

12/7/2020 (Permalink)

A faulty light switch in a house is on fire. We restore fire, soot, and smoke damage in St. Clair Shores.

It could have been much worse.

I live in The Villages of Grosse Pointe Shores, and one day the switch plate in the hall felt warm, and I meant to tell my husband about it. But it slipped my mind, and the next day I smelled fire, and sure enough, that light switch was ablaze! Thankfully the St. Clair Shores Fire Department came out and extinguished the blaze. Although the fire damage was minimal, the smell of smoke permeated the entire house; I had soggy hall carpeting leftover from the firefighting efforts, a fire-damaged wall, and a switch plate that needed replacement.

I called SERVPRO® of St. Clair Shores, and they sent out a team of fire restoration technicians to mitigate the damage and conduct an assessment. They immediately extracted the water in the hallway and set up dehumidifiers and air blowers to get the rest of the excess moisture out of the walls and floors. They repaired the faulty switch plate, replaced the damaged drywall, and cleaned and deodorized everything compromised by the fire. Yay!

A drop of water is falling from a leaking shower head. St. Clair Shores residents know we restore water damage 24 hours a day!

Do you have a water leak?

Did you know that you can tell if you have a leak in your water pipes by examining your winter water use? According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), if your family of four uses more than 12,000 gallons a month, you probably have a serious leak problem. Common types of leaks include a leaky faucet, showerhead, or a worn toilet flapper, and these types of leaks can be fixed pretty inexpensively. However, you may have a leak inside a wall or under the house, and this type of leak may be causing hidden water damage that will become a costly repair if not treated quickly.

Thankfully, SERVPRO® of St. Clair Shores has a team of water damage restoration specialists on call 24 hours a day that have been restoring damage in the St. Clair Shores community for years. Although every water emergency is different, we use this six-step approach for these kinds of jobs:
