Protecting Your Home from Water Damage

Properly taken care of gutters will result in a water damage free home!

Soon we will be approaching thunderstorm season.  With thunderstorms comes the possibility of water damage to your home or business.  Be proactive and protect your property by taking care of the outside, especially the gutters.

A rain gutter's main purpose is to funnel water off the roof and away from the home. But, if you do not take proper care of your gutters and clean them regular they can get clogged with leaves, pine needles, pine cones or other debris. The fascia boards that hold the gutter system are often made of wood. When gutters clog and fill with water, the boards start to deteriorate and rot. If a home has wood siding, clogged gutters can also cause water to overflow out of the gutter system and down the sides of the home.

Be proactive and take care of the outside of your home, so you do not experience water damage on the inside.  If it does happen, know that you can call SERVPRO of Hanover, Goochland & Caroline!
