Problem Gutters can Create a Water Damage Mess Inside a House in Dayton
Gutters Can Create A Big Water Damage Problem In Your Dayton Home
Ice storms and windy, wintry conditions give your Dayton home a real beating every year. Many components of your home's exterior can withstand this treatment better than other parts can handle. One of the more fragile parts of your home's exterior is your gutter system.
A faulty gutter system that contains clogs can direct water toward your Dayton home's exterior and quickly become an ongoing source of water damage. When your gutters continually force water against the house's siding, small amounts of water can get pushed inside. Also, downspouts can push water up against the foundation. This can lead to increasingly larger pools of standing water that slowly seep into the ground next to your home's basement.
SERVPRO employees can pump this water away from your home when necessary, although doing so does not permanently solve the problem. We can help you locate a responsible gutter repair service to fix your home's gutter system. The interior of your home needs specialized restoration of any water damage.
Water that passes through your siding, insulation, and other sections of your exterior walls often contains elements that stain otherwise undamaged walls. This staining can bleed through most paints, so we use a stain-blocking paint to keep new coats as fresh-looking as if no underlying stains existed.
When water seeps in slowly through the seams in your siding, it can easily get trapped on the top of ceilings below where the water enters the home. This can cause your ceiling to bow down, a dangerous condition that can cause injury to anyone in the affected room unexpectedly.
When we encounter such situations, drilling small weep holes from the side and allowing the water to drain slowly, followed by additional holes closer to the center, we can safely drain the water from the ceiling. As we air out the enclosed area and it becomes dry again, we can reattach it securely. This makes the ceiling safe again. Other areas in your home affected by faulty gutters and drain spouts also need drying out, which we perform quickly. We want to get your home back to its preloss state quickly.
