Colder temperatures may not always result in frozen pipes and water damage. At times it can be the snow itself! In this event, we see an outdoor patio sky window collapse due to the weight of snow. This extended area of the breakfast area was piled with snow and damaged the furniture within.

Storm damage can vary based on regions and weather patterns, and even with SERVPRO of Lancaster being based in the High Desert, this home was located almost an hour away. We were the first choice for storm damages and restoration.

Secondary Damage - Ongoing Roof Leak

Have you had your home thoroughly inspected this stormy season?

SERVPRO of Lancaster performed a routine inspection on this home, for water leaking from a residential ceiling. Our technician inspected the upstairs crawlspace and discovered a long-time issue caused by an undetected roof leak. Turns out, water had been leaking for quite some time above this false ceiling due to the level of erosion and secondary damage surrounding the source of loss. 

It's extremely important to keep in mind that a sudden water loss or leak, may or may not be as recent as one would assume. At times, water may be leaking from the source time and may remain undiscovered unless the proper inspection is performed. SERVPRO of Lancaster provided thorough inspections, with advanced moisture detection equipment to make sure there is no ongoing issue within your home.

Rainy Day Hazard: Downed Power Lines

As winter begins to climb towards its peak, weather patterns are shifting as well. One of the most common weather patterns is high wind rainstorms which are a common occurrence in the Antelope Valley. These high wind rainstorms can cause hazards throughout commercial and residential areas.
One of the most dangerous hazards is a downed power line or pole. This can cause fatal injuries if in close contact, and exemplified through the wet surrounding area. Here are a few tips to have in mind:

Stay Away: Do not approach or touch the wire or any person or object in contact with the wire. Serious injuries can others to you and others around you.

Call 911: Report an electrical emergency and inform about the downed power line.

Avoid Surrounding Water: If there is water puddled around or near the downed power line, stay as far away. Water conducts electricity and can cause serious injury to you and those around you.

Report one if you see it, and if others are already on the scene, help should be on its way. Stay safe and stay dry!
