Storm Damage in Canoga Park: More than Just a Spring Shower

6/24/2016 (Permalink)

Electrical Lines Can Become a Hazard After a Storm

SERVPRO Is Standing By, Ready To Remediate Your Storm Damage

Storms can occur at any time of the year and any time of the day. Some are shorter than others, but can still create damaging winds and rains. These winds do not always directly affect your home's exterior, but can become so powerful that they topple trees and power lines. These tall objects can fall on your home or garage, creating damage in many different forms.

In Canoga Park, storm damage can involve more than heavy rains that only lead to water damage. Shingles may be ripped off, siding and windows might become cracked, support beams in roofs may be damaged and broken, and storm doors can come unhinged when a house shifts because of the increased weight from a telephone or utility pole. A tree landing on your roof can also create the same situation.
 
Fires Can Break Out Because of Storm Damage

Trees, although not as likely as poles, can also roll or slide, causing even more damage, before they are removed. Professional crews should remove such items. This type of work should never be carried out by the homeowner. An additional threat of downed power and telephone poles is that of fire from the electricity in the lines they are attached to. These lines do not pose only an electrical shock hazard, but also one of fire. If a line is touching or coming into contact with your home, this creates a very real fire risk.
