Ways Spring Weather Can Damage Your Home

Ways Spring Weather Can Damage Your Home

Fire and Water Damage

Every spring is different, especially in North Carolina. You never know what kind of weather the spring months will bring from year to year. Some springs bring mild, sunny days and other winters can bring lots of rain, wind, and dangerous weather. But did you know that even mild springs can actually be really tough on your house? Here are a few ways that weather could potentially damage your home:

  • Wind: Wind can topple trees and branches, causing damage to your roof or other parts of your house. Exposure to the elements can increase your utility bills and make your house vulnerable to mold from rain and melting snow. Wind also blows leaves into your gutter, which can lead to clogged downspouts. When your gutter is clogged, it can lead to water leaking into your home, flooding basements, and cracking foundations.
  • Rapidly changing weather: If you have a sump pump, changing temperatures can cause movement in pipes, thus forcing water out at weak spots. The possibility of leaks, mold, and mildew in your home is a real threat. Colder temperatures also make us want to close our homes off to preserve the heat inside. With all the warm, moist air trapped inside, mold can quickly grow without proper ventilation.

    Everyone with ServiceMaster of Buncombe County was wonderful to work with - they were prompt, answered all of my questions, and helped guide us when we had to make decisions about the repairs we needed. They were so professional as well as being friendly and courteous. Chad did a great job managing our project as well as responding to me quickly when I needed to ask him a question or talk over issues with him. Our kitchen had to be gutted due to a leaking washing machine. The repairs they completed look great and I'm so happy with the results. I would highly recommend ServiceMaster of Buncombe County.
