We saw an amazing map the other day that showed snowfall in every US state except Florida. That doesn't happen often, but we figured that since it did it would be a good chance to remind people of the most common water damage events that can happen due to cold weather and snow. For many in the US, the thought of getting home water damage from a cold snap doesn't even register on their radar. But the truth is, any home can be susceptible to cold weather, and that's especially true for homes in the South that may not be built in such a way to protect the home's vital infrastructure. So now that almost everybody across the US had a nice scare, let's talk through what you need to be aware of in order to protect your home from expensive water damage.   Ice dam formations on your roof   This is more common in colder climates...

It's not something most flood damage restoration companies spend a lot of time talking about, but it's absolutely the bedrock foundation upon which our services must be performed. One of the things you notice right off the bat when fielding a call from a home or business owner who has just discovered water damage in their property is how frantic they are. It's definitely understandable, and a lot of that chaos is driven by their lack of understanding about the work we do and its results. So let's talk about trust in both us and the water damage restoration process.
