Stay Aware of Winter Weather Hazards
Snowfall can be heavy and lead to falling tree limbs. If possible, remove the ice as quickly as possible.
Winter weather doesn’t only have the ability to affect your mood, but it could also negatively affect your home as well. With freezing temperatures, heavy snowfall, forceful winds, and ice- the damage to your home can be severe and happen quickly.
It’s important during winter that you keep an eye on severe winter storm advisories, freezing temperatures, or heavy snow/ice possibilities. Winter storms can cause the following to happen to your home:
- Ice dams and snowfall can be very heavy and lead to a leaking roof, falling tree limbs and damaged gutters. If possible, remove the ice as quickly as possible.
- Freezing temperatures can cause frozen pipes that lead to water leaks. Leave cabinet doors open to allow heat to hit the pipes and keep water dripping to help with the complete freezing of the pipe.
- Wet conditions can lead to dry rot and mold around or inside of your home. These conditions can be very dangerous and must be taken care of immediately.

How To Prevent Water Damage This Winter
Whether it’s a leaky pipe, devastating storm, or malfunctioning appliances—water damage is a homeowner’s worst nightmare.
Whether it’s a leaky pipe, devastating storm, or malfunctioning appliances—water damage is a homeowner’s worst nightmare. Just the idea of water damage to your home is enough to make a homeowner shiver. Thankfully, many sources of water damage can be prevented.
SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties has a few tips to help you avoid water damage to your home this winter. By following these tips, your home will be at a lesser risk of a water damage disaster.
- Check your water heater. Water heaters normally last about 8-12 years. However, if it is not properly cared for, it can corrode and cause leaks or overflow. To ensure your water heater is up to par, check it periodically for moisture or water surrounding the stand it rests on.
- Clean your gutters. If there is a buildup of debris in your gutters it will stop them from doing their job properly. As a result, water can spill over through the roof, into the foundation, and down to your basement or crawl space.
- Prevent frozen pipes. Frozen pipes can cost thousands of dollars in damage and put your home at risk of mold and microbial growth. Pipes located in the outside walls, crawl spaces, and attics are the most vulnerable to freezing. Insulate the pipes that are exposed to cold air and keep the faucet dripping during extremely cold weather.
By implementing these tips, you are less likely to experience water damage this winter. However, should you find your home with water damage, give SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties a call! The SERVPRO team is faster to any disaster and will make it, “Like it never even happened.”
Many problems remain after a house fire is extinguished.
In the case of a fire disaster in your home, there is more to solving the problem than just having the fire put out.

Not only will there be debris, toxic smoke, and leftover water; but there are also damaged personal belongings that will need restored.

Following the fire, SERVPRO will mitigate damage, provide water restoration, and cleanup all smoke damage. Contents inside must then be evaluated for recovery, taking into consideration:
