Is a Windstorm a Tornado?

During a windstorm the winds are strong and violent but without any or little precipitation. Tornadoes carry a violent windstorm by a twisting funnell shaped cloud.
During a windstorm the wind is at least 34 mph that damages buildings and trees. If there is any precipitation it will be light. Windstorm damage is caused by the short bursts of high speed gusts or long periods of sustained winds.
Windstorms can last from a few minutes up to several hours to even days. Wind that travels in a straight line caused by the gust front of an approaching thunderstorm is called a Derecho. The wind in a Derecho can cause widespread damage to the landscape. They can peek at 100 mph and destroy trees and homes.
With wind damage comes roof and window damage. This will allow rainfall to enter the home causing interior and structure damage. SERVPRO of the Quad Cities is here to get your water damage under control. We are highly trained specialist in water and storm damage.

Basement Flooding

basement, Flooding waters, brick wall Flooded Basement? Call your local SERVPRO!

Immediate action is crucial when dealing with flooded basements. SERVPRO of the Quad Cities is locally owned and located here in the Shoals Area. We service your emergency needs 24/7 with highly trained technicians. Water damage to a basement can be caused by persistent rain fall, a broken pipe, or a faulty sump pump. 

When you have flooding in the basement from a pipe that has burst, shut off water to the basement.  During a storm with heavy rain, it is not so easy to turn off the source. You will need to wait until the storm is over to start mitigation. Depending on the amount of water a sump pump or a pool pump can be used to extract water.

There are several warning signs of basement flooding that can be seen.  When there are visible water stains on the flooring or walls there has been previous flooding. If there has already been flooding the chances of a reoccurrence is great. Foundation cracks can be a sign of flooding as well.

Flooding can lead to access moisture causing cracks to form. The moisture can also cause wood and supports to rot. This can compromise the structure of your home.

Taking precautionary measures to prevent basement flooding can help eliminate the water accumulating and save on costly repairs. Having gutters and downspouts installed or kept cleaned out if already installed.  Have a sump pump that has been well maintained and in good working condition. Window well covers are an option as well.

Mother Nature can cause havoc on our residence resulting in extreme expenses and structural damage.  The sooner your water damage is addressed the sooner your home will be back in living condition.  We work on emergency and non-emergency mitigation claims 24/7. If your basement has flooding, call your local SERVPRO of the Quad Cities.  Our experienced and trained technicians will work with you as our customer to ensure 100% satisfaction with your mitigation needs.
