Floods are the most expensive cause of water damage claims. Boise is susceptible to rain, ice and snow. Precipitation and wind can destroy your home but it’s impossible to foresee which weather conditions will cause damage. The important thing to do is to be sure to get help immediately after water enters your home. Call a full service water damage clean up team like Red Truck Disaster Response to preempt mold growth, then restore your home.
- Thunderstorm Risks – Thunderstorms happen more often during the afternoon and evening hours in the spring and summer months, but they can occur year-round and at all hours. Under the right conditions, rainfall from thunderstorms can cause hail or flash flooding. Strong (up to more than 120 mph) straight-line winds associated with thunderstorms knock down trees, power lines and mobile homes. Tornadoes (with winds up to about 300 mph) can destroy all but the best-built man-made structures.
- Damaging Hail – Storms in Idaho can include damaging hail that breaks windows, damages roofs, dents siding, and crushes outdoor structures. Hail can strike with damaging force. Then water can enter the breach and cause even more destruction.
- Winds From Storms – Property made of lightweight materials is at risk from strong winds. Pay particular attention to the following areas:
-Fences are vulnerable due to lightweight construction and the large surface area exposed to the wind.
-Falling debris from roofs, chimneys or unsecured gable walls can cause consequential damage to property below e.g. parked cars.
-Unsecured or unbraced masonry walls, especially on temporary construction sites, can be blown over before permanent bracing has been fixed.
