So I can’t be the only one who feels like a soggy mess! It seems like rain has been the only thing constant so far in 2019. As of March 1st 2019 the SERVPRO® of Charles County and SERVPRO® of Oxon Hill territory has accumulated over 10 inches of rain and that does not include SNOW! YIKES!
In 2018 we accumulated approximately 60-70 inches of rain and in some spots over 80 inches of rain. Rain can be a great thing for our ecosystem but can be very damaging to our homes and businesses. It is so important to understand and pay attention to the Weather warnings in our area.
Failed sump pumps, burst pipes and ground water intrusion are some of the common things in our area when we have storm conditions. These things should be understood and watched for by everyone.
SERVPRO® of Charles County and SERVPRO® of Oxon Hill have seen businesses lose revenue because of water damages and 50% of small business that have to close due to damage NEVER reopen! That is a scary but true statistic. We have also seen people’s homes and belongings be destroyed due to water damages. One Property completely shifted from the foundation due to a water damage that was not caught in time.
Water is a tricky, dangerous thing and should be left for the professionals. If you have experienced a water damage and you need a professional, give us a call today! 301.753.8313!
