Flood Damage from a Toppled Tree that Ripped Your Roof in Gilroy

Flood Damage Often Follows Stormy, Windy Weather

Tall trees can increase property values but, at the same time, increase the likelihood that such landscaping can turn detrimental. If only one tree lands on your roof, this can lead to localized flood damage to your Gilroy home. High winds from storms and earthquakes can knock over dead trees, especially those with loosened roots. Living trees can also get pushed over when faced with too much force, especially if they are extremely tall or top-heavy.

Whenever flood damage happens in Gilroy, it does not matter if your neighbors’ properties remain dry or flood. You must act fast to protect and preserve your family home. We want to assure you that no job is ever too large or complicated for SERVPRO and our specialized teams are on standby to help with each detail.

Trees that fall over during a storm or other natural event can also bring down power lines. As soon as the electrical company gives us the go-ahead, we can get the problem tree removed. We temporarily close any openings with a tarp to keep additional rain from getting inside your home.

 As soon as possible, we will continue restoring your home to keep any flood damage to a minimum. This work might include:

  • Extraction units to suction out the water and desiccant machinery to dry out the air,
  • Cleaning of any carpeting or rugs in the area that became flooded with clean rainwater, 
  • Repairs of electrical wiring, including outlet and switch boxes, and
  • Rebuilding the damaged area of the roof.

Some of the walls in your dwelling might have become soaked from invasive rainfall, but correctly placed air movers can solve this problem quickly. Even more damage might exist if your family was away from home when this event happened.

However dire the situation seems, SERVPRO of Morgan Hill / Gilroy is ready to take your call regarding flood damage, answer questions, and make everything “Like it never even happened.” (408) 500-0657.
