This Is Often as Troublesome as Exterior Problems for Kansas City Homeowners

The most noticeable signs of storm damage are often observed on the roofs and around the exteriors of Kansas City homes, but this can be quite deceiving. Often, seemingly minor outside issues, like missing roof tiles, leaf-clogged gutters, or impacted shingles hide slow leaks that can eventually cause significant problems for you and your family.

As your neighborhood SERVPRO knows, storm and wind damage in Kansas City can be fairly severe. We also understand that small, weather-related leaks can quickly morph into something more costly to repair. The most common and insidious interior issues result from:

  • Water seeping into weather-beaten roofs and leaking down between walls from blocked gutters
  • Rain slowly dripping from deteriorated window seals and cracked panes
  • Storm-fed, rising groundwater permeating damaged foundations and flooding basements
  • Primary water damage, occurring over time, where the water comes in contact with materials, rusting metal surfaces, delaminating backs of carpets, and warping hardwood floors
  • Secondary water damage that impacts hygroscopic, or water vapor absorbing/susceptible, materials eventually causing mold growth on affected surfaces, deteriorating ceiling tiles, and making drywall crumble 

With all that said, our emergency water damage services division routinely performs professional inspections of storm-damaged properties and deals with ceiling leaks, burst pipes, basement flooding, and other issues that frequently arise from inclement weather conditions. Over time, we have also worked to resolve water vapor's often silent, harmful effects. 

As you can see, your helpful neighbors at SERVPRO of Kansas City Midtown know what it takes to identify and clean up severe wind and storm damage. So, if you ever require our assistance, don’t hesitate to call us at (816) 895-8890 for fast and dependable service.
