Our homes experience the threat of damage every day. The potential for volatile weather, fires and even unsuspected structural aging can lead to significant damage that needs to be addressed quickly.

While it can be scary to think about what could happen on any given day, knowing what to expect and how to react when something does happen can minimize your situation.

SERVPRO of Pewaukee & Sussex is always here to help you recover from disaster, so call us as soon as you discover damage. We explain more about the different damage situations that our community could suffer below.

The Biggest Threats to the Pewaukee Area

We are lucky to experience all four seasons throughout the year, but that also means we are vulnerable to the different threats that come with each season. Storms and tornadoes can occur in the summer, heavy rain can make a big impact in the fall, blizzards and heavy snow can collapse roofs and cause other troubles in winter, and spring flooding can leave our basements soaked. In addition to weather events, regular home accidents like leaky pipes or house fires are also always a possibility.

Water damage can occur from storms or flooding, but it can also happen when appliances leak or if a seal around a water line gets worn down. Fire can also be caused by natural sources like lightning strikes, but house fires are much more likely to occur due to human error or negligence.

The Threat of Lingering Damage

Each home damage situation can be frustrating to deal with, but unfortunately, your problem may only be just getting started. Lingering damage can lead to all kinds of issues. For example, a flooded basement will result in extensive water damage, but any sort of residual moisture will cause mold to grow that can affect your foundation or the structural integrity of your home.

The same is true for house fires. A single fire can lead to extensive damage that leaves your walls, floors and possessions burned, but lingering soot and smoke can make it to parts of your home that never were touched by the flames. On top of that, water damage is also a common issue with house fires due to the water or chemical agents used to extinguish the flames.

No matter what happens in your home, recovery is crucial. Our team is able to help you overcome damage faster, and we will work hard for you from start to finish.

If your home suffers a water disaster, our water damage restoration process will be thorough and efficient. We will remove the excess water, clean and sanitize your space, and tackle repairs quickly. We will also ensure any lingering odors are removed as well.

We will do the same for house fires. We will repair the burned areas of your home while tackling soot and smoke removal. Once your space is clean, we will address any water damage issues and start your reconstruction process. We can handle every aspect of your construction even if it involves tearing down a part of your house and rebuilding it.

We are a full-service restoration company, so you can relax and rest easy knowing that you only have to work with us in order to overcome your damage. There will be no need to coordinate repairs with multiple different contractors because we can handle it all for you in no time at all.

Does your home need restoration and you don’t want to make more than one call? Contact us to get everything handled by one team.
