Fortunately, here in Michigan, we don't experience the major storms or catastrophes like other states. However, excessive rainfall in short periods of time can cause major damage if drainage systems are not working properly. During heavy rain/storms there are typically a few different ways water may enter your home.
- Foundation- Rod hole leaks or cracks in the foundation can allow water to seep through and enter your home.
- Windows/doors- making sure they are sealed properly
- Landscape- having a proper grade to direct water away from the house, rather than toward it
- Sump pump- making sure you sump is operable.
In the event that you have water damage in your home due to a storm event give SERVPRO of Novi/Commerce South and Bloomfield a call at 248-344-0044
