The weather of Macomb, Oakland, Wayne Counties, offers residents of Michigan with four lovely seasons, however, with Michigan’s recent weather pattern…there is little to like about the weather of the Wolverine State. If heavy snowfall and cold temperatures weren’t enough, strong wind gusts have been hammering Michigan, causing all sorts of property damage from power outages to downed trees and frozen pipes.
The combination of heavy snowfall, cold temperatures and strong wind gusts bring a recipe for disaster for residents of Michigan. Drastic changes and drops in the temperature could lead to frozen plumbing and burst pipes in the home, potentially causing a flooded basement and severe water damage (depending on the amount of time the water has remained stagnant in the home). Unfortunately, many of these freak occurrences are hard to properly tackle without the given experience and necessary tools. Experiencing a devastating event like a pipe burst or fallen tree, it’s recommended to seek the service of a professional disaster restoration or company that can effectively remove water and dry the basement, as well as provide construction and tree removal services.
While it’s nearly impossible to predict the chance that your home will be affected during an unexpected snowstorm or strong weather pattern, the most a homeowner can do is be prepared. What will you do if a storm hits and you lose electricity or phone services from a fallen tree, or your water or gas is shut off? That’s why it’s important to plan ahead and have a basic emergency kit that should include water, batteries, non-perishable foods, flashlight, and a generator, etc. But preparation should be as simple as just having the number of a disaster restoration company at hand, which could easily get you out of a jam and be the difference between saving thousands of dollars of property damage to experiencing a total loss.
