Hidden Damage in Montgomery Village Can Occur During Storms That Can Lead to Major Problems

Rain, wind, and hail can inflict severe damage on homes in Montgomery Village when storms strike. Often the impact is easily seen, but hidden damage could be lurking beneath the service. SERVPRO seeks out and restores homes hit with storm damage.

What hidden damage do you look for from flooding?

Flooding is one of the biggest problems caused by storms. In February 2020, five tornadoes touched down in Maryland, according to the National Weather Services. Tropical storms send torrential rains inward in many places in Maryland. If your home has weathered flood damage in Montgomery Village, you may wonder if the water intrusion truly damaged it. Here is what can happen:

  • Walls, floors, and ceiling cavities can become flooded.
