What Are Some Unexpected Storm Damages You Might Experience At Your Nashville Home?

5/15/2023 (Permalink)

As a Middle Tennessee resident, you are accustomed to storms and the damage they can cause. We get them all here in the Nashville area - from rain showers and thunderstorms to tornadoes! 

Much of the damage that can accompany a storm will be the issues we expect, such as loose or missing roofing shingles, erosion, mudslides, downed trees, and fallen power lines. We've all experienced one of these situations after a storm in the Hermitage/Donelson area - but what about the damages that may be a bit more unexpected? 

What Are Some Uncommon Types Of Damage Can A Storm Cause?

Here are some less common types of storm damage:

  • Mold can occur at any time when the conditions are humid, but it isn't one of the issues we normally look for after a storm. A mold infestation will take 24-48 hours to develop, so you must monitor areas of your home that have experienced significant moisture. 
  • When water inundates your building, you may end up with unpleasant odors. Soaked textiles and other materials can begin to rot, leaving you with smells you'll want to address immediately.
  • During a flood, sewer lines can break. Untreated sewage can be dangerous if not handled correctly, so you'll want to contact a professional restoration company like SERVPRO to manage this situation!
