Summer Thunderheads in Riverside

How Can Thunderheads Affect You, And How SERVPRO Can Help

 Definition of thunderhead:

A rounded mass of cumulus or cumulonimbus cloud often appearing before a thunderstorm.

Just about 2 weeks ago, Riverside got hit with a random thunderhead that no one expected.  It was a sunny warm day in the high 80's temperature. When warm weather comes to Riverside, it's hard to fit all needed maintenance during busy fun-filled days.

Living in the city of Riverside can seem like a relatively quiet way to live your life until flood damage suddenly impacts your home. It is essential to realize that not all floods are catastrophic. When it comes to flood damage, many homes are affected by heavy rain and thunderstorms, or like we recently experienced the thunderhead. 

Imagine a scenario where a freak storm causes flood damage in your Riverside basement while at work. No rain was forecasted, so you left your basement window ajar to help air out some old boxes. When you saw cars breaking, streets flooded with ankle-deep water, you knew your home was in trouble. 

What Can I Do in This Situation Knowing Water Might Be Pouring into My House? 

Here at SERVPRO, we believe it's better to be safe than sorry. If you know floodwater has an access point to your home, get help. You can: 

  • Call us from your car on your way home
  • Rely on an existing SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile Plan
  • If you can do neither of the above, you can call our office as soon as you arrive at home 

The SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile Plan is a great way to help you prepare for an accident you cannot see coming. By making a plan before the flood happens, you can ensure our technicians have quick access to your home.
