Chicago storm and water damage restoration by ServiceMaster of Lincoln Park
It was only last February when severe blizzards swept across the center of the nation, leaving hundreds of motorists stranded, countless accidents, vehicles off the road, and hundreds of airline flights cancelled. Fox News reported over 150 people waiting out the storm at the Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, while others were detained by extreme winter conditions at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. From early to late February record snowfalls covered the Midwest and Chicago was no exception. The storm totals for the 28th ranged from ten to 17 inches.
Notes from the National Weather Service described the blizzard in the Chicago area and Illinois as “a little snow and a lot of high wind.”The combination of repeated snows, winds, very cold temperatures and ice can all be factors in disasters for homes and businesses.
Whether it be the extra weight of snow on roofs, the burden of heavy ice weakening trees and branches, or the wind itself toppling trees into structures, there seems to be no end to the combination of things that can cause storm damage in extreme weather. Ice and wind can also cause power outages that can contribute to pipes freezing and then bursting, resulting in a flooded basement, extensive water damage or even the need for sewage cleanup should a backup occur.
