Portage County Water Damage
When the weather is beautiful, whether it's a sunny and warm day in East Liverpool or a gorgeous winter wonderland in Salem, it's hard to imagine that flooding is still a risk in Portage County—especially for those not near Mogadore Reservoir, the Cuyahoga River, or any other lake, river, or low-lying area in the county. Unfortunately, according to a FEMA press release in 2012, without adequate precipitation this season, it's possible to experience drought-like conditions later so that, when it does rain or snow melts, flash flooding is a greater risk. When the ground is dry, a particularly intense storm can drop so much rain so quickly that the ground cannot absorb it. Statistics from the National Flood Insurance Program indicate that more than 20 percent of flood insurance claims come from areas mapped outside high-risk areas—those not near a lake or river or in a low-lying area. Flash flooding can happen anywhere.
Unfortunately, water damage is not limited to flooding from rainfall or severe weather. In fact, normal water damages caused by a leaking toilet, broken pipe, or sewer backup, for example, can cause serious damage and are much more common. Soaked carpet, saturated furniture, and water-logged books and important papers are only some of the ways to suffer loss from water damage. What about the damage to drywall, structural timber, and insulation?
