Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) December 02, 2013
Restoration Local, one of the leading providers of water damage repair and restoration in the United States, is advising property owners to prepare their houses in advance of the coming winter season. Winter officially begins on Sunday, Dec 21, 2013, and many meteorologists expect it to be a busy one.
Property owners are encouraged to adequately prepare their homes and businesses against problems that may be caused by snow, ice, or freezing rain. Severe blasts of Arctic air are expected to cross the northern Plains, Midwest, and Great Lakes from December through the end of January or early February. Most meteorologists are expecting some considerable snow events during the same time period.
Ice is predicted to be a major problem across parts of the southeast, affecting large areas of both Mississippi and Alabama. Ice may also be the predominant problem across the Carolinas and Georgia.
The Western portion of the US may experience the widest swings in weather conditions during the coming winter season, with above normal warmth across much of the area during December and January, giving way to cold fronts affecting much of the state of California.
Any case of above average rainfall, excess snow, or melting ice, may result in flooding of homes or businesses, leaving behind considerable water damage. Water damage from any source can cause serious problems, and if left untreated, will pave the way for long term issues that can cause additional damage and increase the cost of repairs. Homeowners are advised to act quickly to secure professional assistance in the event of any damage related to winter weather.
Restoration Local is one of the leading providers of water damage restoration services in the US, with providers in 30 states, 24/7 availability, and same day emergency service. They are certified by the Clean Trust (IICRC) and Restoration Industry Association (RIA) and a member in good standing with the Better Business Bureau.
