Most Common Types of Storm Damages in Southern California Storm rolls in behind home

Storm damage is a common threat that looms over Southern California. Without warning, a severe thunderstorm or heavy rainfall can strike and cause extensive damage to commercial and residential properties in our communities. 


While we may not see many days of consistent rainfall, we certainly see downpours that strike without warning. Thanks to low-lying areas in and around Fontana, flooding is among the most common disasters for Fontana residents. When heavy rainfall hits, properties flood, and homeowners and business owners scramble to resolve the problem as quickly as possible to avoid the dangers that come with property floods.


When storms strike Fontana, so do high winds. These high winds are among the most powerful forces of nature and can take down trees, blow around outdoor furniture, break windows and damage the exterior of your property and create a dangerous environment until properly repaired.


While lightning is a rare cause of storm damage, it is a culprit! Lightning can strike trees surrounding your property, or even your property sparking fires or causing trees to fall. While these require different action plans for resolution, both require professional assistance for remediation and repairs.


Living in our near hills and mountains makes your property much more susceptible to mudslides following heavy rainfall. When this heavy rainfall hits and moistens the soil, it becomes loose. This loose soil then begins to glide downhill uprooting trees and taking surface-level rocks with it to create a violent and damaging natural disaster.

When your home or business is hit with storm damage of any kind, you need to take action immediately. Our professionals at SERVPRO of Fontana have the experience and equipment necessary to address storm damages at your property.
