The stormy season is upon us and the Butte County and surrounding areas are not immune to the potential damages that may come with the influx of water, hail, and high winds. During this time, it is essential to have the needed knowledge as a home or business owner to keep your home and business safe. Storm damage isn’t always something that comes to mind when we see the first chance of rain, but sometimes it is necessary. Different types of weather can create different types of damage, both based upon severity and amount. When you need help cleaning up the mess that Mother Nature has left on your doorstep, a professional full-service restoration company like SERVPRO of Chico/Lake Almanor can help. So, what type of weather scenarios should you be on the lookout for?


One of the most destructive forms of storm damage in terms of your home’s structural integrity is flooding. Floods have the potential to occur when heavy rainfall, such as that associated with hurricanes, cause water levels to rise and surge into all territory. Even a minor flood can send unknown contaminated water straight through your home. This water is dirty, full of debris, and extremely harmful to a home’s structure and your belongings. Call a professional to get the flood water navigated properly from your home to attempt to avoid these damages.


There have been horror stories on the different sizes of hail and the insurmountable damage that it has caused in the past. Hail can cause damage to yourself, your car, your home, and any exterior possessions. During particularly nasty storms, you might find yourself having, broken windows, water damage, destroyed siding, and downed trees. This type of storm is a fairly common one, so it is extremely important to be aware of the damage to expect and to keep SERVPRO’s number close at hand.

High Winds

A gentle breeze can be such a relief on the hot days during summer, but it is certainly not fun when combined with stormy weather and has the potential to increase speed to dangerous rates. Wind does the bulk of damage outside of your home such as busting windows, destroying framing and shutters, and causing cracks and holes. Here in the Butte County and Plumas County regions there is another danger when it comes to incredibly high winds, trees. Trees have the potential of causing massive damage to your home during a storm.
