Don't Be Shaken by a Quake--Call SERVPRO®

Earthquakes can cause untold damage to your home in more ways than you might initially realize. While you might first look for broken contents and ruined belongings, the full scope of its effects might only be apparent after thoroughly inspecting the property. Violent natural disasters like earthquakes impact homes and businesses in several ways, including:

  • Water Leaks – Pipes can break loose, rupture, or be pulled apart in weak spots to create a rapidly worsening water damage event. 
  • Damaged Appliances – Appliances and water heaters can be heavily damaged by the shaking and movement of an earthquake, disconnecting hoses, or separating them from their water sources. 
  • Electrical Fires – Water and moisture damage can create electrical shorts that cause fires. 
  • Biohazard Threats – Backups from the sewer and other drainage lines can create contaminated water cleanup for affected houses. 
  • Structural Damages – The greatest initial threat in homes after an earthquake is structural weakness and compromise requiring reinforcement, board-up, and repairs.
