“Tis An Ill Wind That Blows No One Any Good…”

4/19/2021 (Permalink)

This is an old proverb that means generally when the wind blows; some good may come of it. The “Ill” wind referred to, means that no good will come to anyone from some winds. An example would be a hurricane which typically packs ill winds that cause destruction. Wind should be everyone’s concern. If you have ever witnessed a tornado or the aftermath; you know that strong wind can not only destroy but it can kill. Unfortunately, recent events have brought this to fruition.

Although we rarely see tornadoes here in Sussex County; we do have several Nor-Easters per year. Let’s also not forget that we can get an occasional hurricane as well. But tornadoes, Nor-Easters and hurricanes are not the only types of winds that cause damage. A few weeks ago we had severe thunderstorms in our area and I suffered some minor damage to the siding on my home. A large piece of fascia had torn loose and was dangling precariously over my garage. It needs to be stated that I suffer from a bad back and when I say bad – I mean that a jellyfish has a stronger spine. So of course; I took to Google and found no one that would assist me because most were tree specialists and a handyman would not waste the thirty minutes to drive to my home for the ten minutes of work. This situation made me think of how many other home owners had the same issues and while driving the local roads I saw other homes with minor damage. What did I do? I did what you should do – I called SERVPRO of Sussex County and the fascia was fixed promptly and properly.

So if you find yourself needing someone to respond to what you and others may feel is a small job – call SERVPRO of Sussex County. We will help you with even minor wind damage and of course our team has all the know-how and equipment to help with the large jobs as well. No job is too small if it is of concern to any of our local patrons. Call us at 302-856-9768 to find out how we can help!
