Avalanche and Snow Damage Restoration
The biggest worry about avalanches is they can happen at a moment’s notice and without any warning, and once they’ve run their course, they can leave home and property owners with tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages. They also seem to be happening at alarming rates this year, with an unprecedented 11 human-triggered avalanche events occurring in just a three-day window just in Utah.
At Utah Flood Cleanup, we understand that ‘flooding’ isn’t done just by water in its liquid form. Snow and ice can do just as much damage, sometimes more so, and that’s why we’ve worked hard to expand our services to offer area residents the best in Avalanche Restoration Services.

Avalanche and Snow Damage Restoration
In some cases, an avalanche can completely obliterate a cabin or detached structure as a massive slab of ice can slam into a building at speeds upwards of 80 miles per hour. In these situations,avalanche commercial cleaning is mostly about clearing away all of the wreckage, making it possible for property owners to recoup what they can and have a clean slate to build anew.
However, not all avalanches are so destructive. Buildings that are located further down a slope and are hit as avalanches slow or dissipate are more likely to experience a mix of external damage, exterior snow build-up, and interior snow piling up where the avalanche broke through doors or windows. Here, fast avalanche cleaning & restoration can go a long way in significantly reducing long-term damages for a couple of key reasons.
First, if an avalanche or large winter snowstorm breaks through your home, then it is vital not to allow snow and ice to remain inside the home as snow allowed to remain inside will damage the structure. Snow allowed to melt into water will lead to all of the regular flooding issues our Utah restoration team deals with, including structural damage, mold growth, and electrical issues. Even if the snow doesn’t melt, the sheer weight of hard-packed snow can be an issue on the flooring.
But the interior isn’t the only worry with avalanches and snowstorms. Fast and professional residential snow removal and snow damage cleaning services are also vital to prevent exterior damages. Ice and snow that builds up around exterior piping can cause water pipes and gas lines to freeze and burst, the first potentially leading to a flood and the latter potentially leading to a fire. Snow and ice left on a roof to sit and accumulate can quickly exceed that roof’s maximum weight capacity and cause permanent roofing damages. When left atop pavement and mason, the ice gets into cracks and causes fractures and buckling.
Getting Your Snow and Ice Removed
Simply put, there is no place in or near your home for excessive snow and ice to safely be. Whenever there is a major snowstorm or any avalanche damage, it’s important to protect your property and your belongings by having that snow and ice removed as quickly and safely as possible.
