High Desert Windstorm Damages Homes in Apple Valley?

6/18/2024 (Permalink)

Wind billows into the air during a sandstorm in the desert. We restore storm damage 24/7 in San Bernardino County.

In the Mojave Desert, windstorms carry vast quantities of sand particles, creating a phenomenon known as sandblasting. The abrasive force of airborne sand can erode and deteriorate building materials over time.

Structures, especially those with exposed surfaces like windows, walls, and roofs, are particularly vulnerable to this abrasive action. Sand particles propelled by strong winds can impact these surfaces with considerable force, leading to scratches, pitting, and even structural weakening.

In addition, windstorms in the Mojave Desert often carry fine dust and grit, which can infiltrate the tiniest crevices and openings in a structure. This infiltration can compromise seals, joints, and protective coatings, allowing dust and sand to penetrate deeper into the building's interior. Over time, this infiltration can accelerate the corrosion and degradation of metal components, such as fasteners and structural supports.

Also, the continuous barrage of wind-driven sand and dust can obscure visibility, creating hazardous conditions for transportation and navigation, and the accumulation of sand around structures can alter local hydrology, leading to issues such as erosion and sedimentation.
