Your home is your shelter, and when a storm strikes, you expect to stay warm, safe, and dry. Unfortunately, storms can cause significant damage to your home and property, making restoration necessary. We provided a list to assist you in restoring property damage after a storm:
- Ensure your safety: Safety is always priority number one. Be aware of all potential dangers. If in doubt, stay out!
- Assess the storm damage: In most cases, storm damage will be obvious as water pours through your leaking roof or is driven by high winds through broken windows. In other cases, such as after a hail storm, the damage may be less obvious. For example, your roof may have imperceptible ‘dings’ in the asphalt shingles after a hail storm. These dings will slowly deteriorate, eventually causing roof damage or water leaks. You may want to have your roof inspected to ensure its integrity.
- Mitigate the storm damage: Next, it’s important to secure your home from further damage. This could mean boarding up a broken window or putting a tarp over a damaged section of the roof to keep more water from pouring in. Similarly, if your home has been flooded by a storm, not only can we extract the water and begin the dry-out process, we can help mitigate further water or mold damage with our fast response and structural drying techniques.
- Call your insurance company and us: Significant storm damage is typically covered by your home owner’s insurance policy, making it important to notify your insurance company of a loss right away. The sooner you call us, the sooner we can secure your home from further losses.
