Here are some things you should NOT do after experiencing Storm Damage:
Entering a damaged structure or area can be dangerous and may cause further damage. Wait until a professional has assessed the situation and deemed it safe to enter.
If you suspect electrical damage, do not attempt to fix it yourself. Call a licensed electrician to handle any electrical repairs.
If there is water damage in your home, avoid turning on any electrical appliances until a professional has checked them for damage.
Removing fallen trees or debris can be dangerous and may cause further damage. Wait until a professional has assessed the situation and has deemed it safe to remove.
Experiencing a storm in your home can be traumatic, but knowing what steps to take afterward can help you start the recovery process.
Here are some tips and a checklist from Umstead Enterprises Inc. on what to do after a storm:
Storm Damage Restoration Process
Assessment and Inspection:
We will start by assessing the extent of the storm damage and inspecting the affected areas to determine the best course of action.
We prioritize safety and will take necessary precautions to ensure the property is safe for our team and any occupants.
If there is any standing water, we’ll use specialized equipment to extract and dry out wet surfaces, preventing further damage and mold growth.
Dehumidification and Drying:
We’ll set up dehumidifiers and fans to thoroughly dry out the affected areas, which is critical in preventing further damage and ensuring the area is completely dry.
Cleaning and Sanitization:
Once the area is dry, we’ll thoroughly clean and sanitize all affected surfaces to prevent mold growth and ensure a healthy living environment.
Prevent Further Damage:
We take additional steps to prevent further damage, such as boarding windows or covering holes in the roof.
Remove Hazardous Debris:
We remove large fallen trees or other hazardous debris and clear debris from your property.
Restoration and Reconstruction:
We’ll restore and reconstruct any damaged areas to their original state if necessary. Our team of skilled professionals will ensure that the restoration work is of the highest quality and meets your satisfaction.
