Restoration experts have seen a distinct increase in the need for remediation and restoration services due to storm damage. Whether individuals believe in climate change or not, there’s no denying that storms are becoming more frequent and increasing in severity. Storm patterns are changing and the resulting damage is also escalating.
More Frequent and Stronger Storms
The oceans are warming, fueling more powerful storms and increased rainfall. Storm surges are higher as ocean levels rise and property damage from hurricanes alone has increased by 70 to 90 percent every decade since the 1980s. People in South Florida are particularly vulnerable and are bearing the brunt of those storms and the damage they generate, which significantly increases the need for restoration services.
Adding to the problem is Florida’s position as having the lowest elevation above sea level in the nation. Oceanfront living is just one of the major attractions for residents and construction continues in those areas, even though they’re prone to damage from flooding and winds. Damage and devastation aren’t limited to the immediate coastal area. The effects of storm damage are being felt up to 12 miles inland from the actual storm fronts.
For those in South Florida, that means a combination of problems encompassing intense flooding, mold growth, loss of possessions, and structural damage to homes and businesses due to water, wind, lightning, and even tornadoes. The problems are compounded by electrical power outages. Individuals can no longer count on their insurance company for coverage, though FEMA flood insurance is still available. Several insurance companies have terminated coverage for clients.
Insurance companies like to work with restoration companies as it typically saves them money on coverage costs. It’s also beneficial for individuals since a restoration company is able to salvage a wide range of items and restore them to their pre-damage condition. A restoration company provides an on-site claim expert and communicates directly with a person’s insurance company. It relieves stress for families, can save them a significant amount of money, and will take care of all the restoration details.
