Storm Damage Restoration

Minimize Storm Damage with These Home Improvements

It’s easier to limit the potential for damage to dwellings with some home improvements than to suffer the aftermath. Even seemingly minor tropical storms can wreak havoc on homes. The home improvements don’t have to be expensive, require a major overhaul of systems, or be expensive to be effective. It’s much better to be over-prepared than under-prepared.

Impact Glass

Installing impact glass windows and door glass helps protect homes from any type of blowing debris. The glass will splinter, but won’t shatter and break from an impact. It works in much the same way as auto glass. Because it doesn’t break, rain and debris won’t enter the home. The windows are advantageous whether used in conjunction with shutters or not.

Garage Concerns

A well-placed limb can shatter glass, damage garage doors, and provide an entry point for floodwaters and unwanted wildlife. Garage doors can be reinforced with bracing on the inside of the door. Braces can also be added to strengthen wheel tracks. Hire a professional to perform the tasks or consider the installation of a garage door designed to withstand high winds.

Basements and Foundations

Concrete is a porous material that allows water to enter. Sealants can be applied to concrete foundations that protect it against liquids. There are also methods that can be used to modify crawlspaces and basements that enables water to enter and exit instead of crashing against the home which can result in knocking the home off its foundation.

Backflow Valves

One of the most dangerous situations can occur due to sewer backflows. Consider having sewer backflow valves installed. They temporarily block drain pipes, thereby preventing backflows into the house.

Fortifications

Every home has weaknesses that can be exploited when storms manifest. Search out weaknesses in areas ranging from the roof and gutter systems to gables and siding. Have them appropriately fortified before a storm strikes.

How a Restoration Company Helps Through the Disaster Process

There are many types of disasters that can affect families and business owners in Florida ranging from fires and floods to hurricanes. Most individuals simply call their insurance company to make a claim when a call to a restoration company could be more appropriate. Engaging the services of a restoration company can help individuals through the disaster process in multiple ways.

Temporary Mitigation

Any kind of disaster generates emotional stress and trauma that can affect an individual’s decision-making process. A restoration company responds quickly and will take immediate action to mitigate further damage. That can include securing windows, doors, the roof or other openings.

Security Measures

Believe it or not, there are intruders that will enter a structure after a disaster, even though the building is unsafe, thereby opening individuals up to a lawsuit if they’re injured. A restoration company understands the need to secure a building from entry to protect property owners and until various officials have performed any required examinations.

Works With Insurance

Restoration companies work directly with insurance companies to salvage a wide range of furnishings and remove items that are damaged beyond repair. It’s beneficial for clients and insurance companies prefer to restore rather than replace whenever possible.

Water Removal and Cleanup

Storms, flooding, sewer backups, and water from extinguishing flames are all ways in which furnishings and building interiors can sustain water damage. Specialized equipment is utilized to remove as much water as possible. The restoration company will perform clean up of the property, remove debris, and arrange for the appropriate method of waste removal.

Mold Remediation

Mold quickly grows and spreads in warm, damp conditions. A restoration company will utilize a lab to identify exactly what type of mold is present and establish the correct protocols for its removal.

Restoration

When attended to quickly, professional restoration services can evacuate a wide variety of furnishing and electronics and restore them to like-new condition. Moisture is removed, mold remediated, unpleasant odors eliminated, and furnishings completely cleaned and refreshed.

Rebuilding

Multiple types of rebuilding and restoration may be required, depending upon the nature of the disaster. A restoration company will ensure the integrity of the structure and replace walls, floors, ceilings and roofs that have been compromised.
