The Process of Storm Damage Mitigation

7/13/2023 (Permalink)

Storms can unleash powerful forces of nature, leaving behind a trail of destruction and devastation. When a property is impacted by a storm, quick and effective mitigation is essential to protect the structure and put it on the path to restoration. Safety is the utmost priority when dealing with storm damage. Before any restoration work can begin, professional technicians will conduct a thorough safety assessment. This involves identifying and addressing immediate hazards, such as structural instability, standing water, and/or debris. Only when the property is deemed safe can the mitigation and restoration process begin.

Once our team has determined that the property is safe for them to enter the building, the water extraction and debris cleanup can begin. A common consequence of storms is water intrusion. Whether through roof leaks flooding, or broken windows, water can infiltrate a property, causing significant damage. Water extraction will be conducted if there is standing water present. Through the use of industrial-grade pumps, specialized vacuums, and dehumidifiers the work can be done quickly and effectively. A skilled team of technicians goes a long way when given the tools to get the work done. We will set up air movers to dry the affected areas and take moisture readings until the area is determined as dry. Taking these steps will prevent secondary damage by decreasing the chance of mold growth occurring.

Storms can leave behind a trail of debris, including fallen trees, broken branches, damaged contents, and pieces of the structure. Debris removal and cleanup are crucial for restoring access to the property and helping to create a safe working environment. Professional crews equipped with the necessary tools and equipment to handle the task, ensuring proper disposal of the debris and unsalvageable contents.

Moisture can lead to many issues on a property that has been exposed to a storm that has caused water damage or even having your interior exposed to heavy amounts of moisture in the air. Our trained specialists can identify and remove any visible mold, employing proper containment measures and using the proper equipment to ensure a thorough remediation process.

Storm damage mitigation is a comprehensive multi-step endeavor. By engaging professional storm damage companies such as SERVPRO, property owners can navigate the challenges with expertise and efficiency. From safety assessments to debris removal, water extraction, mold remediation, and then the reconstruction process. Each step is crucial in restoring your property to its former condition. With dedication, knowledge, and skilled craftsmanship, the restoration process can bring new life into a damaged property, allowing owners to rebuild and move forward with confidence.
