Sometimes, life throws us lemons in the form of storms that can wreak havoc on our buildings. Unfortunately, this is something most homeowners will have to deal with at least once in their lifetime. No matter which state you live in, violent weather events will be a part of life. Most of the time, your home will come out of it virtually unscathed and will only require minor repairs. But sometimes, a storm can be so violent and devastating that you will need emergency storm damage repairs done immediately. Before it becomes necessary, it is important for homeowners to know what to expect so that if the time comes, you will know what to do.
What Activities To Expect
Whether it is a residential or commercial property, the first step is for your restoration company to inspect the damage caused by the storm. You should expect a thorough inspection of the interior and exterior of your building so that the extent of the damage can be assessed.
This includes everything from a roof inspection to checking the structural integrity of your building. Most of the time, your restoration company will work with an insurance adjuster to make it easier for you to file an insurance claim later down the line.
Once everything is checked and agreed upon, the work can now begin. Depending on the type of damage, you can expect your restoration company to bring in specialty tools and equipment to immediately start addressing the problem. Common storm damage procedures include drying and water extraction, dehumidification and moisture control, emergency power restoration and mold remediation.
A good restoration company will also be responsible for disinfecting hard surfaces and even shampooing salvageable carpeting and applying deodorant to combat any unpleasant smells.
