Spring weather can be quite unpredictable. Severe weather during this time of the year can result in damage to your property from powerful winds or flooding from heavy rain. When you’ve experienced storm damage of any kind, it’s important to know the proper steps to take.
At Ascension General Contractors, we’ve put together some of the key things we think you should know about disaster restoration after storm damage to help you be prepared.
What to Know About Disaster Restoration After Storm Damage
The first step following any damage to your property is to ensure that you take proper safety precautions. Once a storm has hit, there can be all kinds of hazards you will have to watch for. This could be things such as collapsed roofing materials, window damage, standing water, and more. A professional disaster restoration company will help you do the basic things right away to ensure the property is secure and safe to prevent further damage from occurring.
Working with Your Insurance Company
Working with insurance companies following storm damage can be a difficult process. It’s essential to take the proper steps to document damage and provide your insurance company with everything they need to push your claim through. One advantage to hiring a professional company to do disaster restoration is the fact that they have experience working with insurance companies and these types of situations are not new to them, which means they will be able to perform their job efficiently and effectively.
After a storm, water damage is a big concern. Flooding due to heavy rainfall, plumbing issues, and more can all be cause for worry of further damage to your property. For flooding issues and concerns, it is best to hire a professional company with the proper tools, qualified technicians, and knowledge to take care of the necessary restoration. Professionals have a plan in place to remove standing water and dry the area to keep mold and mildew from growing by controlling the moisture. Then they will be able to focus on restoring things such as drywall, hardwood floors, paint, and carpet that have been affected by water damage.
