Storm Damage Restoration
Some of the most common reasons in Florida to contact a Property or Storm Damage Restoration Company
Thunderstorm and Lightning damage:
Tampa Bay is the lightning capital in the US, lightning storms have the potential to cause significant structural damage and fires. It is possible to observe damage to electrical wiring, appliances, cable or telephone lines even if your lightning system successfully directs the energy to the ground. Make sure to stay inside until the storm passes since your home will protect you unless there are any symptoms of a fire.
Even if you are not struck by lightning during a thunderstorm, there are risks involved. Hail, strong gusts, and severe flash flooding are all possible.
Tidal surges and flood damage brought on by storms:
Flooding puts both your home and your safety in grave danger. Floods claim more lives each year than lightning, hurricanes, and tornadoes combined. Flooding can result in dangerous contamination and damage to drywall, support beams, and foundations in buildings. Within the first 24 hours of a flood, you are at danger for mold, therefore it’s critical to halt the water flow and launch remediation right once.
There are various risks associated with various flood types. When significant amounts of rain fall fast or steadily, river floods and flash floods are frequent and have the potential to utterly destroy structures. Even more hazardous coastal floods and storm surges typically result in evacuation alerts. It is advisable to pay attention to weather reports and make advance plans because these can completely devastate homes.
The majority of severe storm-related damage in Florida occurs between July and October, when thunder storms and the hurricane season is at its peak. This is when your home is most vulnerable to water damage. Water intrusion will eventually reach a building’s foundation. It will endanger the home’s structural stability, create a fire hazard, and cause mold. Water damage needs to be taken care of right away. To deal with roof leak mold, choose a reputable water damage restoration and mold remediation business.
Even when a storm has little or no rain or hail, your home can still sustain wind damage. Strong winds can create stress points on a roof and soffits and weaken or compromise it allowing water to intrude. After a strong storm it’s a good idea to look for missing and damaged shingles on your roof, and other wind damage around your property. If you notice this type of damage, it is important to contact a wind damage restoration company or a roofing company to address the problem.
