Storm Damage

Storm Damage

Storms of all types have the ability to cause damages to your home or business. Tens of thousands of homes are damaged each year by storms. From bad thunder storms with high winds and rains to hurricanes and tornadoes, your property is at risk of damages. Regardless of the situation or type of storm, it is vital for home and business owners to contact clean up and repair professionals as quickly as possible to address storm damages rather than attempting to clean it up on their own.

Potential Types of Damages

As a home or business owner, you should get in the habit of assessing your property for damages after a storm passes.

Heavy rains and flooding can create water damages very quickly, soaking carpet, flooring and walls and leaving surfaces susceptible to the risk of mold and mildew growth if not dried properly.

Lightning during a storm could cause tree branches to fall and damage your roof, windows and siding, or even cause a fire in your home. Heavy winds, hail, sleet, ice and snow could also potentially cause damage to your building’s external structure.

After a storm comes through your area, take inventory of your home and your possessions and make sure to make note of any damage. Rain and flood water can saturate drywall, flooring, carpets and other surfaces and cause damage very quickly. If the water is not fully moved and the area completely dried, your home and possessions could be at significant risk for mold and mildew damage.

Side Menu

ServiceMaster is one of the best mots honest businesses in town. After my Dad experienced a groundwater flood in the bottom level of his house from the above-average rainfall in 2018, we gave Chad and his team a call. They were booked to the gills with clients who were experiencing similar issues, but they made time to come out and look, help us confirm the issue, and get us set up with dehumidifiers and air movers to dry things up. They were honest about their prices and flexible about payment, super responsive and just good down-to-earth WNC kind of people. Thanks so much ServiceMaster team!
