What you need to know about Storm Damage
Living in Eastern NC, storms are a a way of life. Flood damage, wind damage and wind driven rain can permanently damage your home if not restored properly.
Wind Damage- When a storm hits your home and/or commercial building most likely wind will be involved. Winds can cause roof damage, fallen trees, wind-driven and broken windows. A professional should be in a place to offer solutions to any wind damages sustained to your home.
Ground Water- During a storm the ground looses its ability to drain all the water. When this happens dirt and soil become soft and start to float along with the water. When storm water sits, it starts to carry debris and become a health concern due to the diseases it can carry. For faster drainage, call a SERVPRO. Mold starts forming in 48-72 hours, so time is of the essence to drain water, remove wet materials and dry out the building to reduce damage and lower costs of repair.
Hail Damage- Hail can cause severe damage to roofs, siding, stucco, windows, and doors. Water can then penetrate your home which allows moisture and mold to cause further damage.
