Each season has the potential to bring storm damage to your home. Whether the damage is from flooding, lightning, hurricanes, a nor’easter, or high winds, you’ll need a professional to restore the property. At Soil-Away, we are here to help. Our family-owned business has expertise in the area of home restoration. Here are three things we do to restore properties after a storm.
Assessment of Property
The first step in the storm damage restoration process is to inspect the property in order to assess damages. We inspect the house for standing water and water damage. Then we will check for wind damage by looking at the windows, doors, and siding. In addition, we assess the house for any fire damage caused by lightning strikes. The team will also analyze floodwater to determine whether it is contaminated. Floodwaters can contain various toxins that are dangerous to residents. Because of this, it is crtiical to understand the type of floodwater present. This helps us properly sanitize your home.
Restoration of Property
After the initial assessment, it is time to restore! If there is water in the house, we use equipment to remove the water and then dry the area. There is also a moisture-detecting device that will check for any hidden moisture that could potentially cause mold growth. We will also decontaminate and sanitize the house. This protects residents against any toxins that floodwaters brought in. Anything that is damaged beyond repair will be removed and replaced.
