Spring Storm Damage

3/15/2023 (Permalink)

Storm season is among us. What do they say? ‘April showers bring May flowers?’ Well, April showers also bring flooding and water damage. It’s important to get educated and prepared before all of the rain comes.

Storm and flood damage require specialized restoration techniques and equipment. When a storm hits your Manhattan home, you need the company with storm damage experience and expertise. SERVPRO of Lower Manhattan can respond immediately to storm and flooding conditions.

Immediate Storm Damage Repair is a Priority

Quick responses to storm damage can help reduce the severity of the damage and prevent more from happening. For example, if you don’t respond to water damage quickly, you’ll end up with mold.

No one wants mold to develop in their home or building. A mold infestation hinders at the integrity of any structure, which can make it unsafe, risky, and expensive. If you suspect mold after water damage, SERVPRO can help you with mold remediation services.

Many people think that they can wait on storm damage repairs, but that’s a major mistake. The longer you wait, the more damage will occur. The damage repairs may seem costly at first, but it’s significantly less expensive if you jump on the repairs ASAP. If a storm creates a leak in your roof and you wait for it to be repaired, you may end up with an even bigger leak or the need of an entire new roof.

Minimize Storm Damage Ahead of Time

How do you minimize storm damage ahead of time? Simple.

  • Make sure you’re getting annual inspections on your home to ensure that the structure and roof is in good shape and can take on a storm.
  • If you’re in a flood zone or have experienced floods before, be sure to get flood insurance.
  • When you know a heavy storm is coming, prepare your yard. Grills, patio furniture, trees, etc. can become missiles if the winds pick up.
  • Support your garage door by holding it down and on an angle, place several sturdy boards on the door jams.
  • You can attempt to keep flooding/blowing water out of your home by using sandbags in front of your exterior doors.

If April brings you more rain than you hoped for and you’ve fallen victim to a flood or any other storm damage, give SERVPRO of Lower Manhattan a call. Our experts are local and ready to jump on any disaster to help.
