4 FAQs About Storm Damage Restoration

2/25/2021 (Permalink)

Dealing with a severe storm or natural disaster can be challenging, especially when you aren’t prepared for the magnitude of the aftermath. That’s especially true when inclement weather causes damage to your property. As storm damage restoration professionals, SERVPRO® of Cape May & Cumberland Counties answers frequently asked questions about handling this serious problem:

What Kind of Damage Is Possible?

There’s no way to predict the severity of a storm’s impact on your property. Common effects include flooding and roof damage. Hail or heavy wind may knock out windows or cause damage to doors. Extensive water damage might develop inside if your property is left unattended.

What Should I Do After the Storm?

Act fast if storm damage occurs. First, call us 609-624-0202. We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week, all year long! We are licensed contractors that can provide you with emergency restoration services. You’ll also need to prevent further damage to your property by securing any doors and windows that were destroyed. Our trained construction technicians will put a tarp on a broken roof to ensure that the property is safe. You’ll also need to contact your insurance provider to start the claims process. Take pictures of the area to aide your claim.

What If I Don’t See Visible Damage?

Not all types of damage are visible. If a storm ravaged your area and caused significant structural concerns for other properties, it’s possible that your property also suffered to some degree. As a qualified storm damage restoration team we can properly inspect and assess the area to determine the severity of the problem.

What Does the Restoration Process Involve?

During storm damage restoration, SERVPRO will use specific equipment to quickly remove excess moisture and dry the affected areas. If necessary, we’ll get rid of odors and sanitize your space. We will also remove damaged drywall, fix flooring, clean carpeting, and perform any needed fixes to ensure that all signs of water are completely gone. After the damage is repaired, our special “re-construction” crew can go in and make everything look like it was never damaged in the first place!

Storms can be debilitating to personal property, but with the help of the team at SERVPRO of Cape May & Cumberland Counties, you can handle the most challenging types of damage. If you need emergency restoration services, call 609-624-0202, and we’ll work to make it, "Like it never even happened."®
