Storm Damage Storms Rolled Through After demo cleanup

After a cluster of storms rolled through Riley on a Saturday there were many homes and businesses that were affected with damage. A lot of that damage was roofs causing water to be able to intrude the home.

In this case there was so much rain that water was able to penetrate into the house through small foundation cracks. These homeowners were not aware of their storm damage because they were gone on vacation. It took seven days before anyone knew there was damage inside the home.

Our crews were on site and ready to get to work. 

1. Stabilize the area

2. Assess the damage

3. Extract the water

4. Remove wet material

5. Set drying Equipment

Once the structure is dry our crews will work with you and your insurance company to determine the next step.

Wading Through the Flood: Water Damage and Restoration Expectations

7/25/2018 (Permalink)

The damage is done. Whether a burst pipe or torrential rains, a flooded home is a devastating thing to behold. The amount of tear out and restoration ahead may be too daunting to imagine. However, there are three basic steps that can help to guide you through this intimidating process.


Step 1: Remove Excess Water.


While getting rid of extra water may seem like an obvious step, many homeowners fall into the trap of believing the water will recede on its own; however, basement floods and many other types of flooding need decisive action to minimize the amount of water damage. To mitigate extensive flood damage, it is imperative to remove water as quickly as possible, which can be done with the use of electric pumps.


Step 2: Tear Out Wet Materials.


Mold can develop in as little as 24 to 48 hours; therefore, it is essential to remove all wet materials from the home. This especially includes drywall and insulation. Insulation can often be overlooked because it is hidden behind your walls, but it is the most likely culprit for mold growth after a flood.


Step 3: Dry the Remaining Structure.


Once the water is gone and the damaged and dampened materials removed, it is time to start drying out your home. More often than not, drying a flood-damaged home will require the use of dehumidifiers and air movers to circulate the air through the home and ensure that there is no significant sign of moisture in the remaining structure.


Step 4: Restore the Home.


Then, after the days and possibly weeks of tear out and drying, it will finally be time to make your house a home again. For that, you can do a quick internet search to find a storm restoration specialist in the Terre Haute, IN, area. These companies are wonderful support for both your mitigation and restoration needs.

Floods are devastating, but you don’t have to go it alone. If you have water damage in your home, remove the water and wet materials, dry the structure, and contact professionals for help.

4 Important Tips for Recovering After Roof Damage

4/10/2018 (Permalink)

If high winds or hail damage your roof in Terre Haute, IN, you’re probably wondering what to do next. Storm cleanup and restoration companies may simplify the process because of their experience in handling all the details of this kind of disaster. Here are four steps the experts can help with to make your roof repair less stressful.


1. Protect the Affected Areas


One of the most pressing worries after roof damage occurs is preventing further property destruction. While more permanent solutions can take time, covering the affected areas with a tarp is a quicker fix. It can help protect your house from the elements while the rest of the repairs take place.


2. Remove Water and Dry Absorbent Materials


Next, the experts can use specialized equipment such as pumps and wet/dry vacuums to remove any standing water. Then comes the crucial step of drying any porous building materials such as drywall and wood. Industrial-strength dehumidifiers and high-speed air movers help with this step, which can prevent the contents from swelling, warping, or becoming moldy.


3. Complete Restorations


Technicians can also complete and coordinate all necessary reparations. These include simpler things such as repainting the walls as well as more complex jobs such as drywall replacement, floor installation, and roof repair. Having the same company assist with every step of this process can save you time, money, and trouble.


4. Call Your Insurance Company


Whenever your home suffers from storm or wind damage, it can also be important to call your insurance company. An agent will likely ask questions about the extent of the problem to determine the company’s next steps. Cleanup and restoration companies encounter insurance companies' questions regularly and may be able to help you answer them more thoroughly.

When storms harm your rooftop, the cleanup and restoration can be complicated and time-consuming. Hiring professionals to help with everything from the water removal to the roof repair can lessen your workload and help guarantee your home is as close to its pre-damage state as possible.
