Navigating the Aftermath of Storm Damage | SERVPRO of Kent

Tree Damage to Roof after Major Monsoon Are you left with the aftermath of storm damage to your home? Call SERVPRO of Kent today. We are here to restore quickly!

We have all seen coverage of towns after a storm rips through the area, and it can be really overwhelming and emotional to see all of the damage left behind as a result of rain, wind and other storm elements. 

Storm damage can happen to anyone at any time, so knowing what to do after the storm passes is essential to your safety. Follow the tips below to stay safe and to ensure you make a full recovery. 

When the Storm Passes

You have done all you could and are currently hunkered down safely in your safe shelter location in your home. The wind is slowly dying down, it’s not raining as hard and the weather alert has finally expired. 

While that might signal the “all clear” to get up and check out your home, be cautious! Check the radar or tune into your weather radio to make sure another round of storms isn’t on the way. 

If it is safe to get up and investigate your home, bring your phone with you just in case you run into any trouble. Walk slowly and carefully, as broken glass, bent nails or shattered floorboards can be really dangerous.

Now is also the time to call any family members who were not home when the storm passed through and send someone to go check on your neighbors. Storms impact homes differently, even if they are just across the street from you. Once you have deemed everyone safe and no emergency services are required, call up SERVPRO of Kent.

What Our Storm Restoration Looks Like 

Recovering quickly after suffering storm damage is vital. In many circumstances, storm damage can make your home more vulnerable to further damage if there are holes or structural issues anywhere in your home. 

Our team will arrive quickly to get started on your restoration. In the meantime, take pictures of the damage so you can use those images in your storm damage insurance claim. 

We can be at your home quickly, but sometimes it is necessary for you to take preventive steps while you wait for us to arrive. If it is still raining or drizzling but you have a broken window or a tree fell on your house and your living room is now exposed to the elements, quickly secure tarps or boards. This isn’t a permanent fix, but it can help protect your possessions from further damage. You can also start the process of pulling your belongings out of the affected area. 

Our team will get right to work professionally securing your home, and then we will turn our attention to your damaged floors, roof and walls. We will remove standing water, dry out your home and tackle any repairs with confidence. Let us help you put your home back together faster. 

Don’t wait to recover from storm damage! Call SERVPRO of Kent for quick assistance.
