Successfully Preparing for Storm

1/7/2022 (Permalink)

Weather conditions are known to place a tremendous amount of stress on consumers whenever a threat arises. Different types of storms and severe conditions leave people and property vulnerable to damage and conditions that are difficult to recover from. Anyone dealing with this issue should know the basics of successfully preparing for a severe storm to prevent major damages and issues from occurring on their property.

Storm preparations are usually performed in particular regard to the consumer while balancing what is needed for the family and safeguarding of personal assets. People focus on the ability to ensure that worst case scenarios are able to be survived through while also being able to avoid having to contend with significant damages once the storm has passed. Completing this process in a thorough and effective manner is crucial for any type of event.

Consumers are offered a tremendous array of guidelines and helpful hints when researching storm preparedness techniques. Many of the pieces of information available to people are quite unique in regard to circumstances and sources of ownership that are quite difficult to apply to personal situations. Concentrating on the most common yet successful processes helps anyone through their efforts in an effective manner.

Storm severity is the most initial and pertinent aspect of preparations for any consumer to understand. Each weather event is unique in regard to propensity for damage and the specific conditions that will be present throughout its entirety. Paying attention to weather reports and what is discussed in relation to the event is all that is necessary for this phase of the process.

Consulting with insurance carriers is also an essential proponent of the process. Insurance policies on any investment that has been made are usually specific in regard to the types of incidents and damages that are covered. Many providers also have preparedness guidelines to follow that help people consolidate in their efforts.

Clearing the yard of any potential hazards is also critical to complete. Lawn chairs and other loose objects that are able to be carried by the wind are among the leading sources of window shattering and roof damages. Removing these hazards and clearing the entire property prevents these issues from occurring.

Vehicle protection is often forgotten about by consumers during their preparations. A car cover is designed to suit the protective needs that people have when they are unable to find room in their garage. Various grades of quality and protection are offered to suit various weather conditions.

Often times the damage from water is caused when a problem goes without being noticed. It may take weeks or even months before the damage shows up.

Time is of the essence when you are dealing with any type of damage from water, and the key is to act fast!

Not only can the water ruin your carpets, ceiling, and furniture, but it can also destroy precious family possessions, important documents, and irreplaceable, personal items.

You may need to vacate your home during the repairs, and the disruption of your normal routine could really have a huge impact on your way of life.

Commercial Water Damage

11/22/2021 (Permalink)

Mother Nature can strike at anytime and at any place.  When a severe storm blows through, it can bring with it heavy rain, flooding, high winds, lightning, hail, and even tornadoes.  The damage that storms can inflict on buildings will vary depending on the type and severity of the storm.  Some of the potential kinds of damage that different storms can cause are cracked or shattered windows, roof damage from hail, damage from fallen branches/trees or even water damage from flooding.   If that damage isn’t repaired quickly, interior damage, mold, and damage to equipment and inventory can follow - not to mention the disruption caused for your employees and customers.  The costs of repairs to commercial buildings in particular are likely to be substantial due to the high concentration of glass used in these structures. Without the full and timely payment of insurance benefits, rebuilding and repairing can be prohibitively expensive.

SERVPRO of Lafayette/Moraga/Orinda understands that severe weather can happen without notice and cause water damage to your commercial property.  As a trusted restoration company, we’re dedicated to responding immediately to water and storm damage emergencies.  We have the experience and advanced training that enables us to restore your property quickly. We use scientific drying principles and provide validation and documentation that your property is dry and the job is complete.

Can Water Damage Happen to You?

11/10/2021 (Permalink)

Can water damage happen to you? The answer is yes. About 37% of all households in the US have experienced damage caused by water. Broken or burst pipes, leaking roofs, back pressure and storms are just a few ways water can damage your home. It is nearly impossible to safeguard against all forms of intrusion. However, you can take simple preventative measure to help you minimize these possibilities.

At least once per year you should perform simple inspection of your home.  Make sure to check water lines for cracks or signs of stress, make sure gutters are clear of debris, check the roof for missing or lose shingles or other damages and check windows and doors seals to ensure they are not damaged or if significant gaps exist. Doing these periodic checks can help eliminate water damage events in the future. Remember, “Fortune favors the PREPARED!”
