Viewing the aftermath of a hurricane can leave you feeling helpless and at a loss as to what comes next. That’s where ServiceMaster Restoration of First Coast can help. Here are several steps we can take together to begin the recovery process after a Hurricane.
Prevent Additional Hurricane Damage
Hurricane winds frequently tear off roofs and break windows and doors, leaving your home or business vulnerable to additional damage. We’ll tarp your roof and board up your structure to prevent further water damage from rainwater. We also can stabilize your structure if needed and move furnishings and personal belongings to another location.
Quick water extraction plays a vital role in the recovery process. The longer water remains in a structure, the greater the likelihood mold will develop. Standing water creates secondary water damage to drywall, framing, HVAC systems, and wiring. We use heavy-duty wet/dry vacuums and submersible pumps for quick, effective water extraction.
Lower the Humidity
Once water extraction is complete, the next step is to remove remaining moisture that has soaked into walls, floors, and wood. Opening windows, running dehumidifiers, and using fans are among the ways you can dry out your home and lower humidity.
Begin the Cleanup
Cleaning up after a hurricane can be an extensive task. Every area reached by floodwaters or rainwater needs to be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. Although you can do some of the cleanup, some tasks, such as mold remediation, are best left to professionals. Plus, ServiceMaster professionals can get the job done much quicker than if you were to tackle it all yourself.
Poor restoration services can leave your family or business at risk for mold growth and additional structural damage. To learn more about how ServiceMaster Restoration of First Coast can help get your life back to normal, check out our water damage services or give us a call at (904) 449-7782.
