Flood Damage Experts Of Santa Rosa Beach Talk About Problems With Fallen Tree Branches

6/16/2019 (Permalink)

Don’t let a tree branch be your new outdoor umbrella.

Let SERVPRO help you all the way.

During a severe thunderstorm that ravages its way through the Santa Rosa Beach area, many problems can arise. Thunderstorms produce a unique combination of clouds, wind, and excessive rain swirling in all directions, all of which can cause extreme flood damage to your property. Wind and water combined during a severe storm can become a destructive combination quickly. Once the exterior of your home gets breached, rainwater can make its way into the interior of your home and cause extensive flood damage to your building materials and contents.

Recently, much of the country has been the victim of heavy flooding and high-speed wind activity, including tornadoes. Therefore, flood damage in Santa Rosa Beach is more likely to occur this summer. Once water enters your home, there can be several problems that are not as obvious as the destructive physical issues. Moisture can ruin items as well as increase the relative humidity level inside your house, which can cause secondary problems like mold growth.

For example, if a tree branch hits your home, it is vital to call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. Our team of water restoration technicians or WRTs are certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification or IICRC and we work towards preventing secondary problems. We have vast amounts of experience in dealing with problems that are both minor and severe.

Once we arrive at your residence, we inspect the property and figure out the extent of the damage. To do this, we use specialized instruments such as moisture sensors. We have meters that can detect the presence of moisture in your carpets, drywall, and wooden objects. In some situations, we can utilize a thermal imaging camera for scanning the structure of your house for moisture.

If rainwater ever gets into your building as a result of high-speed winds, our WRTs at SERVPRO first stop the water from entering the interior of your home. We accomplish this by boarding up the hole from which the moisture entered. Once the water has stopped coming into your structure, we can then begin mitigating problems the moisture caused.

If you ever suffer from a tree branch crashing into your dwelling or another disaster after a storm, call SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes, & Washington Counties at (850) 267-0746 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
