There are some steps you can take right away at home to minimize damage:
If you have lost power, remove perishable foods from your refrigerator and freezer. The odor caused by spoiled foods is nearly impossible to remove.
If you have NOT lost power, be cautious and look for any wires or trees that may have been knocked down by wind.
If you dispose of any materials or purchase any products that aid in protecting your property, keep a list of the expenses
Call your insurance company ASAP and report the damage.
If you have to relocate, try to cover open windows and doors.
Unfortunately you can't undo the damage done by the storm, but you can be better prepared for the next time. Not all homes in the area were originally built to withstand high winds and rain, so here is what you can do:
Make sure your roof is strongly intact. If not, glue it down.
If you plan on replacing your roof, make sure rafters and trusses are securely connected to the walls and follow the builder-code requirements.
Replace doors with heavy-duty foot and head bolts.
Reinforce garage doors to withstand strong winds.
Make sure any screened porches and windows are properly fastened to your house.
Remember: The damage has been done, and all we can do is move on from here. Let us help you move in the opposite direction of the storm. Wind and water are unpredictable, but our services are not.
