When Severe Storms Cause Flooding In Your Destin Residence
Call SERVPRO Fast to Keep Storm Damages to a Minimum
A raging storm might seem potentially problematic enough as it is, considering elements like hail and high winds that can significantly impact the structural integrity of the exterior of your Destin home. The truth is, it is often the least expected culprits that tend to do the most substantial damage. A good example is falling tree limbs (or uprooted trees in general) that gash holes into the siding and through interior walls, or collapse portions of a roof, presenting large holes which allow rainwater from the severe storm to quickly access the interior of your house.
From the moment that a disaster like this strikes your Destin home, it is now susceptible to flood damage. If the severe storm that impacted the tree to fall into your house continues for some time, it can allow untold amounts of rainwater to access the affected area of your home through the newly formed wound. While you might not have the experience to handle a situation like this and to restore the current damages to preloss conditions, our experienced SERVPRO technicians do.
When we get dispatched to your home (either amid the storm or after) our immediate priority is the same: we have to seal up the exterior damage to your home that became the source of the floodwater. Often this is simple enough to do in a fundamental sense, as we can board up or tarp over holes to keep elemental damages from getting worse while the restoration process is underway. However, this is a stop-gap measure if it is not too extensively damaged. A construction company should be called in for permanent fixing of breaches to the structure.
Once this process has gotten completed, our SERVPRO restoration specialists can implement our extraction equipment to pull the high volumes of water from the floors and surfaces of this area of your home. Wet-vacs with extraction wands typically get used in these situations as they are small enough to reach into smaller crevices and have the power to pull up the liquid quickly.
It is nice to think of SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach as neighborhood professionals that can help you to restore your home in the event of storm damage and flooding.
