After a severe storm, feeling overwhelmed is natural, as if your life has been turned upside down. But you must work on jumpstarting your home restoration and getting your life back to normal. Knowing what to do after a storm has hit your home protects your family, belongings, and homestead from further damage. Having a plan in place can help you get your life and property restored as soon as possible.

Prioritizing Your Safety

It is crucial to prioritize safety when facing storm damage to your Kennesaw home in the aftermath of a hurricane, flooding, or torrential storm system. If you had to evacuate before the storm, it is advisable to stay at an emergency shelter or a hotel or with a friend or family. Before returning home, check your house for hazards to ensure your family's safety.

It is imperative to ensure that your home is safe before inspecting it for damages, even if you did not have to leave it during the incident. Be aware that there may be hazards in the vicinity, such as slippery areas, broken glass, exposed electrical lines, and damaged gas lines. So, exercise caution as you begin assessing the situation of your home.

Learn and Document the Storm Damage

To ensure a swift and efficient storm cleanup, it is vital that you comprehensively assess and document all the damages your home has sustained, both inside and out, resulting from the storm.

  • Roof leaks, damaged or missing shingles, split seams, and compromised gutters

  • Siding missing from the outside of your home

  • Broken or cracked windows, missing or damaged doors

  • Destroyed or disabled appliances like outside AC units

  • Flooding in susceptible areas of your property

  • Potential fire damage from electrical issues

It is imperative to take immediate action and document any property damage by taking pictures before moving or removing anything. Make sure to report all damages to your insurance provider so they can assess the extent of the damage. If you feel overwhelmed with the documentation and damage claim approval process, AdvantaClean of Marietta can assist you.
