Storm Damage Recovery Requires Specialization

The timing and severity of destructive weather patterns are increasingly difficult to predict, and property owners are often surprised to find themselves in the path of severe winds and relentless precipitation. The resulting damage to structures and contents exposes homeowners and their families to significant hazards, completely disrupting daily life. It is critical to obtain prompt, professional assistance to restore your home to its previous level of safety, security, comfort, and appearance after a storm.

Surprising Effects of Severe Storms

White Plains storm damage is not limited to the deterioration of building materials due to roof leaks or seepage from saturated ground around foundations. Water damage can become just one of several problems with which to contend, highlighting the need for a full-service disaster response company like AdvantaClean of Westchester, Rockland, and Stamford. Unexpected issues that professional restoration technicians must address include:

  • Securing Damaged Exteriors

Roofs, siding, windows, and doors all take a beating during a storm. Your home's envelope requires immediate securing after a safety assessment. Boards, tarps, and temporary supports all have their uses in protecting your property and its inhabitants from continuous damage during the planning and implementation of remediation tasks.

  • House Fire Damage Cleanup 

  • Lightning can take out transformers, cutting off power and igniting nearby structures. A direct lightning strike on your home could start a fire on your roof or the upper levels of your attic.  

  • Trees and utility lines topple from the wind or the weight of snow and ice during winter storms, snapping wires that spark and catch your home on fire. 

  • Flooding inside your home can exert pressure on and crack fuel pipes, causing a gas line fire.

  • Contaminated Water and Sewage Backup Removal 

  • Municipal sanitary systems often cannot divert all the runoff during torrential rains and overland flooding. Waste from the city sewers and your drains backs up into your home's sewer line, spreading pathogens into storage and living areas.

  • Industrial waste, dead animals and insects, landscaping products, and pavement treatments could all end up inside your home during a storm. Sometimes, overland flooding sweeps it into your lower levels; other times, it is part of the sewage backup mixture.

  • Mold Growth and Damage Concerns

Mold spores germinate quickly, and colonies of fungal organisms multiply rapidly when building materials become wet. An infestation can take hold within 24 to 48 hours. Remediation must occur as soon as practical.
