Storms can cause a lot of damage to homes. If you do not know how to recuperate from storm damage, then it is important that you hire a professional. At SERVPRO of Summerlin North/ Sun City, we have been helping people with their home restoration needs for many years. We will make sure that your home is taken care of after a storm and that you are back in your house as soon as possible.

Inspect your home for Damage

After a big storm, it is important to inspect your home for damage. The best way to do this is by doing a thorough walk-through of your property and checking every room. It's also helpful to take pictures of any damage so you can reference them later when claiming insurance or filing claims with the government.

Here are some things you should look for:

  • broken windows or doors
  • damaged walls, ceilings, or floors (cracks in drywall may indicate that there's been water damage)
  • fallen trees/limbs/branches (make sure they haven't damaged anything on the inside of your house)

Check your Homes Exterior

After a storm, it's important to inspect your home’s exterior. This includes checking for missing shingles, damaged or missing gutters, damaged siding and windows and doors. You should also look at roof vents and chimneys to see if they were affected by the storm.

Inspect your Roof

You should inspect your roof to make sure there aren't any missing, broken or loose shingles. Look for discoloration and curling of shingle edges as well. If you find that there's damage to your flashing, this must be repaired before moving on to the next step in the inspection process. If you don't know what flashing is or how it works, ask a professional about this step in the inspection process so that you can properly evaluate and fix any damage that exists in your home.

Also check for missing or damaged gutters because they are an important part of protecting your home from water damage during storms like hurricanes and tropical storms.

Look for fallen trees and limbs

You should also look for trees that have fallen or are leaning toward your home. You will want to check them for stability, and remove any branches or leaves that could be potential fire hazards. Next, you should inspect your roof for damage from falling debris, such as branches and leaves falling from nearby trees. If you see any damage on your roof, it is important to repair this as soon as possible because leaving it unattended could result in further structural breakdowns within the house itself.

Check the interior of your home

Inspect the interior of your home for damage to walls, floors and ceilings. Check for leaks in plumbing or electrical systems and make sure that any damaged parts are repaired before you resume normal use.

Take care of any leaks ASAP

If you notice water coming into your home, it is important to take care of it as soon as possible. Water can cause mold and mildew to grow in your home. If you have any concerns about mold or mildew, call a professional immediately.
