Knowing What to Do After Storm Damage Gets Your Business Up and Running Quicker | SERVPRO of North Lilburn GA
Building Owners and Property Managers Trust SERVPRO to Return Them to "Business as Usual" After a Storm
Storm damage to a business is devastating is more than one way. Not only does it cause severe structural damage. It can also cause catastrophic losses in revenue. In Lilburn, Lawrenceville, and surrounding areas, we’re accustomed to storm damage. Keeping up with storm watches and warnings is imperative around here as conditions can change in an instant.
For low-rise buildings, we’re getting a lot of rain this year which means waterlogged tree roots need less wind for trees to be blown on to your roof. Some storm damage is much more substantial than roof damage and we handle it all. Not only do we mitigate and remediate, but we also can provide reconstruction as well. Our construction project managers and their teams have handled storm damage to universities, large government buildings like the Pentagon, hotels, and airports. Our disaster recovery teams are always “ready for whatever happens”.
When SERVPRO of North Lilburn is your provider of choice, you can rest assured we are ready to answer the call for whatever storm damage you incur. We receive emergency calls 24/7. Our licensed professionals can be on their way to you shortly after we speak. Until we arrive, we urge you to:
- Be careful: We know you need pictures for insurance purposes so be careful and alert when surveying your business.
When we arrive, we make sure no further damage is incurred. We also ensure the area is safe for our construction crew to begin the storm damage restoration process. During this process, we’re looking for and remedying possible dangerous conditions such as structural weakness, and electrical, as down power lines are usually an issue.
Water Damage from Storm Damage
Standing water can cause permanent damages by seeping into subfloor or wall cavities. Where standing water is above two inches, we can use submersible gas pumps to drain the affected area. Below two inches, we bring in portable water extraction units that reduce the risk of damaging your carpets or upholstery. However, the job does not finish there.
Removing water is the first step. Secondary damages can occur if water resides hidden in areas of the building. We use moisture meters to seek out these areas and can remediate them using advanced technology. Drying mats, for example, can remove moisture from your subfloor without removing hardwood flooring. The use of deodorizers and dehumidifiers can help make the damage "Like it never even happened."
