4 Steps to Ease Storm Repairs

Nature has a way of making a smooth-sailing business in Pulaski, TN, being forced to deal with water damage and other issues after a storm. In these cases, time is always of the essence, especially when water is concerned. Having to tear out saturated drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials may be key to prevent ongoing issues. After the storm passes, the following tips can help ease the process and get your business back on track.

1. Inspect the Property

Once it has been determined that the building is safe to enter, check the property for broken windows, flooding, leaks and other damage. If possible, board up windows and remove unaffected items to keep them from becoming damaged. The process of removing excess water should begin right away.

2. Document the Damage

Take photos of the interior and exterior. This includes detailed photos of equipment, furniture and other valuables that have been damaged. It is important to document any missing shingles, siding damage or other structural issues, as well as HVAC systems.

3. Make a Claim

The sooner you make a claim, the sooner the storm restoration process can begin. It is a good idea to keep your insurance representatives number saved in your phone for quick, immediate access. If other businesses or homes in the area received significant damage, an immediate call can help you be at the top of the list. When the adjuster comes, be onsite to assist with any questions.

4. Get Professional Help

Contacting a water remediation and restoration expert is key to getting your property back to “Like it never even happened.” They will perform a diligent inspection, including what isn’t always visible, and complete the necessary cleanup. During the restoration process, the experts have industrial tools to eradicate excess moisture, tear out damaged areas and replace what needs to be replaced. While they may have to tear out some portions, a trusted professional will do their best to salvage what they can to reduce your losses.
While dealing with storm damage can be an unexpected headache, having a plan and getting the right help can make it easier.
