Damage from hurricanes can be catastrophic. Hurricane Katrina caused over $160 billion in damage, with Hurricane Harvey coming in just behind that at slightly over $128 billion. Storm damage Indianapolis can occur from the wind, rainfall, and tornadoes spawned by hurricanes and tropical storms. Residents of Indiana experienced the destruction from Hurricane Ike in 2008. While no one wants to be a victim of extreme weather, if it does happen, our team at Steamatic of North Indiana is here for our neighbors in times of need.
Effects of Storm Damage
As tropical storms and hurricanes move inland, even though it may have weakened, torrential rains, lightning, flooding, and wind can still cause destruction. Some of the types of damage homeowners may see are primarily from wind and high water, often in conjunction. High winds can cause trees, limbs, cars, outdoor furniture, and even parts of other structures into the home, opening it up to the elements. When heavy rains or flooding are giving easy entry into the house through broken windows or roofs, storm damage restoration is needed quickly.
Wind Damage Cleanup
High winds can do an incredible amount of damage. In the lower 48 states, damage from a thunderstorm or straight-line winds is more common than that from tornadoes. Straight-line wind damage accounts for one-half of all severe weather reports. Winds can reach speeds of up to 100 mph and create a trail of destruction over hundreds of miles.
Straight-line winds, as well as rotating winds from tornadoes and hurricanes, can do damage by tearing roofs and siding off of homes and breaking windows. Often the damage is caused by debris blown into the structure like trees, limbs, and anything in the path of the wind. When our emergency response team for wind catastrophe damage arrives, they will immediately remove debris and secure the structure until the weather has calmed and repairs can begin. Temporary measures may include boarding up broken windows, covering the roof, and ensuring that the yard and building are free of hazards.
Water Damage Recovery
Water damage can be incredibly invasive, therefore it requires quick response and knowledgeable treatment. Particularly with flooding, the ripple effects of standing water on the floors and wall can harbor even more dangers if appropriate recovery protocols are not followed. Mold, mildew, and contamination from floodwaters can cause long-term health problems. Structural issues like rotting, warping, shifting, and cracking in the supports and foundation can occur.
At Steamatic of North Indianapolis, we follow the Environmental Protection Agency guidelines along with industry best practices when remediating water damage. Our water mitigation services use state-of-the-art detection, drying, and monitoring equipment to find and intercept the destruction. Dehumidification is critical to remove excess water vapor to prevent harmful mold and mildew from developing. Proper drying and cleaning are crucial in storm damage restoration when water is involved.
Removal of standing water, as well as soaked materials like carpeting, furniture, draperies, and drywall, are the first step. Thorough dehumidification and cleaning with anti-microbial agents prevent contamination and bacterial growth. Once the home is dry and clean, we can get started on permanent repair and reconstruction.
