Summer is a time for vacations, family, and friends. Storms are also a regular occurrence during the summer. Severe storms can cause major damages to your home.  Wind and hail are the main culprits, but flash flooding is also a danger. Disaster Cleanup Services is here to help you determine if you have storm damages and what you should do.

  • Check your Property for any Debris

This is the first thing you should do after a severe storm. Are there any shingles on the ground? Has any trees or limbs fallen? If you notice any debris, there is a chance your home has been damaged.

  • Check the Exterior of your Home

Walk around your home and see if you have any visible damages. This could be limbs or hail that has broken a window, or damaged your roof. If you see damages, it is important to call a disaster cleanup company.

  • Never Get on your Roof

The worst thing you can do, is get on top of your roof. If the area is weakened, you could fall through your roof causing more damages to your home and injuries to yourself. Have a professional check your roof. Most companies will do a free roof assessment for you.

  • Check for Downed Lines

If you have any electrical lines down, call your electric company immediately. It is important to stay away from the lines, as they could still be carrying power.

  • Check the Interior of your Home

If nothing is wrong outside, it is still important to check the interior of your home. You could have flooding in your basement or leaking in your attic. These problems could turn into a severe problem if left.

Above are just a few things to look for this summer. If you do experience a storm, relax and call a disaster cleanup service. They will be able to handle all damages and clean the area for you. Never try to fix a water stain or remove mold yourself. It is dangerous and could make problems worse.
