Plan For Storm Damage in Northern Summit County

When a major storm passes close to the house, the home may suffer water damage that is difficult to repair. A certified professional will likely be needed to help prevent serious health or structural threats. Storm surges can carry pathogens and mold.

The main reason a home is prone to water damage is because moisture is difficult to detect. Moisture can collect behind the walls, where mold and bacteria may multiply.

Professional restoration services can quickly identify what items in the home are compromised. Anything that is porous may need to be discarded such as mattresses, box springs, pillows and particleboard.

A family can prepare for professional cleaning by getting rid of these items before the technicians arrive, but record and itemize these items for insurance purposes. Technicians trained in this restoration field know how to find compromised areas and restore them.
