After The Storm: Know What To Look For In Your Winston Home
We hear almost daily about being prepared. Whether it’s something simple like preparing for the first day of school or something more serious like preparing your home for possible storms, having a checklist may help prevent you from becoming overwhelmed.
If you have structural damage from a storm, vacate the property immediately and contact your first responders, your insurance agent, and the SERVPRO of Lexington/Thomasville. While your agent starts the claims process, our team of highly trained technicians can begin securing your property once first responders deem it safe to enter. Our team will board up windows, tarp roofs and check for other visible damage. At the same time, first responders begin to assess any other emergency needs such as downed powerlines or other safety concerns.
Once the property is secure, you or the team of SERVPRO of Lexington/Thomasville can begin taking photos of the damage before anything is moved. Once all the damage has been documented, our technicians will begin to assess what can be saved.
We would begin inspection of your home, looking for cracks, leaks and other structural damage so a plan of action can be implemented. We highly recommend that you don’t try to do this yourself. If not correctly handled, storm-damaged can lead to further problems such as mold in your home. To learn more or schedule your free estimate, give us a call at 336-224-2565.
