What do the professionals do?
Many storm remediation companies are available around the clock to respond to flood water, ice damage, hurricane damage and more.
When the restoration professionals arrive, they will get to work assessing what kind of water, hail, or ice damage you might be dealing with as the homeowner. They will look all over your property for signs of damage. Once they know the full extent and have a damage report for what you're dealing with, they can then assess a home restoration plan to get your house back into safe and livable condition.
The storm restoration plan may include using equipment like a flood pump to pump out ground water left behind by river flooding or frozen pipes. A flood pump is a standard piece of equipment used by companies that specialize in thawing frozen pipes, repairing an ice dam, and other types of home remediation. Depending on how much ground water is found inside and outside of your home, the flood pump might be the only option for getting rid of river flooding and undue this type of flooding damage.
Flood water can also enter your home through a roof leak. If your property has sustained significant wind damage, you may have suffered a roof leak and roof damage. That includes loosened or missing shingles and torn away tar paper. If your house has flooding coming in through the walls, foundation, and roof, partial or full roof repair may be part of the plan put together by the company you hire for storm remediation. It may sound like a lot of work, but in the end you and your people will be much safer in the long run.
You get the final say

The home restoration professionals will consult you every step of the way so that you are in charge of the water restoration and storm damage cleanup.
