A tornado, a hailstorm, a powerful hurricane or a chilly blizzard are all natural events that can cause severe damage to your property. We, at All Pro Restoration Services, are experts in property restoration after any weather-related damages.
What do you have to do after a strong storm?
If your property was subject to damage due to a tornado or a hurricane, before entering the premises, it is essential to stay safe and consult a specialist. Do not enter the building before consulting with a Florida Keys storm damage expert if doubted it sustained structural damage.
You should also get informed by listening to the local radio station and not venture outside your shelter until it is declared safe to do it. In case of strong winds taken down, trees or power poles stay away from downed lines and avoid standing in the water near downed wires.
Cleaning up after a tornado or hurricane
Our licensed Florida Keys storm damage professionals will carry specific works like structural repairs, roofing works or restoration of the electrical network inside the property. However, there are smaller tasks seemingly important that you can tackle:
- Remove outside and inside (if safe to enter the house) debris, storing it in a safe place
- Cover leaking roofs to prevent water damage but be careful when climbing ladders
- Keep moisture outside your home by removing wet carpets and rugs
- Maintain proper indoor ventilation by opening the windows and running fans if there is water damage
After completing these tasks, it's time to handover balance works to our professionals.
What are the restoration services after a storm?
Property restoration after the storm is a generic term and, depending on the type of damage your property sustained, can include but is not limited to:
- Removing of downed trees or power poles from your property
