Remember These Steps If You Have Storm Damage

8/29/2022 (Permalink)

When severe storms occur, the property damage that most often occurs is from water.  While storm-related water damage can be planned for, it sometimes happens regardless.  The following are some steps to remember if your home suffers this type of damage.

1. Know Your Home

The more familiar you are with your property, the quicker you will be able to accurately identify the source of water, and can take steps to stop the flow.  Even better, use this time before a storm hits to fix any problem areas that you are aware of.

2. Contact Your Insurance Company

You have homeowners insurance for a reason.  This is a time when you should call your provider to make a claim and find out exactly what your policy covers.  

3. Be Proactive

Storm-related water damage is never good, but with a quick response, the extent of the damage can be contained.  You must act quickly though, as the damage will become worse by the minute or hour.  This may drive the cost of remediation up.  Waiting too long to call your insurance company could make filing a claim harder as well.

4. Save Your Possessions If Possible

  • Unplug any electrical devices from the wall
  • If safe to do so, move any valuable or sentimental items away from the water source

5. Call SERVPRO of Greenwich ASAP

Trust SERVPRO of Greenwich for all of your water damage remediation needs.

When you sustain water damage at your home or business, all you likely will want is to be back to normal.  Having water damage can be overwhelming, so you want the repairs to be over as soon as possible.  We understand that, feeling, so we want to get it done for you in a timely manner.

In a usual situation, you can expect full remediation in three to five days.  

Day one, when we arrive on scene for the first time, is for stabilizing the issue.  This means extracting water and setting equipment to begin the drying process.  During this time, we communicate with your insurance company to find out exactly what your coverage is.  This informs us as to what repairs will be covered.  

Days two through five are for monitoring moisture levels in your home or business, as well as making necessary structural repairs signed off on by your insurance company.  Assuming that moisture levels are declining normally, no extra days of drying will be needed.Once the area is thoroughly dried, and moisture levels are back to a regular level, we remove our equipment and you are good to go.

Prepare Your Home For Wind Damage

3/30/2022 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO of Greenwich, we want to help you prepare for the possibility of wind damage. While it is not a huge issue in Fairfield County, it can be some of the most costly to remediate. This is because wind damage can cause massive issues with your roof and exterior, which may cause other secondary problems down the road.  

That being said, preparing for wind damage is not too hard.  Below, we’ve listed a few ways that you can insulate yourself against major damage from wind during a storm or otherwise.  Following any or all of these actions may save you both headache and financial burden in the future.

Check your roof - make sure that shingles are all properly secured so that wind will not tear them and blow them away.

Trim your trees - loose and dead limbs can easily be blown into your house, which can cause major damage.

Dispose of loose debris - keeping a tidy yard will eliminate items that could potentially hit your home.  This can even extend to smaller items that you keep outside.

Deal with larger items - items like a grill, outdoor furniture, and bicycles should either be secured outside or stored inside before a storm.

Don’t Wait To Start Remediation

3/24/2022 (Permalink)

No one wants to experience property damage, both for emotional and financial reasons.  When this damage does occur at your property, you may want to file an insurance claim.  You may also be tempted to not clean anything, because you think it will detract from the money that you will get from your insurance company.  But this isn't actually true.

You Won’t Lose Money Cleaning Up

You may think that by seeing the maximum extent of the damage, you will get the most money from your insurance company, so you hold off on remediating any damage.

On the contrary, the insurance company may not send an adjuster out to inspect the damage until some of the damage has been removed, and it is safe to be in the space. Start the cleanup process as soon as you can.  You should document any cleanup that you do, so that you are fairly compensated for your loss and efforts.

Attic Moisture Is Not Good

3/23/2022 (Permalink)

Moisture and water damage can occur anywhere in a home or business.  But there are areas that are at higher risk for these types of problems.  Due to the fact that attics and crawl spaces are not frequented, moisture and water within may go unnoticed for a longer period of time.  This can lead to a myriad of issues.

Mold Growth

Unchecked and unattended water may lead to the growth of mold.  This is especially true when temperatures begin to warm, as it only heightens the likelihood of perfect conditions for growth.

Foul Odors

Due to mold, or just musty conditions, you may develop a bad smell that can only be fixed by drying and deodorizing the affected area.

Destruction of Belongings

Anything that you have stored in these spaces may become compromised by water damage or mold.

To prevent any of these issues from happening, make it a habit to check your attic and crawl spaces for moisture regularly.  Also, make sure that your roof is secure, and replace any shingles that are damaged or missing.
