Storms Leave Water Damage in Orlando Home
High Winds that Rip Shingles and Siding off Orlando Homes Leave Unwanted Openings Behind
Although a steady rainfall or even a storm brings much-appreciated rain to the Orlando area, loosened areas of your house's exterior might not hold up well. Areas of loosened exterior materials or pieces already in disrepair can end up in your lawn or driveway. When these pieces still have fasteners attached to them, the mess can create an additional and immediate safety hazard.
Making sure that the safety of your residence in Orlando after a storm damages exterior components is essential to us at SERVPRO. Our building services team, General Contractor License # CBC1258985, handles such repair work while our mitigation professionals take care of your home's interior. All work, both inside and out, is done according to local and state requirements using methods accepted by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).
Openings in your roof can soak your home from top to bottom, with rain following the easiest, least encumbered way downward. Such pathways can lead water through insulation, wiring, electrical boxes, and ventilation systems. Our IICRC-certified staff works on extracting the rainwater from every inch of your residence. The wide range of materials in your home require skilled professionals that understand the most effective ways of drying things.
When siding comes away from the side of your home, rain hitting the area can get trapped between lower sections of siding and the exterior sheathing. Trapped water often slowly trickles away, but some can remain in seams that previously stayed dry. We can check these areas and mitigate any potential problem areas. Pests that already existed may have burrowed into exterior wall spaces, allowing rain to enter your living space. We can handle all of these situations, and more, to protect your property.
Our building services include inspection and repair for HVAC units and related ducts, as well as electrical systems. Both of these can become damaged by invasive rainwater. Microbes growing inside your ventilation system can spread with ease into every room of your home, potentially causing unwanted health effects in your family members. We encourage you to discuss how our full range of services can make your home's restoration process faster while keeping costs low.
