Your Belongings and Storm Damage

Responding to Storms in Coral Springs

Natural disasters come in multiple forms - hurricanes, tornadoes, and even a line of intense storms with straight-line winds. Storm damage happens in numerous ways, too. Powerful wind causes flying debris and downed trees impacting, roofs, windows, and walls. Flash flooding and rising water from rain can quickly inundate our surroundings. Lighting strikes, sending an electrical current through the wiring of homes, causing severe damage to plugged-in electrical appliances. Fires happen, floodwater sweeps away anything in its path, and there is structural ruin all around.

When the worst has passed, your property and its contents may be exposed to the elements. That is when it is time to call SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland to assess the storm damage, clean up debris, and remove the water quickly so reconstruction can begin.

Winds, blowing rain, and high water affects the exterior of a dwelling as well as the inside. You might want to jump right in, but the risk of danger is high. Before starting repairs yourself, contact your insurance company.

SERVPRO of West Coral Springs / West Parkland specializes in cleanup and restoration 24/7/365. Consider hiring a fully licensed and bonded contractor like us with credentials from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).
