Nashua Professionals Talk Repairing Storm Damage to Nashua Homes
How Hard is the Process of Fixing Storm Damage in Your Nashua Property?
Extreme weather causes different types of damages to properties. Strong winds in storms can rip open, or punch holes in roofs by driving heavy debris. The torrential rain during storms can also leave your Nashua home flooded. Although storms are predictable, the immobile nature of homes means the only option is fixing damages once the storm passes. Dealing with storm damage can be hard or simple, depending on your approach.
Debris Removal Might be Tougher than Expected
Removal of debris is a significant step when fixing storm damage in your Nashua home. Large debris such as fallen tree branches requires sophisticated equipment to move. Debris such as silt swept into the house by groundwater might be hazardous, therefore requiring protective equipment when handling. Our SERVPRO crews have access to a wide range of equipment for easier access in elevated areas and safe handling of hazardous materials. These include:
- Cherry pickers
- Heavy Duty Gloves
- Rubber Boots
Some Level of Demolition is Part of the Restoration
Different problems occur once floodwaters reach the interior of the structure. Severe damage can occur on sheetrock and other porous wall materials due to wicking water or if an opening on the roof lets water through. Drying such materials cannot restore their structural integrity, so demolition is the only alternative. Our SERVPRO technicians can help ease the process because we have access to the right equipment. We also utilize unique approaches such as making flood cuts allowing us to remove only the affected drywall and insulation, leaving the rest in place.
Widespread Decontamination is Necessary
Since floodwaters contain traces of biohazards such as raw sewage and chemicals, you need to decontaminate all areas such water reaches. It is usually a multi-step process involving thorough cleaning to remove all residues left by floodwater before applying chemical agents to sanitize the affected areas. Our SERVPRO technicians spray EPA registered disinfectants into the water before starting removal and cleanup. We also use specialized equipment such as pressure washers for a thorough cleanup.
