Damaged Home in the Aftermath of a Storm

Storm Cleanup Can Be Stressful Without the Certified Technicians of SERVPRO Leading the Way

Storm damage can lead to a catastrophic aftermath and destruction of property. The sooner our experts at SERVPRO execute the rapid storm response to your area, the quicker we can perform an initial assessment of the damage and develop a plan of action to clean up the storm damage. Extensive property damage can occur leading to expensive repairs and unknown downtime. Your team at SERVPRO values your time and understands that any delays in storm damage assessment will affect your bottom line. Dealing with storm clean up can be an emotionally taxing situation. Our goal at SERVPRO is to perform a prompt restoration to get you back to normal in the shortest amount of time possible.
 
SERVPRO is well aware of the strength of extreme storms including tornadoes, hurricanes, tropical storms, and gale force winds. These severe storms may cause free standing structures such as sheds and trees to be uplifted. Large objects and trees have the potential to become airborne and be pummeled into houses. Large scale Westwood storm damage can occur leading to down power lines, broken windows, crushed rooftops, and damage to cars nearby. Wind lifted debris and rubble can become projectile and airborne leading to unprecedented damage and emergencies. Homeowners should realize the emergent nature of storms and remain sheltered until it is safe to come out. Storm rooms are becoming increasingly popular as a safe haven to seek shelter during a severe storm.
 
Once the storm is over, our highly skilled storm cleanup experts will assess the damage from the storm and develop a plan of action for recovery efforts. Some storms produce enough rain that flooding conditions may be favorable in low-lying areas. SERVPRO will step in immediately to begin the water extraction process.

Never walk into standing water because experts need to determine if there are any down power lines supplying an electric current to the free standing water. Our team of professionals also cautions you not to move furniture or other material objects saturated with water. These objects will be heavier than you may expect due to the water saturation.
 
Homeowners and residents should have an escape plan to leave the basement of their home if flooding occurs in the lowest area of the house. Sometimes high winds have destroyed portions of the roof leaving the dwelling susceptible to water damage if it begins raining after the storm. In the unfortunate event that a severe storm leaves you with storm damage, contact SERVPRO of Westwood-West Beverly Hills to begin your storm restoration at (310) 390-7540.
