We Are…..#1 in Storm & Water Damage

2/25/2022 (Permalink)

Flooding is a coast-to-coast threat to the United States and its territories in all months of the year. Flooding typically occurs when prolonged rain falls over several days, when intense rain falls over a short period of time, or when an ice or debris jam causes a river or stream to overflow into local neighborhoods  Flooding can also result from the failure of a water control structure, such as a levee or dam. The most common cause of the flooding is water due to rain and/or snowmelt that accumulates faster than soils can absorb it or rivers can carry it away. Approximately seventy-five percent of all Presidential disaster declarations are associated with flooding. Below are the most common flood hazards to impact the United States:

  • Flash Flooding
  • River Flooding
  • Storm Surge and Coastal Inundation from Tropical and Non-Tropical Systems
  • Burn Scars/Debris Flows
  • Ice/Debris Jams
  • Snowmelt
  • Dry Wash
  • Dam Breaks/Levee Failure
  • Our Water Damage Restoration Process

    Every water damage situation is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

    Step 1: Emergency Contact

    Step 2: Inspection and Damage Assessment

    Step 3: Water Removal/Water Extraction

    Step 4: Drying and Dehumidification

    Step 5: Cleaning and Repair

    Step 6: Restoration

How To Prepare Your Home for a Winter Storm

Baby It's Cold Outside!!! Snow storms can mean beautiful scenery and downed power lines as well as communication disruptions

Winter storms can bring cold temperatures, icy roads, power losses, and loss of communication services.

Winter storms can bring cold temperatures, icy roads, power losses, and loss of communication services. To keep your home and family safe this winter, it’s important to prepare before a storm hits. Here are some tips to help you prepare your home for a winter storm:

  • Insulate water lines that run along exterior walls to help prevent freezing and bursting.
  • Caulk and weather-strip doors and windows.
  • Insulate walls and attic.
  • Repair any roof leaks and cut away tree branches that could fall onto your home.
  • Install storm windows or cover windows with plastic from the inside.
  • Have your chimney or flue inspected every year.
  • Install a battery-operated carbon monoxide detector and smoke detector. Make sure to test them monthly and replace the batteries twice a year. (Suggestion: When we change the clocks.)
  • If you use a wood stove, fireplace, or kerosene heater, keep a fire extinguisher nearby and keep all fuel-burning equipment vented outside. (Be sure you know how to operate the fire extinguisher)
  • Have your furnace and vents checked and cleaned every winter.
  • For older adults, keep an easy-to-read thermometer inside the home and check it often during winter months.
