What to do When Storm Damage Occurs in Fort Worth, TX
Here at SERVPRO of East Ft. Worth, we know a thing or two about the phrase "spring weather" means to us. It means a whole lot of rain, thunderstorms, lightning, flooding issues, and even tornadoes. We know what to do during a storm, but what do we do after a storm? Here are some helpful hints to get you back on track after a storm hits:
- You and your family's safety is the number one goal. Watch out for safety hazards such as broken glass and exposed nails. If dealing with floodwaters, be sure to wear protective clothing, including boots, gloves, eye protection, and masks, as floodwaters can carry sewage, bacteria, and other dangers. Stay away from downed power lines. Be sure to use a flashlight instead of a candle when inspecting your home at night.
- When it's safe to do so, document your damage. This will help when filing your insurance claim. Be sure to take photos and videos of your entire property from multiple angles. Take pictures of the interior and exterior.
- If you have flooding, water extraction is the most crucial step to restoring your home. By choosing SERVPRO of East Ft.
