Document the Damage


As soon as you can safely approach your property, you will want to take photographs of the damage that you can use as proof for your insurance company. Make sure to take an inventory of both the interior and exterior of the property, and consult with SERVPRO of Winnetka/Wilmette/Skokie for any needed inspections. Call SERVPRO of Winnetka/Wilmette/Skokie at 847-600-0102 and our team of professionals will help you in every step of the process


Repair the Roof if needed


Storms generally affect the roof of homes and businesses the hardest. Once the roof is compromised, water damage can and will  severely affect the interior of the property. Make sure to have the roof inspected and repaired early in the clean up effort so that the remainder of the property is protected from further damage.


Water Restoration is critical


Cleaning up flooded property requires a professional technique to ensure that all affected materials are returned to their original dry standard, or removed if necessary. If your property has been wet for any length of time, it may also be necessary to do a mold inspection since it only takes 24 to 48 hours for certain types of mold to grow. While you can do your part to help, such as removing contents that were unaffected by the storm, it is best to let a professional handle things such as determining whether or not your carpet can be salvaged.


The amount of damage even a short storm can do can be devastating. Yet, it is possible to salvage some types of materials and save a good portion of your property, provided you act quickly. By keeping safety in mind and working with a professional clean-up crew like the one at SERVPRO of Winnetka/Wilmette Skokie you will have your property looking "Like it never even happened."


 


Call the professionals at SERVPRO of Winnetka/Wilmette/Skokie at 847-600-0102 if you have incurred any storm damage. We are available 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week for emergency service.
