There are many perks to living in Florida, but hurricanes certainly aren’t one of them. Of course, this isn’t anything new to you, but maybe you’re not aware of the depth of the damage these freaks of nature can create. According to the weather statistics site wunderground.com, 2005’s Hurricane Katrina created more than 100 billion dollars in wreckage, ripping violently through the southeast, and parts of Florida.
Just a year earlier, Hurricane Charley made its way directly through Sarasota and caused 15 billion in damage, overall. For most of us, Florida offers a relaxing, comfortable lifestyle; but dealing with the harsh reality of these natural disasters can be difficult, to say the least. We’re here to tell you exactly how we can save your home, after a hurricane has just blown through.
Your Nightmare, A Reality
One of your nightmares has just come true—a hurricane has hit your town and ravaged your home. You’re wading through water on your living room floor, your roof is leaking, and there’s no place for you to sit. It’s understandable that you’d be overwhelmed in a situation like this. What do you address first? Can your home be salvaged or is it too late?
It All Might Start With A Leaking Roof
Your roof is arguably the most important structure in your entire home, as it’s ultimately what protects you and your family from the elements. But when it’s been damaged in some way, like in a hurricane, the leaking water isn’t just a nuisance. It can cause mold and mildew buildup overtime, which has the capacity to make everyone sick.
Our experienced contractors suggest that regular roof maintenance is the key to a roof that will withstand harsh weather conditions. Actually, the most common cause of a leaking roof is due in part to a lack of consistent upkeep. However, we realize that if a storm is strong enough, regular maintenance might not even matter so much—the result of such a storm is a water-soaked home interior.
When this happens, our IICRC trained staff are equipped with superior hurricane services in Sarasota, to address a variety of water-logged structures in your home.
Soaking Up the Water Before Your Carpet Does
It’s probably no new news to you that carpeting found in Florida homes tends to harbor moisture, due to the state’s ultra-humid climate. And, along with this moisture comes bacteria, allergens, and other microscopic organisms that can be harmful to you and your family.
It’s a given, then, that when this carpeting experiences a hefty flooding, these concerns would only be amplified. Our carpeting technicians have the skills and the state-of-the-art technology to combat carpet floods from even the worst hurricanes Florida has ever seen.
A Diligent Treatment Of Wood Floors
When hurricane flooding does a number on your wood floors, time is definitely of the essence. Wood flooring is a temperamental thing, and even the mildest changes in temperature and moisture can effect its structural integrity—just imagine what a significant flood can do.
Our experienced technicians offer you a one-hour guarantee, so that we’re at your residence just in time to rid your floors of all that ugly hurricane-induced water.
