Storms that only swipe the coastline may result in storm surge that may be felt for miles inland
(PRWEB) May 07, 2012
Restoration Local, one of the leading providers of water damage restoration services in the country, is looking to add to its roster of service providers in advance of this years’ hurricane season, which begins near the end of June and runs up through thanksgiving. Last year saw a number of hurricanes and tropical storms, most notably the one two punch of Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee which devastated the eastern seaboard from the Carolinas through New York.
Water damage claims during hurricane seasons may not be confined to the path of the storm, as many of these storms may have effects reaching for hundreds of miles outside the storm system itself. Even storms that only swipe the coastline may result in storm surge that may be felt for miles inland, causing area flooding as well as damage to roofs and windows. Flash floods are the most dangerous effect, occurring in a matter of a few minutes and giving virtually no warning to those who may be in their path.
When such water damage occurs, it is very important to begin the restoration process as soon as possible. Water damage will not improve on its own, but it will get worse over time until it is properly treated and remediated. Fire damage can also seriously compromise the safety of your home or business. In both cases, long term problems such as mold and mildew may occur if the problem is not promptly treated.
Mold is the single most common byproduct of any type of water or storm damage, appearing in as little as 72 hours following any sort of flooding or water problems, spreading rapidly, and proving almost impossible to successfully remove. Mold alone can be responsible for a home or business being condemned and torn down, which makes prompt treatment of the problem a must.
Restoration Local offers 24/7 emergency service, industry certification from the Clean Trust or RIA, and a full range of services from water extraction, drying, carpet cleaning, mold removal, and structural repair and restoration, all designed to return a property to it pre-loss condition.
