Insurance Coverage for Storm Damage Restoration
Storm damage can be stressful for you and your family. You shouldn’t need to worry about your insurance, as well. That’s why Dream Stream will work directly with your insurance provider during the restoration process. We ensure you get the highest quality repairs without the stress.
How Storms Can Damage your Home
A severe storm can wreak havoc on your home. Once the storm has passed, it’s important to get started with restoration as soon as possible. Dream Steam is available to respond on site any time of the day or night, but here are some of the common types of storm damage and how you can be prepared in each scenario.
Whether you’re getting ice and freezing rain or massive amounts of snow, winter storms can be hard on your home. Don’t get on the roof or climb into the attic after a winter storm. Freezing weather can leave a layer of ice that you may not be able to see. Our home restoration experts will check for any signs of leakage in the attic, missing or damaged shingles, bent or detached exhaust pipes, and damage to any connecting areas such as vents and valleys.
Stay in your home until the storm passes, and keep a safety preparedness kit handy that includes food and power sources.
Lightning and Thunderstorms
Thunderstorms can bring many forms of damage including lightning, wind, hail, and flooding. Lightning and flood damage will usually be emergency situations. If lightning strikes your home, you will probably notice damage to your wiring and appliances. Avoid electrical outlets and appliances until an emergency restoration professional arrives. Unless there is an electrical fire, stay inside your home. Flooding can cause many issues. Within 24 hours of water damage, your home is at risk of developing mold. Stop the water flow if possible and contact Dream Steam immediately.
Tornadoes and High Winds
Damage from wind and tornadoes can be immense and devastating. First, be sure that your family is equipped with a storm emergency plan. Your safety is the top priority. After tornado or wind damage, your home should be evaluated for structural damage and potential risk posed by debris in the area, such as trees that may still be at risk of falling after the storm has passed.
