Storm Damage Storm Damage Prevention Tips This photo shows how high the water level can get in a home when flooding occurs due to heavy rains.

SERVPRO knows that storms are not set to a specific schedule, that’s why all SERVPRO franchises keep their doors open 24/7. We have the resources to handle any size disaster with a quicker response time than any of our competitors. Roof damage caused by thunderstorms is a major problem for homeowners, here are some tips to prevent roof damage to your home:

  • Trim trees and remove dead branches so they won’t damage your home if they fall because of wind.
  • Clear gutters and downspouts of debris. As the leaves fall, make sure they aren’t building up in the gutters.
  • Check for any roof damage. Pay attention to surface bubbles and areas with missing gravel on flat roofs or missing or damaged shingles or tiles on sloped roofs.
  • Check the flashing on the roof to make sure it’s in good condition to help prevent water from seeping through.
  • If your roof needs replacing, consider impact-resistant roofing materials, especially if you live in an area where hail storms are common.

Call your local SERVPRO storm response team, in Jackson, at 601-353-2286 for all your storm remediation needs!

Hurricane Harvey Damage

Storm Damage Hurricane Harvey Damage Drywall removal due to water damage from Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas

SERVPRO knows how important it is to remove contaminated drywall quickly before microbial growth begins to grow. Hurricane flood waters can carry lots of bacteria and filth which can cause microbial growth to set in unless properly taken care of. Most hurricane storm waters are often considered to be at least a category 2 water damage which carries gray water. As you can see in this image, trained technicians removed affected drywall and isolated the unsanitary material which also helps the drying process. SERVPRO ensures that homeowners are well taken care of by demolition and removal of infected materials and preventing microbial growth buildup through antimicrobial application. This specific incident was dealt with timely service and a professional courteous attitude. Thanks to this customer for giving us a positive review and allowing us to help her in her time of need.

Cutting Out Drywall

Storm Damage Cutting Out Drywall This picture shows how drywall has to be removed when it is saturated and not drying out quickly enough.

Water damage to homes during hurricanes are unavoidable, unfortunate situations. SERVPRO was able to service a victim of a water loss due to a hurricane recently. As seen in the picture, we removed parts of drywall on the walls as part of the drying process. Unless taken care of promptly, once water has saturated materials it is likely that microbial growth will occur. In this instance, the drywall was not drying quickly enough to prevent the microbial growth. We removed parts of the drywall in areas that could not be restored in order to salvage the rest of the drywall. The owner commented on the technicians who responding, saying that they were, "Professional and polite." SERVPRO has backing of a nation-wide corporation to insure that each franchise has the resources to get the job done right.

Microbial Growth Removal

Mold Remediation Microbial Growth Removal This image shows how devastating microbial growth can be to a structure.

In this image, the home was infested with microbial growth from water damage that was not dealt with properly in the past. SERVPRO's professional demolition team removed all the affected materials and applied antimicrobial treatment to prevent any possible reoccurring microbial growth. It is important to always treat water damage in a professional manner using the latest moisture reading equipment to ensure structure materials have dried properly. If materials are not dried within seventy-two hours microbial growth has most likely occurred. Dwelling in a structure with high concentrations of microbial growth can possibly be detrimental to a person's health with a possibility of causing nasal and throat irritation, as well as eye and skin irritation. Microbial build up can also intensify allergies in homeowners and pets. SERVPRO is highly trained in microbial growth remediation.
