When a bad storm is heading your way, it can certainly pay off to be proactive. VIP Restoration offers protective measures like board up and tarping services to protect your property from severe weather. Boarding up your windows and other vulnerable access points like sliding glass doors can save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in the long run. Proactive measures like boarding up your property before a bad storm hits—especially if the property in question is vacant or particularly vulnerable—can make a real and measurable difference in the amount of damage dealt by Mother Nature. Of course, not all storm damage is predictable beforehand. That’s why VIP Restoration offers both emergency 24 hour storm damage restoration services, as well as board up and tarping services after the fact. Storms most often damage a structure at its most vulnerable areas: roofing, windows, and doorways. If a storm has come through and damaged your home or business, the best thing you can do is call VIP Restoration and let us re-seal your property against the elements. VIP Restoration offers professional tarping services in order to seal a damaged roof or other areas of your structure against ongoing damage caused by water, high winds, and other destructive elements. By sealing your property until proper repairs can be implemented, you will undoubtedly save in progressive water damage and restoration work. If your home or business has been damaged by a storm or other severe weather event, don’t hesitate to call VIP Restoration right away, and save a bundle!
Water is one of the most common elements that causes progressive harm to a storm-damaged home or business. Because water seeps and spreads, the damage is difficult to contain to a single area. The water caused by storm damage can easily get into areas that are not easily accessible without special equipment, and an understanding of how internal structures work. When water seeps unseen into the spaces below the floorboards, between walls, into attics, crawlspaces, and basements, it can cause huge problems that are not immediately apparent. For example, water that seeps between the walls can be wicked up into your insulation, saturating it and causing a slow evaporation that raises the humidity levels between your walls. This raised humidity becomes a playground for mold, mildew, rot, and bacteria, weakening the structure of your home and causing damage that will manifest over time as bubbling plaster, swollen drywall, soggy support structures, and burgeoning mold colonies. Mold, mildew, and bacteria can become an issue in as little as 48 hours after saturation occurs. This is not a large window of time when you consider that in order to avoid permanent damage and mold infestation, the affected area needs to be completely dried out! Because of this, it is vital to deal with storm damage as quickly as possible following the severe weather event. When you call the expert team at VIP Restoration, you know you’re getting the best storm and water damage restoration team available.
A botched dry-out job is sometimes worse than making no attempt because you’ve already spent time and money on trying to fix a hopeless situation on your own. It makes sense to invest in the future of your valuable items, inventory, and possessions. Call or email the experts at VIP Restoration as quickly as possible following any incident of storm damage that involves water. We are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and can bring our state of the art equipment to your property in minutes to begin the restoration process immediately!
