You can rely on the professionals at SERVPRO when storms cause damage to your home.

SERVPRO’s Storm Damage Restoration Process

When heavy summer rainstorms have been passing through the area of Miramar Beach, several problems can arise. Water damage from these storms comes in various forms, including wet ceilings, which are quite difficult to dry out. Most of them are due to storm damage and subsequent roof damage from storms.

When you have spotted water damage to your ceiling after storms have passed through your area, you need to take immediate action to prevent further damage being done to your Miramar Beach home. Calling SERVPRO is the right thing to do. Our highly trained technicians inspect the damage to find the underlying problem. Once we have found the specific water source, we create a plan for drying out your home that targets the water problem, and then we start the mitigation process.

Some problems encountered during this process include saturation to the insulation in the ceiling and mold growth. It is crucial to dry your ceiling out as soon as possible since the weight of the wet insulation is quite heavy if it is entirely saturated. The wet insulation must be removed. Our staff designs a temporary ceiling once the wet material such as sheetrock and insulation is taken out.

SERVPRO then draws up a drying plan which includes a temporary ceiling and walls, plus a drying chamber to save any salvageable materials in the areas affected. We place air movers and dehumidifiers in the drying chamber to enhance the drying process. Once the equipment is placed, we monitor the moisture using hydrometers and meters to find hidden moisture and record these results with moisture logs so the equipment can be adjusted for optimal drying. After the goals for drying are met, we then pull the equipment out so construction can be done to return your home to its preloss condition.

During the mitigation and cleanup process, cabinets which are attached and built-in can be affected. We see this most commonly in bathrooms and kitchens. Other areas include bookcases, hutches, and window seats. They can all be salvaged if we dry them completely and quickly.

SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties are the ones to trust when heavy storms have caused water damage to your ceiling. We work fast with industrial tools to dry your home back out in the areas of Seagrove Beach, Miramar Beach, and Santa Rosa Beach, so give us a call whenever you need us at (850) 267-0746.
