Storms, Winds, Tree Limbs in Your Orland Park Home

8/13/2020 (Permalink)

Multiple tornadoes came through our area this past week. High winds sent tree branches everywhere and days later a lot of homeowners are still cleaning up their yards and tarping their roofs from the damage. 

SERVPRO of Orland Park can help. We can inspect the damage and secure the structure by boarding up your window or protecting it with plastic sheeting. The techs can also check for additional breaches to the property such as a hole in the roof or a broken door and secure them as they did with the window. Securing your home helps prevent water from flowing into the house. Plus, it can protect against wildlife or unwanted visitors from entering the structure.

Next, our SERVPRO team can remove all excess water from the residence. This step helps to reduce further damages to your home. Quick water removal can also prevent wood rot and mold growth. When extracting water, the techs may employ truck-mounted, or portable extractors or commercial grade pumps to eliminate the water fast. The level of water inside the house helps determine what type of equipment the crew may utilize for the job.

Stormwater can also cause damage to the interior walls, floor tile, and ceilings.  If this happens, our skilled technicians may have to remove various wet materials such as drywall or insulation. If the job requires further construction though we can do substantial rebuilds, our techs can assist you in getting in touch with a qualified contractor. Since flood water is contaminated, our crew must discard all wet carpeting and padding as well as any furnishings or contents that come in contact with the water. During the drying process, the team may employ air movers and industrial axial fans to dry the affected areas thoroughly. The crew can also use dehumidifiers to eliminate moisture from inside the structure.

SERVPRO of Orland Park can restore your property to its preloss condition when possible.  Contact us today (708) 532-3377.
