June starts the hurricane season in Boca Raton. As each storm passes through, it can leave a wide range of damage to our area. It can range from tearing off a few roof tiles or knocking down a fence to the destruction of a home.
When storm damage strikes a Boca Raton home from one of these hurricane related events, owners need a fast, full-service response. Express Emergency Services guarantees a 1-hour, initial response to every weather incident, seven-days-a-week. Our agency is certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to perform every task needed to clean-up a home and restore it to its pre-hurricane condition.
Since this is storm damage, many homes become exposed to the outside. In these cases, Express crews first take steps to secure the residence. They board up broken windows and doors and then use plywood sheets and specially designed tarps to seal off a damaged roof and wall. This action prevents further damage from the weather, animal intrusions, and reduces the risk of trespassing and vandalism.
As crew members complete securing the home, other Express Emergency Services specialists remove water and property. They use pumps and smaller, extraction devices to draw water from inside the home to reduce further water damage and begin the drying process.
Stormwater contains soil and everything else the wind pulled in with it. Because of this, more property, like carpets and upholstered furniture, require immediate disposal after removing the water. Restorable personal property needs stronger cleaners with an anti-bacterial agent to eliminate the health risk to residents.
The incredible amounts of water also increase the risk of inert mold spores expanding and growing throughout the home. To reduce that risk, crew members spray every possible source of the mold with an anti-bacterial spray.
After restoring the interior, our licensed builders repair and replace the damaged walls and the roof. Carpenters and masons can rebuild everything from a new garage to installing a new roof where the hurricane completely exposed the attic and crawlspaces.
At Express Emergency Services, our goal in Boca Raton is to restore every home to its original state after a disaster. Regardless of the amount of damage, call our office today at 561-513-5977 to schedule a service call and get the restoration process started.
