College Park MD Storm Damage Repair and Cleanup
Superstorm Sandy ravaged the east coast in October of 2012 and College Park, Maryland, while not suffering as much damage as some other areas, certainly saw her share. Downed trees, flooding and lack of power left many people homeless and wondering where to begin when going about picking up the pieces. Even though storms like Hurricane Sandy aren’t so common, Maryland definitely sees its share of adverse weather. Although most storms aren’t as widespread as Sandy, homeowners can still feel the sting every time there is a bad storm in the area.
Damage from storms can be very devastating. We know this because we have dealt with restoring homes due to storm damage for over 30 years. We all know that fallen trees, broken windows, and flooding needs to be taken care of promptly. But from those things can stem other problems that may not be so blatantly obvious. It can cause plumbing and even electrical issues. Also, if the storm has caused any flooding in your home, it is best to call a professional. Doing it yourself may lead to more damage, and even possible growth of mold and mildew.
We know that during the restoration process the last thing you want to think about is spending money. That is why we help you with the insurance, and the claim. We want you to be as stress – free as possible. First, keep a copy of your policy in something fireproof and waterproof in your home. Keep the original in a safe deposit box in your bank. It is always a good idea to leave an extra copy with a close relative, because you never know what can happen with storms. Something may happen to where you can’t get to the copy. It is also a good idea to take photographs of the damage, and keep those in a waterproof or fireproof box as well. Keeping both is best in case either gets damaged. Keeping receipts for the items is also recommended by your insurance company, as well as appraisals for things like valuable family heirlooms.
