Avoid Costly Damage during Hurricane and Storm Season

Written by chrischambers on . Posted in , , .

For many homeowners just the words “Hurricane Season” can send them into a panic, and understandably so. In recent years we have seen, and many have experienced, the damage that a hurricane or powerful storm can do to a home. However, there are some steps you can take to protect your home during this tumultuous season.

Understanding your insurance

If you are living in a vulnerable part of the country for hurricanes, you will want to make sure that your homeowner’s insurance covers you for any damage as a result of a storm or hurricane. Familiarize yourself with the deductible in the event of a loss. Insurance carriers offer a wide range of coverage and deductibles when it comes to flood insurance. It may be wise to shop around to find the right plan for you.

Roof inspection

During a hurricane or powerful storm one of the most susceptible parts of your home is the roof. A qualified roofing contractor can perform a roof inspection looking for any weak areas that may be in need of repair.

Basement monitoring

Flooding in the basement of a home is a big concern during the storm season. This doesn’t mean you have to clear out the entire basement. Water monitoring systems are available that will remotely send an alert as soon as a change in water level is detected. This can help you to head off any problems before they cause significant damage to your home and property.

Safe storage

If your home is prone to flooding during strong storms you will want to keep your most treasured possessions, family heirlooms, photographs, etc. in a safe and dry location. Sealing items in zip-locked waterproof bags or watertight containers can mean the difference if your home is hit by a hurricane or tropical storm, ensuring that these possessions remain out of harm’s way.
Taking these extra steps to protect your home and belongings can go a long way in keeping your home safe in the event of a weather emergency. If your home has been struck by a storm and has sustained water or fire damage, call the property damage restoration experts at Soil-Away Cleaning and Restoration (603-641-6555).

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
