Winter Worries: Extreme Weather

Common Home Insurance Claims Seen During Extreme Weather

The winter months, bringing snow and ice, can be fraught with threats of damage to your home.  From frozen pipes to a hail storm, extreme weather can take its toll leaving behind damage that may require filing a homeowner’s insurance claim.  While you can prepare your home for the winter, in some cases winter damage is inevitable. 

The following are the most common areas of damage to the home seen during extreme winter weather.

Storm Damage Mitigation – Berwick, Maine

You can’t prevent a storm from occurring, but you can be proactive in protecting your home or office from major storm damage. Know the risk that your city and town have, and take all necessary precautions in protecting your home, office, and business from major damage. Taking the right precautions may minimize the pain of the recovery and lessen the need for extensive storm damage mitigation.

Flood Damage Repairs - Kennebunkport, ME

Flood Damage Repairs – Kennebunkport, ME

A business chain in Kennebunkport, ME is preparing for a summer storm.  The business owners expect that flooding may occur and they want to take precautionary measures to prevent damage. New England storms can be dangerous, especially when they cause storm surge.  Storm surge is when the sea level rises due to low pressure, high winds, and strong waves created from hurricane activity.  Previously, a storm surge led to flooding in Kennebunkport, ME, causing many homes and businesses to look for flood damage repairs.  Now a second storm is anticipated, and residents are taking precautionary measures.

Textiles and Soft Contents Restored After a Fire or Flood

Some of the items that are dearest to us can be the most challenging losses after a fire or flood.  These may include sentimental items of clothing, blankets, purses or a child’s stuffed animal.  Textiles and soft contents like these present a unique challenge during the restoration process.  They can hold dirt and grime from the disaster, while also becoming a breeding ground for bacteria.  A simple wash of these items will do little to get the item deep-cleaned, eliminating any concerns over lingering bacteria.  Instead these soft contents should be specially cleaned and restored by a professional like Soil-Away.

Prevent Property Damage During Hurricane Season

Prevent Property Damage During Hurricane Season

Hurricane season, which runs from the first of June through the end of November, is well underway.  In New England the peak season for hurricanes is during the month of September.  From storm damage as a result of high winds to rising water levels and coastal surges, it isn’t unusual to experience property damage from hurricanes this time of year.  Those living on the coasts are particularly vulnerable to damage from a hurricane.  However, everyone should take some necessary precautions when one of these powerful storms is passing through.

Disaster Planning

Make a Plan, Disaster Planning for Your Business

New England is far from immune to natural disaster.  From winter storms to flooding and hurricanes, it is important that you have a disaster plan in place to protect your business from this type of uncontrollable inclement weather.  A business struck by a natural disaster that is unprepared can be devastated, even beyond the point of recovery.

Flood Damage Repair Contractor

What to Look for in a Flood Damage Repair Contractor

When a flood has damaged your home or business, time is of the essence.  It is important that the contractor you choose responds immediately to begin the restoration process.  The company should be certified, carry adequate insurance and have the necessary training and experience to address the situation quickly.  An experienced restoration company can help you to navigate the process of filing an insurance claim as well.
