Storm Damage Cleanup — Exeter, NH 03833

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , , .

Winter storms, floods, hurricanes; all types of natural disasters can have a crippling effect on the inhabitants of a community. Exeter, NH is no exception. Whatever the season; whatever the disaster; you must be prepared. Evacuate if necessary and brace yourself. Once the storm hits, there’s not much you can do. Hopefully, you and your loved ones have made it out with minimal injuries. Now, you must prepare for storm damage cleanup.

Winter storm damage

Winter can bring on some frigid weather which can freeze pipes and cause them to burst. The result can be extensive water damage. Outdoor pipes most likely to freeze can be outdoor hose bibs, swimming pool/hot tub supply lines and water sprinkler lines. Interior pipes in unheated or inadequately heated areas include those in basements, crawl spaces, attics and garages. Make sure to look at these when inspecting your home. Roof damage is also an issue since snow and ice can damage gutters and roofs. Ice dams are a frequent concern in NH and in extreme circumstances the weight of heavy snow can cause a roof to collapse.

Damage from flooding

After a flood, check your home’s exterior to decide what needs the most attention (roof is a must). Make sure to also examine windows, gutters and downspouts. Check for damage to siding that may allow moisture to penetrate into walls. This may lead to rot or mold to form. Inspect the attic for signs of roof leaks. Wet insulation and damp spots on beams are a sure indicator that there’s roof damage or at least a source of water infiltration. Examine walls and ceilings for staining, bubbling in paint or cracking in drywall. This is especially apparent around electrical outlets and light fixtures. Do not hesitate or delay in contacting a storm damage cleanup company if restoration services are needed.

Hurricanes cause property devastation

The worst is over, you and your family have escaped the hurricane with your lives. You’re lucky. Now it’s time for the cleanup. Before doing anything, listen to your local officials for updates and instructions. Do not enter damaged structures until given the green light from local authorities. Wear protective gear; boots, work gloves and long sleeves to protect yourself from debris. Eye protection, dust masks (or even respirators) and helmets are also essential for safety. Look for exposed nails, broken glass and other hazards. Report downed power lines to police and utility company. Do not go near any object that is in contact with downed lines. Always use battery-operated lanterns or flashlights as light sources. Never use candles. Once it’s safe to turn on gas and water services, check appliances for damage. Dispose of perishable food items from the refrigerator.

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.
