Tornado damage is devastating. The high winds and strong rains that accompany most tornadoes and severe storms are unpredictable, and the tornado that touched down this past weekend in Petersburg and Hampton, Virginia was no exception. Fortunately, none of the families impacted by the three mile long path of the tornado were seriously harmed. However, these families and families impacted by the storms throughout Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. now have the task of finding emergency restoration services for their homes and properties.
Emergency Restoration Services in Virginia for Storm Damage
Those who now need emergency restoration services in Virginia as a result of the storm must take quick action. The high winds that accompanied this weekend’s storms caused damage to the exteriors of many homes and properties. In severe cases this moves the framing of the home and causes the walls to shift, and combined with exterior damage, this can allow rainwater to collect inside the building. This rainwater collection is dangerous not only because it causes water damage, but it can also be a breeding ground for mold. A common action that homeowners take after such damage is to cover the missing siding or roofing with tarps. This will help further water from entering the building, but the heat reflected underneath the tarp can actually encourage mold growth. What’s more, a tarp that is incorrectly used can actually prevent water that is already inside from drying, making water damage worse.
Many homeowners in the Virginia counties of Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William will need two types of emergency restoration services: water damage repair and mold remediation and removal. The first step property owners should take is to call their insurance company to make them aware of the damage. Next, property owners should call a certified emergency restoration company like Tri State Restorations.
