What Are Common Forms of Tropical Storm Damage?

Depending on what type of storm hit and how severe it was, there are various types of tropical storm damage you may be dealing with—typically related to heavy winds, flying debris, and excess water. Common forms of tropical storm damage include:

  • Flooding
  • Mold growth
  • Sewage backup
  • Roof damage
  • Damage to interior walls, flooring, and furniture
  • Large amounts of debris
  • And more

These are just some common forms of tropical storm damage, but you could be facing a number of other problems as well—and the methods of treatment depend on the nature of the issue. If you have roof damage, for instance, you’ll need to tarp this area whereas if you have excess water, you’ll need to remove damaged furniture and undergo water extraction.

Tropical Storm & Hurricane Cleanup

As soon as the storm has passed it’s important to begin hurricane cleanup immediately. Call a professional restoration company as soon as possible and be sure to avoid any unstable power lines while you wait for us to arrive.

Of course the type of tropical storm damage treatment we give you depends on what type of damage you have. However, the process usually consists of the following steps, with some variation:

  • Assess the extent of any damage
  • Provide water extraction
  • Set up fans and dehumidifiers for ventilation
  • Remove any damaged materials and furniture
  • Tarp and board up the roof area (for those with wind damage)
  • Provide structural drying
  • Remove any growing mold
  • Thoroughly clean and disinfect damaged areas
