What to do when a Tornado causes water damage to your Dallas home
Cleaning Up Water Damage in Your Dallas Home In DFW, tornadoes are not strangers to us, and there is nothing quite as horrific as the damage left by one, if you do end up being a victim. Wind and flying debris, while it is what most of us think about with a tornado, they can also bring a very large amount of water into your home as well. The water in the home can sometimes be more damaging than the wind. The water brought in by the rain, really determines how much damage there is in your home. It is always best to have our professionals at SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas do an assessment of your home, because often there is damage that an untrained eye will not see. At SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas, we are trained and ready to get you taken care of quickly and safely. Some steps to take before we arrive that will help you, are as follows: - Make sure to turn off your electricity first, you want to avoid any electrical shocks or accidents.- Make us aware of any hazards that might be present (i.e. broken glass, or sharp objest like exposed nails, or even water damage to the sub-flooring that may make the structure unsafe)- Make a list for your insurance company of anything that you know is damaged already, and SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas can then do a list of salvageable and non-salvageable items as well for you and your insurance company. SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas is certified and qualified for any circumstance you may face. For instance, if water entered in and you notice one wall is wet, there is a good chance that the water was not confined to just that one area; so our IICRC certified techs are trained and knowledgeable of the "hidden damages" that are not seen with the naked eye. Once we have cleaned up the debris and dried out the flooring and walls, a full extent of the damages will be determined and the rebuild can begin. DFW does get a few tornadoes each year, when it happens, you want to call us at SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas at 214-463-5880 to take care of your mitigation needs. "Like it never even happened."
