What to Do For Your Cutler Bay Home After Hurricane Damage

A tropical storm must have winds of at least 74 mph to be considered a hurricane and, unfortunately, storms of that magnitude can cause considerable water damage to your Cutler Bay home. As the categories of a hurricane go up, the winds increase exponentially, meaning a Cat 2 packs ten times the power of a Cat 1.presenting a severe danger to any structure in the way of the storm. A hurricane could storm through the Atlantic coast of Florida and flood your home with several feet of water.  

Thankfully, using SERVPRO's Emergency READY Profile Plan (ERP) application can make calling for professional Cutler Bay hurricane damage remediation services to your home easy. At the click of a button, you could submit a restoration claim to our headquarters. After receiving your request, we do our best to arrive at your property as soon as possible, depending on the conditions of the surrounding area after the hurricane. Considering the environment, fallen trees may need to be moved, or roads could be flooded.

However, once our team of Institution of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration-Certified (IICRC) technicians can arrive at your home, they can immediately get to work. Because of the ERP app, we were able to create a water-extraction plan on the way to your property, since we had the critical information you had entered into the app about your home previously.

Once inside of your home, SERVPRO can begin to extract the excess water flooding the base level of your home immediately. We can use powerful truck-mounted wet/dry vacuums and extractors to remove the significant volume of water from your home. Our team may need to do anything from removing trees from the immediate area around your property, or bring destroyed furnishing to the side of the curb for municipal pickup. Furthermore, we may need to dispose of damaged carpeting or make significant flood cuts inside of each room, to isolate the upstairs area from contamination. We can always work with your insurance adjuster to help you make a claim for your home, its repairs, and your belongings.

Once the damaged materials have been removed, our SERVPRO water damage restoration technicians (WRT) can begin to set up drying equipment in the affected rooms. It is necessary to ensure the structure of your home is dry before rebuilding. Our techs can use devices such as dehumidifiers, heaters, flood drying mats, and air movers to create an environment ideal for evaporation. Once finished, and your home has been adequately dried, we can put you in touch with a contractor who can rebuild the demolished sections of your home.

If a hurricane damages your home, never fail to get help immediately. Communicate with SERVPRO of Cutler Bay by phoning (305) 278-8484. Our goal is always to leave your home feeling, "Like it never even happened."
