Commercial Flood Damage Can Be Caused By High Winds
Anyone from our area knows that we can often see heavy hitting winds blowing through town. When the wind blows hard, and the gusts get high in speed, an object can become airborne and strike your glass shop, which could cause your business commercial flood damage.
When the wind picks up during a storm, it can blow branches off of trees, dirt, or landscaping rocks to fly into your company's building's windows. Commercial flood damage is often caused by windows breaking due to high winds. Once a hole in your structure occurs, the interior of your glass store can start to retain moisture, and many of your contents and building materials can get wet. The rocks or branches that broke your window could also ruin some of your glass bulk or products.
Once the exterior shell of your structure gets breached, it is wise to call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO of Monroeville/Evergreen/Brewton. We can start mitigating your storm-related issues by first securing your structure. If it continues to rain and your building is exposed to the outdoors, rainwater can keep entering your store and cause your business more problems.
For example, if moisture enters your place of business through a broken window, our SERVPRO technicians can board up and seal the opening with plastic so that no more rainwater can keep getting into your glass shop. We can then take other preventative measures to seal your building from the outdoors, like putting sandbags on each of your lower door seals. If the wind blew something into your roof, then we can temporarily seal it until we can get the problem repaired by a certified roofer.
Once our SERVPRO team secures your building and keeps water from entering, we then begin assessing the situation. We conduct an initial inspection to see what items inside your store we can save and which items must get removed and replaced. In some cases, many of your affected contents and building materials can be saved through our extraction and applied structural drying procedures.
If your commercial property suffers damage as a result of a storm, call SERVPRO of Monroeville/Evergreen/Brewton at (251) 809-1260.
