Entering Your Home After a Storm, Hurricane, or Tornado

Entering your home or business after severe storm damage can be risky… roofs can collapse, glass from shattered windows will be on surfaces and floors.  Cleaning up after major storm damage can mean facing: contaminated water, animals and insects, splintered wood and sagging ceilings. It is best to let the professionals who are trained and certified to work in these storm damage environments handle the damage restoration. However, according to the American Red Cross, if you absolutely must enter your home or business, be sure to wear:

  • Long pants
  • Long sleeved shirt
  • Sturdy shoes or boots (no tennis shoes or flip flops)
  • Work gloves
  • Eye protection
  • Disposable masks
  • Hard hats

Whether it’s for your home or for your business, for more information on storm damage restoration from SERVPRO of Flower Mound / Lewisville, click HERE.
