Tropical Storm Damage
Tropical storms or tropical cyclones are low pressure systems that develop over tropical waters with closed wind circulation and a well-defined center, or “eye.” While hurricanes tend to produce more wind and flooding, tropical storms can still cause severe damage to your home. Your home may experience wind, rain, mud, debris damage, and long-term mold damage.
Water, wind, and damage from fallen poles, electrical wiring, or debris are going to be the biggest areas of concern for your home during a tropical storm. It’s important to have a safety plan in place when tropical storms are about to hit your area, and understand how to secure your house, and where to go if evacuation is necessary.
A tropical storm turns into a hurricane once wind speeds reach 74mph. Because these storms are so powerful, the damages to homes and businesses will most likely be intense. Some hurricane damage that could impact your home includes water damage or flooding from heavy rains, powerful winds that can destroy walls and cause damage to your property’s structure, and storm surges that can quickly engulf your home if it’s near a coastal region.
Not all hurricanes are created equal though. In the U.S., Hurricane Harvey is recognized as one of the worst hurricanes of all time. It caused unprecedented damage to Houston, Corpus Christi, and Galveston with some areas of Houston seeing over 50 inches of rain. Clearly, the threat of hurricane damage to homes is a top priority for many who live in areas prone to hurricanes.
ServiceMaster Restore is there to help homeowners after disasters strike. If you’ve suffered from severe hurricane damage that led to structural issues, we are there to help you get your home back in order, while alleviating some of your stress after going through a traumatic storm.
