Did you know that storm water and flood water are considered unclean sources of water? That means it's not safe or advisable to attempt to dry out your property on your own. Water from storms or floods will inevitably contain microbes and bacteria that will cause mold spores to grow within 24-48 hours if left to sit on any organic surface like drywall, flooring, or even the legs of your furniture. The storm damage water experts at Steele Services know the precautions to take and have the right equipment to safely remove the water or moisture and get you back to dry.
Water Damage From a Storm
Heavy Rain and Hail: Heavy rain, hail-damaged roofs and windows, and even fallen trees can create opportunities for water to penetrate into the home. Soon, your carpets will become water-logged, and drywall and ceilings will sag under the weight of the moisture. We'll assess the extent of the damage and begin the dryout process immediately.
Equipment/System Malfunctions: Sump pumps or foundation drainage systems are essential for any Tennessee home to deal with rainwater. When they work right, we don't give them a second though. Then they breakdown or malfunction, however, that's when calling Steele Services is necessary to remove the water and moisture that built up during the downtime. We will dry out your basement or crawl space quickly to prevent structural damage.
Storm Damage Insurance Claims: While most policies require a special "rider" for floods, nearly all homeowner insurance policies will cover water damage caused by storms. We will work with your insurance company to make sure the necessary cleanup and subsequent repairs and reconstruction are covered.
