Many winter storms last for days on end and can easily cause major problems for those who are not prepared. […]
What do we do after an unexpected storm? In the Portland Metro Area, we don’t see very many harsh winter storms. Strong winds, lots of rain, sure. But when it comes to ice and snow, it’s infrequent and, unfortunately, when it does, what should you do? We at PuroClean of Hillsboro have some tips to help you be more prepared for an unexpected snow and ice storm that causes damage.
It’s important to look around your home to check for any sort of debris that can potentially cause issues.
After the storm is over, if you aren’t sure if there is damage to your home, there are things you can look for. Any unusual smells coming from closed up rooms or in general?
Much like lists for family emergency contacts, it’s always good to have a list with phone numbers for home emergencies in these unusual scenarios.
These tips can help prevent the panic of what to do as well as help prevent additional damage. If there is a process in place, it will make getting the people you need contacted faster which will lead to quicker turnaround times to make sure that you are back in the pre-loss condition effectively.
Along with water mitigation and storm damage, PuroClean of Hillsboro is equipped to help with so much more. We offer emergency services for damage from fire, smoke, bio-hazard and trauma cleanup, and mold.
