In Idaho, we are susceptible to damaging winds, heavy ice/snow storms, flooding, lightening strikes, wildfire, mudslides, and hail storms. When these natural calamities occur, they can destroy property and distract us from the way we live in a blink of an eye. However, the most valuable thing is your life and that of your family. Here are some steps to help you ensure your loved ones are safe after a storm and to clean up the mess and go back to your normal life.
Listen to the Media Updates before Taking Any Move
As much as it may be tempting to know what is happening outside, it is important to listen to the radio or any other media during severe weather advisories to stay informed of the situation outside.
The media helps in highlighting the areas that have suffered serious damage. They also announce when it’s safe to leave the house and the severe storm advisory is over.
In the house, make sure you have a fire extinguisher near because fire may come up as a result of mix up of wires.
Observe Carefulness When Cleaning Up the Mess
After you’re sure it is safe to leave the house, it is important that you clean up the mess to know the extent of the damage. This will also give you ample time to cover the rooftops if they have formed any leakages to avoid further damage. Be sure to avoid being near broken tree limbs as they may fall on you or a vehicle.
Remove items in your house that have been damaged by water to help prevent mold.
Find a Professional Restoration Service
After dealing with the basic damages, consult with your insurance company to understand your policy. Then, find an expert in restoration services, such as Complete Restoration Services, to solve all the damages caused by the storm.
