After the Summer storm, check your home or building of damage. Make sure all electricity and outlets are working. Be aware if there is water damage by sinks pipes or toilets. There could be many possible damages after a storm. Below are a few of the types to look for:

Lightning Damage

If the home is hit by lightning during a storm it can burn through roofs, shingles, or gutters from the building and even tear into attics. Electrical damage can happen if appliances such as refrigerators were plugged into an outlet during the storm.

Wind Damage

Roof damage is possible with heavy winds or even worse a missing roof. Wind damage is seen the most when it comes to the after effects of storm damage. High winds can be anywhere from 50-60 mph and can ruin homes. Roof damage can lead to a roof leak which leads to bigger problems… water damage.

Flood Damage can be Typically the water that floods into your home is not clean. The water has sediment that will contaminate whatever touches your home. Water damage is not an easy task to clean on your own. It should be cleaned up with more than just a mop to make sure there is no left over residue that could grow mold.
