Mitigating Against Further Property Damages after a Wind Storm in Oxnard

Your property can sustain damages from exposure to violent winds of up to 60mph. At this speed, uprooting trees, and considerable damages can occur to roof tiles, windows and other fixtures in your home. Once winds settled down, you may need to seek professional assistance to get your property back to the way it was before. We offer local technicians, on call for residents in need.

The level of permanent damage sustained to your property during a wind storm in Oxnard depends on how quickly you act to repair the situation. There is a knock on effect whereby structural openings, caused by the storm, then allow in excess water or compromise the security of your home. SERVPRO offers a 24-hour call line for our residents with trained technicians ready to help you in a storm scenario.

Once we have arrived on site, we can begin to mitigate further losses. In a severe storm, it is not uncommon for third-party contractors to be needed to remodel or repair roofs, windows, and other areas. Our job is to prepare the site as a safe workspace for these contractors. That could be by boarding up openings, removing debris or restoring power to the property.

We can also carry out essential restoration work before remodeling begins. SERVPRO technicians are trained to spot things that may cause permanent damage if not repaired immediately. Pooling water, for example, can become absorbed into your floor causing buckling or mold growth. We can work to prevent that using extractors, pumps, and dehumidifiers to mitigate the loss.

Personal contents like furniture or ornaments may also sustain damages while work is carried out on your home. We can pack these out to an external facility and create an itemized list to be passed along to your insurer. Finally, SERVPRO can thoroughly deodorize the affected area using thermal foggers to remove any unpleasant odors that may occur from water or mold damages.

Our emergency restoration team could help prevent permanent damages to your home, contact SERVPRO of Oxnard at (805) 984-2347.
