Florida residents are no strangers to severe storms. Heavy rains, excessive flooding, and strong winds can all be detrimental to your home and business, and the surrounding properties. After a severe storm, business owners have to figure out their next steps as they plan on restoring operations. Thankfully, Maven Construction Group has you covered through our North Central Florida restoration services, and we have designed several strategies for local businesses to re-establish functionality after a large storm.
Once a storm has passed through, it’s important that businesses get back up and running promptly, returning business flow and income to normalcy. Before you reopen, it’s important to do a few key things once you return to your storefront:
While it may seem like a good idea to dive right in and begin repairs yourself, safety should always be a top priority. Understand that a disaster restoration service may be needed to fully diagnose and tackle severe storm damage.
While most signs of damage will be apparent — broken glass, debris on the roof, and flooding are all very noticeable and easy to address — some serious issues could be lurking out of sight. Our trusted and experienced professionals can help address any larger issues that may have resulted from the storm and provide solutions, such as mold remediation, roof repair, or water extraction.
With storms come heavy rain, and if any part of your building’s structure failed during the storm, it’s likely that water found its way inside. Through even the smallest cracks and holes, water can invade roofing, foundations, walls, and various other portions of your establishment. If you begin to notice buckling in the floors, lingering odors, water spots, or paint begins to bubble or blister, our water damage restoration process may be right for you. Fear you may have mildew in your building from the storm? Fret not, for we offer mold removal too.
If structural damage occurs to your storefront, wires may have become exposed and could potentially lead to a fire if not addressed. Flood waters can find their way into electrical outlets, and restoring power to wet areas can cause sparks, damaged equipment, or even a fire. If a fire occurs during a storm, call Maven Construction Group for help with fire restoration. We can board-up any holes, remove smoke odors, and begin reconstruction right away.
Common signs of wind damage include shingles that have peeled back or are missing; broken glass or other debris on the roof; dents or holes in the exterior of your building; and even shattered windows. If your business has suffered damage from storm winds or blowing debris, we’ve got you covered. Whether it be tree removal, roof repair, interior and exterior clean-up, or even complete reconstruction, Maven Construction Group has the solutions.
At Maven Construction Group, we understand the stress it can bring when disaster strikes and your business has to close for repairs. The loss of income, the unfamiliarity of the repair process, and seeing the business you worked hard for being in a state of disarray can be disheartening. That’s why at Maven Construction Group we provide 24/7 emergency services, so we can be there for you in a pinch. We even self-fund restoration projects, meaning we can start working before an insurance payout, and you can get back to running your business.
