10/19/2020 (Permalink)

Storm Damage House was damaged by the storm

On March 2 and 3, 25 people were killed in tornadoes in central Tennessee, including the city of Nashville. Tornado deaths in 2020 are the highest since 2011 when 553 people were killed in 1,691 tornadoes. Of course, tornadoes are not the only type of wind damage that homeowners need to be on the lookout for. Local homeowners also need to understand that if trees or their home’s infrastructure are not taken care of, it could take much less than gale-force winds to cause serious damage. Let’s learn how you can protect your property from wind storms and why you need a trustworthy team like SERVPRO of Wilson County on your side if you’re in need of wind damage restoration solutions.

Fixing What’s Broken

If you live in an area that is prone to consistently having high winds, then it’s best to be proactive and fix things like loose fence boards or peeling roof shingles. Catching these simple repairs early and getting them fixed as soon as you see them can prevent even further, more costly damage in the event of a windstorm.

Examine Trees and Shrubs

High winds and loose branches are a bad combination. Keeping trees and shrubs well-manicured and cutting down dead trees that have succumbed to disease or trunk rot is important for keeping your home safe during a wind storm. Before a storm hits, trim any damaged branches yourself or via a professional if any of the branches are touching electrical cables which could put you at risk for electric shock.

After a Windstorm

Take some time to inspect your house and property for debris and damage. If your building smells of gas, stay outside. Make sure to always keep away from downed power lines. If you’re in need of Storm Damage in Wilson County it’s important to contact the team at SERVPRO at (615) 449-5000 to come out to your property and assess the situation.

SERVPRO of Wilson County works to remove any water damage that is present and completely dry the area quickly. This will help to diminish the risk of further property damage to homeowners above and beyond the scope of any wind damage.
