The Destructive Reach of Hurricane Dorian

The Destructive Reach of Hurricane Dorian

On September 9, 2019, Hurricane Dorian left a wake of destruction that spanned from the Bahamas to Novia Scotia, Canada. Homes throughout the regions were destroyed due to the high-velocity winds and heavy rainfall. Some individuals in these impacted areas cannot go home again. For those who still have homes, the process of cleaning, restoring, and mitigating further risks could prove costly. 

Starting an Insurance Claim

Property owners can contact their homeowner's insurance carrier to start an insurance claim for hurricane damage. If their property is in a designated flood zone, their mortgage lender would require flood insurance too. A claim through both policies maximizes their coverage for water damage restoration services like MicroTech Solutions offers.

The Complete Home Inspection

The property inspections are preliminary when it comes to hurricane damage. Essentially, the claims adjuster reviews the property before the water restoration services start. The claims adjuster uses information from the inspection and forwards it to the insurer.

The water damage restoration service conducts a preliminary inspection, too. The inspection assists in calculating the cost of restoration services and the contractors provide the insurer with an estimate of all services. The estimate is itemized for full disclosure of all the necessary services. Once the insurer receives and approves the service estimate, the insurer releases the funds to the water damage restoration service. Homeowners who need to review the steps for getting started can visit to learn about setting up services after hurricane damage.

Removing the Water from the Property

Service providers use high-pressured hoses for removing standing water from the property. Next, dehumidifiers are used to draw moisture and water from the walls and ceilings. Technicians test for moisture after these steps for ensuring that all water and moisture are eliminated appropriately. If the property remains damp, more property damage occurs and black mold could develop.

Mildew and Mold Mitigation

Another inspection takes place for any signs of mildew or mold. If mold or mildew are found, the technicians test it and determine the exact species. When removing mold and mildew, the technicians complete steps by following EPA regulations for mold removal. All items that are covered in mold are wrapped in thick plastic sheeting to prevent it from spreading further.

Technicians distribute chemicals throughout the property to kill the mold and mildew. After all harmful substances are eliminated, the technicians start sanitization practices to clean the entire home and eliminate any dangerous substances or bacteria.

Restoring the Property

Most homeowner's insurance plans require the homeowner to follow the same floor plan when scheduling property restoration. The contractors restore the property to its previous condition before the hurricane damage. Building inspectors conduct a final inspection and ensure that the property meets all building codes appropriately.

Hurricane Dorian causes massive damage throughout its path. Some homeowners are still displaced from their homes even today. Those who were able to go home are still picking up the pieces and trying to recover from the devastation. Water restoration services have helped hundreds of families return to a completely restored home. The services are covered under most major homeowner's and flood insurance policies.
