At PuroClean, we provide board-up services to your home or business after a disaster strikes. Sometimes after a bad storm or a fire, the windows or doors of the home can be broken or shattered. This leaves the inside of the building exposed to the outside world. It also creates a safety issue. No one wants vandalism or a robbery to occur after their home or business is already damaged from a storm or a fire!
In addition, sometimes the roof can be damaged and need boarding up as well. This will prevent rain and debris from getting into the building. At PuroClean, we not only restore your home after fire or storm damage, but we will also board up all the windows in the meantime to keep your property safe. The safety of your home and property is our primary concern. We are on call 24/7 and will make it out to your property within 60 minutes of your call.
What to Do After a Damaging Storm or Fire
After a storm or fire damages your home or business, you might feel frozen in dread. Many questions can run through your mind, like: how much is damaged? Will I ever be able to live in my home again? When will my business be able to open? Did I lose all my sentimental items? How much will restoration cost?
The first thing to do after a damaging storm or fire is to make sure that everyone in the building is safe and sound. Once you know everyone is safe, call us immediately. We are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. When we arrive, we will inspect your property and board up any broken windows, doors, or the roof. The last thing you need after a major storm or fire is theft, vandalism, or further property damage.
Why Do I Need a Board-Up?
If your home or business has broken windows, doors, or roof, you must get them boarded up as soon as possible. Broken windows and doors allow the outside world to come inside. This leads to the possibility of vandalism or robbery. If the roof is damaged, rainwater and other debris can potentially get into the building and cause further damage. At PuroClean, we will begin the board-up process shortly after we arrive at the property. While you wait for us to arrive, stay close to your property to make sure it stays safe. Luckily, we arrive within 60 minutes of your call, so there is a low chance that something would happen to your property in that short amount of time.
Once we arrive at the property, we’ll carefully inspect for any areas where there may be broken windows or doors. Once we find them, we board them up to secure the area. This prevents people or animals from getting inside the building. It ensures that no one will be breaking in to rob you or vandalize the inside of your property. Boarding up is often the first step in the restoration process, as it is crucial that your property is safe and secure.
