Why We’re Gulfport’s Storm Damage Resource | SERVPRO® of Biloxi/Ocean Springs/Gulfport

While you can take steps to protect your home from storm damage, the reality is that it’s impossible for anyone living along the Gulf Coast to predict when their house might suffer storm damage. But you can take many steps to lessen the likelihood that your home will be damaged during a hurricane, tropical storm or another severe weather event. Homeowners can take steps to board up windows, tie down or remove certain items that could be projectiles (like patio furniture or grills), and secure loose siding and shingles. It’s also smart to be sure your gutters are regularly cleaned and trees overhanging your home are removed. But even the most diligent homeowners can sometimes be impacted by severe weather—and have to deal with the resulting restoration and cleanup work. If your home is ever affected by extreme weather, the team here at SERVPRO is ready to help you get your home back to its original condition. Want to know why we’re Gulfport’s best choice for restoration? Here’s why: Our team is available 24/7 during emergencies like severe weather.

Fast Facts About Summer Storm Safety | SERVPRO® of Pascagoula

7/16/2020 (Permalink)

lighting striking hillside during storm at night Have you been affected by a storm event? SERVPRO of Pascagoula is available 24/7 and ready to assist you with any storm damage.

Summer storms are a part of long days and warmer weather, but it is important to be aware of the impact they can have. When thunder develops, that means that lightning strikes, high winds and hail are all a possibility, along with the damage these circumstances can cause.

While your best bet is to stay at home to stay safe from a storm, these general tips are things you can keep in mind regardless of where you are to protect yourself.

Staying Safe in the Event of Summer Storms

Know your options for shelter. If severe weather is in the forecast, the best thing to do is stay home and move to an interior room of the house—but if you get caught in bad weather out and about, it’s important to know what to do. If you happen to be driving, your car is actually a safe place to take shelter. Be sure you safely pull to the shoulder, turn the vehicle off and do not touch any metal elements.

Practice electrical safety. If a building is struck by lightning, the electrical charge will rush to the ground as quickly as possible—often through electrical wires in the walls of the home. When this happens, a power surge can be transferred to anything that is plugged into the wall. If you have the time before a storm moves through, unplug everything in the house to prevent this from happening. In case one catches you off-guard, using surge protectors at every outlet is advised.

Avoid direct contact with concrete. It may feel like a concrete structure is the most secure place to be in the event of a storm, but they are still quite vulnerable to lightning. Concrete is often reinforced with steel, so if lightning strikes, it can become a conductor of electricity itself. If you are able, avoid touching any concrete walls or floors while lightning is in the area.

Stay indoors for at least 30 minutes. Because storms can come and go quickly, they often interrupt activities and result in people antsy to get back to what they were doing. However, this can lead to people rushing outside as soon as the skies clear, which can be dangerous. Lightning strikes have been known to occur up to 25 miles from where the storm is located, so it is advised to wait a half-hour after the last clap of thunder before going back out.

If your home sustains damage due to a storm, you can count on us to help. Contact us at any hour to learn more about our storm restoration process.

Service During and Be Safe After

2/5/2020 (Permalink)

Survive DURING

  • If told to evacuate, do so immediately. Do not drive around barricades.
  • If sheltering during high winds, go to a FEMA safe room, ICC 500 storm shelter, or a small, interior, windowless room or hallway on the lowest floor that is not subject to flooding.
  • If trapped in a building by flooding, go to the highest level of the building. Do not climb into a closed attic. You may become trapped by rising flood water.
  • Listen for current emergency information and instructions.
  • Use a generator or other gasoline-powered machinery outdoors ONLY and away from windows.
  • Do not walk, swim, or drive through flood waters. Turn Around. Don’t Drown! Just six inches of fast-moving water can knock you down, and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away.
  • Stay off of bridges over fast-moving water.

Be Safe AFTER

  • Listen to authorities for information and special instructions.
  • Be careful during clean-up. Wear protective clothing and work with someone else.
  • Do not touch electrical equipment if it is wet or if you are standing in water. If it is safe to do so, turn off electricity at the main breaker or fuse box to prevent electric shock.
  • Avoid wading in flood water, which can contain dangerous debris. Underground or downed power lines can also electrically charge the water.
  • Save phone calls for emergencies. Phone systems are often down or busy after a disaster. Use text messages or social media to communicate with family and friends.
  • Document any property damage with photographs. Contact your insurance company for assistance.

  • Clear gutters and downspouts of debris. As the leaves fall, make sure they are not building up in the gutters. 
  • Check for any roof damage. Pay attention to surface bubbles, areas with missing gravel on flat roofs, damaged or missing shingles or tiles on sloped roofs.
  • Check the flashing on the roof to make sure it is in good condition to help prevent water from seeping through.
  • If your rood needs replacing, consider impact-resistant roofing materials, especially if you live in an area where hail storms are common.

Keeping your Family Safe Before and During Flood Damage in Pascagoula

While flood damage in Pascagoula can be easy to deal with on your own, adding a family and household into the mix can significantly complicate matters. Protecting your home and belongings before a major storm or hurricane hits the area should factor into your thought processes as well. The further ahead of a storm you plan for disaster, the more likely you are to make it through without undue troubles.

Keep Safety in Mind

Flood Damage in Pascagoula can pose a significant hazard to the health and safety of you and your family. Do your best to follow public service announcements about incoming storms and any evacuations that they may warrant, as these warnings are not made lightly and failing to follow them can lead to severe consequences. Additionally, you should have a waterproof container full of first aid supplies, flashlights, drinking water, and other survival essentials that you can access in times of need.

Have a Second Place to Stay

Having a place to stay set up before disaster strikes can help you get to a safer position without confusion and time pressure. Relatives who live further inland or in elevated areas may be able to offer refuge. If this option is not available to you, please try to identify towns with hotels that fare better in most storms than your neighborhood.

Stay Away from Floodwaters

Whether you choose to ride out the storm at home or evacuate elsewhere please be aware of the dangers floodwaters pose both to individuals and vehicles. SERVPRO technicians have specialized protective gear before entering any flooded area.

It’s that time of the year. Summer comes with rain. Rain comes with thunder storms and lightning. Lightning is a leading cause of injury and death from weather-related hazards. Although most lightning victims survive, people struck by lightning often report a variety of long-term, debilitating symptoms. Thunderstorms are dangerous storms that include lightning and can:

  • Include powerful winds over 50 MPH;
  • Create hail; and
  • Cause flash flooding and tornadoes.

IF YOU ARE UNDER A THUNDERSTORM WARNING, FIND SAFE SHELTER RIGHT AWAY

  • When thunder roars, go indoors!
  • Move from outdoors into a building or car.

  • Do not use landline phones.

HOW TO STAY SAFE WHEN A THUNDERSTORM THREATENS

Reasons NOT to Drive on a Flooded Street

11/7/2019 (Permalink)

Heavy rainfall, severe storms, melting snow, and other natural events can cause a single flooded street or affect all of  your area. As people try to go about their normal routines when this happens, they are sure to come across several flooded roads. The most important of all travel tips during flooding is not to drive on those roads. Here are just a few of the reasons why to steer clear of streets covered by water.

1. Water Hides Many Disasters

There may be downed power lines, sinkholes, washed out pavement, and other disasters could be lurking below the surface of the waves. Even if there's only an inch or two, your tires could be damaged by debris lying out of sight.

2. It's Hard To Tell How Deep the Water Is

Without obvious clues, it's hard to estimate how deep the water is on a flooded street. This is particularly dangerous at night and on unfamiliar roads. It doesn't take long for you to get into water that is too deep to navigate.

3. Tire Buoyancy Can Float You Into Trouble

Weather-sealing and plenty of air pressure make it possible for your car to float just enough that you can't accurately tell how deep the water is. A tiny bit of buoyancy also removes any chance of friction, so you and your car are at the mercy of the flow of water. It isn't uncommon for cars in this situation to get sucked into drainage systems, rivers, and other bodies of water.

4. Engines Suck Up a Lot of Water

Engines create a powerful vacuum, sucking in air, debris, or water. When you drive on flooded roads, enough water gets sucked up to cause very expensive damages. In addition to this problem, you may find the computer destroyed, carpeting ruined, and wiring systems corroded.

5. Water Damaged Cars Require a Complete Overhaul

Water damage specialists will completely dismantle your car. Each piece of the automobile will be either dried or replaced, treated with chemicals, sealed, and then reassembled.

A flooded street is deceptively dangerous. Don't ever drive on them because of the risks to yourself and your car.

Flood Facts

Floods are one of the most common natural disasters in the US.

http://www.redcross.org/get-help/how-to-prepare-for-emergencies/types-of-emergencies/flood#About

There is always potential for flood damage no matter where you live. According to the American Red Cross floods cause more damage in the United States every year than any other weather related disaster.

The American Red Cross offers these flood safety tips:

-Stay away from floodwaters. If you come up on a flowing stream where water is above your ankles, stop, turn around and go another way. Six inches of swiftly moving water can sweep you off of your feet.

-If you approach a flooded road while driving, turn around and go another way. If you are caught on a flooded road and waters are riding rapidly around you, get out of the car quickly and move to higher ground. Most cars can be swept away by less than two feet of moving water.

-Keep children out of the water. They are curious and often lack judgment about running water or contaminated water. 

A flood/flash flood WATCH means a flood or flash flood is possible.

A flood/flash flood WARNING means flooding or flash flooding is already occurring or will occur soon. TAKE IMMEDIATE PRECAUTIONS!

If a flood occurs and affects you, call SERVPRO of Biloxi, Ocean Springs, & Gulfport.  Even minor floods have potential to cause major damage. We Are Always Here To Help.

Emergency Planning for Storm

9/19/2018 (Permalink)

Emergency Planning

Even with insurance coverage, disasters can shake the foundations of even the best-managed companies. Make a business assessment for the survival of your company. Regardless of the cause of the catastrophe, a company’s very survival often depends on being prepared to responding quickly and efficiently, so a carefully constructed disaster recovery plan is one asset that every business needs. Before any calamity strikes, you should know what tasks will need to be performed to get your company running again and who will be responsible for accomplishing them. While there is no one-size-fits-all recovery plan, every business’ strategy should include some basics. Laying the groundwork by preparing to handle insurance claims, scouting viable options for temporary operations and considering the implications of various financial alternatives before trouble strikes can make the process of recovery much easier. The impacts from hazards can be reduced by investing in mitigation. If there is a potential for significant impacts, then creating a mitigation strategy should be a high priority.

 https://www.ready.gov/sites/default/files/5.2.1.0%20Risk%20Assessment%20Process.png

Insurance Considerations

Depending upon the details of the policy that you have selected for your business, commercial property insurance may cover damage or loss of the insured property, time element losses, loss mitigation costs, and loss adjustment expenses. It may also cover costs for public relations, research and development, and other necessities. When a disaster occurs, it is crucial to take the steps that will preserve and maximize your insurance coverage. To ensure that you receive all the benefits that your business is entitled to, familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of your policy before any problems arise. Work with your insurance company to create a checklist of your responsibilities after a loss to aid you in meeting deadlines and assembling documentation. Knowing what you are responsible for and being organized will make the recovery smoother and faster.

Making Your Claim

If your business is hit by disaster, set your recovery plan into motion by providing prompt notification of any claim to your insurance company. Be ready to meet any deadlines for filing proof of loss statements. If circumstances make the deadline for these statements unreasonable, get written approval for extensions. Be prepared to meet any requirements for preserving the evidence of your claim if destructive testing or immediate remediation is necessary. You will also want to record your loss mitigation efforts and the reasons that these efforts were needed.

Regardless of the cause of the catastrophe, a company's very survival often depends on responding quickly and efficiently, so a carefully constructed disaster recovery plan is one asset that every business needs.

Regardless of the cause of the catastrophe, a company’s very survival often depends on responding quickly and efficiently, so a carefully constructed disaster recovery plan is one asset that every business needs. SERVPRO of Pascagoula has a FREE customizable app that can aid your company recover in a timely manner. 

Timing Matters

Timing is critical in insurance claims. While keeping your insurance company informed is important, you need to understand any time limitations in your policy and their potential consequences. Review your policy to see if there is a deadline for electing a valuation method. See if there is a time limit for rebuilding or replacement. You will also want to check your policy for a suit limitation clause. Most policies contain one, so you will want to be sure that it is conservatively calendared to give you time to maneuver if necessary.

Payment Possibilities

It is not surprising that cash flow is a primary concern for a business working to recover after a catastrophe. While it can take time for a claim to be settled, some insurance policies contain provisions for claim advances or partial payments. Search through your policy to see if these provisions are included and identify how you would invoke them.

Re-establishing Operations

A business impact analysis (https://www.ready.gov/business-impact-analysis) of your business before a disaster will plan and effectively get your business running smoothly again. Before anything bad happens, think about how your business could operate during the recovery phase. This may involve moving to a temporary location or finding storage for undamaged inventory or equipment, so it’s smart to be aware of the possibilities in your area. Make a note to analyze leasing and service contracts if you are forced to relocate so that you can try to tailor them to your business’s specific needs.

Property Considerations

Regardless of where you set up shop after a catastrophe, you will have to decide what to do with your original location. Is rehabilitating or rebuilding the site worthwhile? If you believe that it is, then you will need to arrange for professional remediation, design and construction services. If you decide against rebuilding, then you must figure out how to dispose of that property and acquire a new permanent location. Remember that a new location will still require design and construction services in order to modify it to suit your company’s needs. Don’t forget to review zoning issues for any new property to verify that your business will be able to build appropriate facilities and operate as desired at that location.

Financing Issues

Even with insurance, a recovery may require financing. Depending on your recovery plans, options might include a line of credit, an acquisition loan or a construction loan. In some situations, it may be possible to use legal actions to seek reimbursement from the party responsible for your loss. Weigh all the possibilities carefully and remember to consider the potential tax consequences. Understanding the pros and cons of your options before any problems start will make it easier to make smart decisions when a disaster hits.

Back on April 19, 2017 SERVPRO received a call for help.  The local SERVPRO’s were not able to give the support that was needed to help the people in their city, Houston, TX.  So we assembled our team and headed West.  We were Houston bound to do what every we could to help where ever we could.  Not just our office but SERVPRO’s from all over the US.  Mississippi, Louisiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Alabama and other Texas Franchises were there to help.  We at SERVPRO know what it’s like when a disaster strikes.  We here on the MS Gulf Coast have made this call for Help several times in the past and that is why we are always one of the first to be on site when needed.  These pictures only tell part of the story.  It shows you the damage that a flood can do to a home but not what it can do to a person inside.

Flood Damage Prevention

3/5/2018 (Permalink)

According to the National Flood Insurance program, flooding is the most common natural disaster in the United States causing $2.7 billion in losses between 2001 and 2010. Flooding is not covered by most homeowner’s insurance policies so it may be necessary to buy a separate flood policy for your home.

  Here are a couple of tips to keep water from entering your home during a heavy rain event:

1.    Fix foundation leaks that may allow water to enter your home.

2.    Make sure your roof is secure and protected.

3.    Clear gutters and drains.

If water ever floods your home, getting someone on site as soon as possible is key to keeping the amount of damage to a minimum. SERVPRO of Pascagoula is ready to respond at any time.
