While Charlotte may not get the worst weather that comes tearing out of the Atlantic or barreling up from the Caribbean, it’s still a place that’s known to get its fair share of wind and storms. Add into that the occasional tornado, floods, lightning strikes, and ferocious ice storms, and you’ll be glad you have a company like All Dry USA on hand to clear up the mess when the worst does come to pass. Get in touch if you need help.
All Dry USA offers various damage repair services in and around Charlotte, and we pride ourselves on being the first number many people call when it comes to picking up the pieces.
Flood damage can be devastating and only worsens if not dealt with quickly and efficiently immediately after the event. Prompt water removal and a diligent clean-up process are essential to ensure that long-term structural damage is kept to a minimum while also preventing rot and mold from setting in.
Wherever you are in North Carolina, when the winds blow, they really blow. Damaging wind gusts can easily bring down trees, rip shingles away from your house, or even worse. During hurricane season, damage can be severe, with costs spiraling up. Hurricane Florence hit in 2018, causing an estimated $45 billion of damage across North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.
It’s been just over 30 years since the storm of the century blasted its way across North Carolina, covering Charlotte and just about everywhere else in thick snow that stayed on the ground for weeks. These types of storms may be rare, but when they do arrive, they bring devastation.
Lightning & Hail Damage
Direct lightning strikes on houses occur infrequently, but with an estimated 40 million strikes hitting American soil each year, don’t bet against it. Lightning can easily cause fire damage, while hail storms can devastate an area before you even know what’s hit you.
The first step after a storm is to assess and report any serious or life-threatening hazards to the local authorities. All Dry USA can only begin repairs or restoration work once the property has been deemed safe. Take a walk around the house and yard and quickly assess potential threats.
Are there any fire hazards, electrical threats, or gas leaks? Has the property flooded, and can you turn off the water, electricity, or gas supply? Are there any visible threats that might endanger you or anybody coming into your home, such as structural damage or downed trees?
You should report any immediate safety hazards to the relevant authorities straight away. If you don’t believe your house is safe, don’t risk it and leave the assessment to the professionals.
It’s a phone call nobody likes to make, but you should get it out of the way as early as possible. Inspections and payouts can often take a long time, especially if other properties experienced damage in the area. Once your initial assessment is complete, call the insurance company and get the ball rolling immediately.
We understand that you’ll want to get back to normal as quickly as possible, so make sure a call to All Dry USA is the next step you take. While insurance companies can sometimes drag their feet, we aim to get an inspector out to you as soon as possible.
Once our experts have made their assessment, we can outline what needs to be done, along with a rough schedule. With your agreement, we can get to work immediately.
This isn’t our first rodeo. We’ve perfected our process over many years to ensure that things get done quickly and we get you back into your home — and, most importantly, feeling at home — as fast as possible.
The first stage is coordinating with emergency services and the relevant authorities to ensure your home is safe to enter and carry out our work. Safety issues are not only a hazard; if not found immediately, they can disrupt or delay the process – meaning we get you back into your home later than planned.
At this stage, we’ll first remove fallen trees, board up windows and doors, and address any serious structural problems.
A detailed inspection is the most critical part of the whole process. If anything is missed or not taken care of properly, long-term problems can come back to haunt you. By carefully assessing your home, we can highlight everything that needs doing and in what order.
Floods can have a devastating effect on a home, even long after the water recedes. Dampness can eventually lead to structural problems and bring dreaded mold into your home – something that decimates your belongings and creates a health hazard for the whole family.
After the flooding stops, the clock begins to tick. Getting the water out is often the easy part, but drying and dehumidifying are vital to preventing mold from setting in. All Dry USA uses commercial-grade vacuums, air movers, and dehumidifiers throughout your home to significantly speed up the process.
Once the immediate threat of mold and dampness has passed, we’ll turn our attention to any repair and reconstruction needs. Doing so might be as simple as cleaning water stains from your carpets or as complex as rebuilding damaged walls or roofs – there’s no job too big or too small.
When a big storm is approaching, it’s essential to prepare properly. Think about stocking up on food and water, make sure those flashlights have new batteries, and inspect your property for anything loose that might already be hanging off that could cause damage.
Apart from that, there’s often little more we can do in the face of a major storm. Batten down the hatches and hope for the best – but know that our team at All Dry USA will be waiting on the other side if you need help with any interior restoration.
We provide comprehensive interior storm damage repairs, as well as water damage and mold remediation services in Charlotte. So whatever happens during that storm, if you need us, just call!
Over the weekend we discovered a discoloration in our bedroom wall and immediately suspected water damage. I called All Dry on Tuesday and made an appointment for the following day. All Dry was very professional and performed well. I was very happy with the service and would use them again or recommend them to a neighbor or friend.
Blake and his crew came out by 9:30 in the morning and immediately looked over the damage and where water had started from. They were very professional and took great care of furnishings and household items They were very courteous and understandable to my mom whose dementia was pronounced with the flood. Very helpful team.
We had a water leak in our in our bedroom with mold. Blake came out and thoroughly examined the damage helping us get to the root of the problem. He helped us develop a treatment plan for our mold problem and reassured us. He was great. I will definitely refer All Dry restoration to anyone with issues like ours.
