Clearing Attic Flooding After Severe Weather Threatens the Orlando Area

12/28/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO provides emergency storm damage services for our Orlando area neighbors--from chimney to crawlspace.

Many factors can make a roof vulnerable to water penetration in Orlando home

Central Florida can experience violent, threatening weather during several months of the year. There are many ways that specific conditions can impact the roof and connected attic space of residences throughout Orange County. These include:

  • Harsh winds
  • Hail
  • Tropical storms
  • Tree damage

Emergency Services to Protect Stored Belongings

Among the initial actions of flood and storm cleanup in Orlando for damaged attic spaces is the removal of belongings stored in this area of the house. Many attics become a catch-all for items you do not wish to part with but have no space for in the main living area. Our fast mitigation response allows us to relocate these items to prevent unnecessary damage.

Board-Up and Tarping Solutions

Repairs are not the priority after storm damage and flooding. Instead, our mitigators focus on temporarily sealing over roof vulnerabilities with tarps or boarding up openings and windows to prevent further water penetration as restoration gets underway.

Drying Saturated Building Materials

Every water damage incident and flooding scenario requires some form of drying. Exposed elements like the construction materials of the attic can rapidly absorb intruding water, especially unfinished wood and OSB board. We have multiple drying tools to help, like:

  • Air movers
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Portable heaters

Beginning the Build-Back Process

One of the advantages of choosing our SERVPRO professionals after storm and flood damage is our ability to perform a range of build-back services. With a general contractor license and years of experience, our roster can take care of many repairs and reconstruction needs your house might have after flood exposure. We evaluate the needs of your home upon arrival and can seamlessly transition to construction after the restoration completes.

Harsh weather is not a stranger to the Greater Orlando area, so our professionals must stay prepared to help as fast as possible. We arrive with mitigation equipment and restoration tools to clear water in the attic or flooding anywhere else in the house.
