Commercial Miami's Commercial Flood Damage Experts Discuss Problems With Lightning During severe thunderstorms, there are many elements that can cause damage to your property in Miami.

Commercial Flood Damage

During severe thunderstorms, there are many elements that can cause damage to your property in Miami. Severe weather causes things like high-speed winds that can cause commercial flood damage. Wind can blow stuff like branches and rocks into your warehouse's structure creating holes for water to enter. If it rains enough during a Miami storm, your business district could flood which can also cause water to get into your company's warehouse.

Lightning is another aspect of thunderstorms that can cause problems. If lightning hits your roof, it can cause issues that create water to enter your building which can cause commercial flood damage to your Miami business. Any time water enters your structure it can ruin a variety of building materials inside your warehouse. If excessive moisture is left inside a structure for too long, mold growth can occur. If mold starts to grow, it can cause health problems for your company's employees and customers.

Any time water enters your business' warehouse prompt mitigation is necessary. Our SERVPRO restoration crew knows that removing moisture within 48 hours to prevent mold growth is essential. The first thing our experts do when arriving at any emergency damage call is to secure the area. Storms can cause problems to buildings that create things like trip or fall hazards for the occupants at your place of business. We inspect the entire affected area and repair all of the hazards that we can. If there are places that have hazards such as electrical issue we block off the are until a certified electrician can fix the problem.

Next, we repair the hole where water entered so that no more moisture can ruin building materials. If the problem was created by lightning, then our SERVPRO technicians board up and seal off the hole created so that water cannot continue to leak into your warehouse. Before mitigation procedures begin we determine what is required to permanently fix the lightning damage and include it in the estimate.

We conduct all work procedures in ways that can keep your business functioning. If you ever need help after lightning strikes your business, call SERVPRO of South Miami at (786) 610-5955 24/7.
