Most of Florida has felt the effects of Hurricane Ian.
From roof damage to flooding to boats flying into buildings and wave runners on your front porch, the damage is historical in scope and destruction. When dealing with hurricanes, it’s important to remember to mitigate your damages as quickly as possible to prevent further damage to the property. That includes such things as tarps on the roofs or patch shingles on the roofs or even patch repairs on the tile roofs.
With Hurricane Ian, you can be sure there significant glass windows were cracked, broken, and even blown completely out. These windows need to be boarded up with materials such as plywood and wooden boards so that the rain and wind will not add to the possible damage of leaks, flooding, and onset mold already created by the hurricane.
In some locations, the hurricane generated small tornadoes and microbursts of strong wind that may have twisted the railings on balconies — or worse, such ripping them off from the building and causing damage throughout other portions of the property.
Category 4 and border line category 5 (156 mph is a category 5) hurricanes, such as Ian, will produce incredible amounts of debris and damage just from the wind or excessive amounts of rain. It’s imperative, to take action to both mitigate the damages but simultaneously preserve the damages so that the insurance company can review what has taken place.
Pictures, videos and especially aerial drone videos are a great asset in providing the documentation that is needed. Drones with Infrared capabilities will also show the necessary “hot” spots or the water intrusion that may possibly exist from the significant wind damage.
After the Hurricane, the water intrusion can be your worst enemy and must be stopped as quickly as possible to prevent further damage such as mold.
Take immediate action using preventative measures like tarps and patching. This will assist in the process of stopping the ongoing effects of the intense damage the 155mph winds has caused to the area.
When you have been affected by a once in a 100 year event such as Hurricane Ian, the best thing to do is act as quickly as you can to the best of your ability.
