Storm Damage Repair for a Real Estate Office
Here in Massachusetts, we know how unpredictable the weather can be. We can have a 70 degree sunshiny day one day and then drop down to the 30s with a snow squall the next. Having all four seasons makes New England appealing to many, which is a boon for your real estate office sales. But with the four seasons comes the chance of different types of unsettled weather patterns, which can lead to severe storms and storm damage.
When it comes to your real estate office, storm damage needs to be repaired quickly to keep your office up and running and prevent potential buyers and sellers from going to your competition if you’re closed.
So, what can you do to repair storm damage? It depends on the type of storm:
- After a heavy rainstorm, inspect your office for flooding or other water damage. Your first step after a flood or water issue is to shut off the electricity to your office, get the water out, and then dry all of the affected furnishings, paperwork, and equipment. You also need to thoroughly dry your real estate office carpeting to prevent mildew and mold in your office.
- After a windstorm like a microburst, hurricane, or tornado, look up at your real estate office’s roof, and any trees around your office, to ensure wind damage didn’t knock a tree limb or branch onto or through your roof or through a window. If it did, contact the professionals like our commercial storm damage team and a tree removal company to extract the tree from your real estate office and assess and repair the storm damage.
