How To Recover After A Tornado In North Side?

7/12/2021 (Permalink)

When a tornado rips through North Side, it can become all-encompassing. Not only does it take a mental toll, but the damage caused by a tornado can have long-lasting effects on a community. According to a study done by the CDC, nearly 50% of the injuries that happen as a result of a tornado occur during the rescue, cleanup, and after tornado activities. Through our mitigation efforts at SERVPRO of Gold Coast/Lincoln Park/Lakeview, we can help you take steps to get your home or business back to preloss condition. 

Inspecting The Damage To Your North Side Home?

  • Ensure that everyone is safe and take care of any physical injuries before worrying about structural damage
  • Don’t enter a building until you are told it’s safe to do so by first responders
  • Wear appropriate clothing like sturdy shoes, long sleeves, gloves, etc. when inspecting the damage done to your property
  • Turn off electricity, gas, and other utilities that could be dangerous to use
  • Take pictures and videos to document all damage for your insurance claim
