What to Do If a Tree Falls on Your Home

Split tree in the middle of the woods Fallen trees can cause a lot of damage, but there is a recovery process!

When a strong storm system moved through our area last month, many homes endured some kind of damage. Some were lucky with only minimal damages; others were affected by loose debris and fallen trees. Many people call us when a tree falls on their home, but there’s a process you should follow before you call!

  1. Call a tree removal company. Before our team can clean up the damage inside your home, the tree needs to be removed. Because we do not offer that service, you will need to find a local tree removal company. In some cases, they may also tarp exposed areas of your roof, but if they don’t, we can do that for you!

  1. Call your local disaster restoration company. Cleanup and restoration companies like SERVPRO of Iredell County are available to clean up the rain damage and debris inside your home. We use various equipment to extract water and dry moisture. We can also tarp and board exposed areas of your home if that hasn’t been done already.

  1. Call a roofing company. Once the tree has been removed and our team has mitigated the interior damage, it’s time to have your roof repaired. Contact a local roofing company to fix your roof. Otherwise, you could end up with water damage again in the future!

We know that property damage can be stressful, but calling the experts can make the situation much more manageable. If you have storm damage and need professional cleanup services, call SERVPRO of Iredell County today at (704) 872-7466!
