There are a number of disasters that can damage the buildings of homeowners and business owners in Dallas, TX. As a result, your property can become unstable and exposed to the outside world. If this happens to you, we encourage you to take advantage of our emergency board up and tarping services here at ServiceMaster of North Texas. We offer 24 hour emergency response capabilities in order to respond swiftly, and prevent unnecessary damage from occurring.
Never Wait to Get Your Property Checked
If you have any reason to suspect that your property was damaged following a major weather event, accident, or something similar, you should contact a professional disaster restoration firm to inspect your property. Similarly, if you know that your property has been damaged, it is even more pressing that you react quickly. Waiting will only put you, anybody else on the premises, and your belongings in danger.
Dangers of Unsecured Properties
The biggest risk comes from damaged structural components. This is simply because it threatens to collapse large portions of your building. The repercussions of such an event are pretty straightforward. This is the primary reason you should have your property inspected.
There are also various problems that can arise as a result of exposure to outdoor elements. This happens when holes or openings appear in your roofing, siding, windows, and other outdoor-facing elements of your building.
Without emergency board up and tarping, the property is vulnerable to all of the following:
- Water Damage: Excess water and moisture can easily make their way into your building if any openings are present. This can lead to discoloration and deterioration of certain materials, and even result in structural damage if left unchecked.
- Mold Growth: As increased moisture enters your property, mold spores are increasingly likely to find their way in and take hold. Once this occurs, the mold can spread throughout your building, and cause damage to your belongings and health.
- Pest Infestations: Insects and other animals may begin to find their way inside if you allow openings to remain in your building.
- Vandalism and Burglarizing: In both residential and commercial areas, vandals and burglars will be attracted to buildings that provide an easy way in.
Preventing Additional Damage
Through ServiceMaster of North Texas’ emergency board up and tarping services, the risks of incurring any of the additional damage described above will be greatly reduced. Essentially, we will stabilize weakened structural elements of your building, board up and close any openings, and provide temporary enclosures if necessary. This will give you time to decide how to proceed with reconstruction and restoration work (which we can also provide).
