Water Damage Tips For Portland Properties

10/1/2020 (Permalink)

When water damage strikes your home, there will likely be damage to the structure of your home and the contents. SERVPRO of North Portland / West Hawthorne is committed to helping you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, no matter the time of day. We have crews who are on call around the clock to help you when disaster strikes. 

  1. Install storm shutters ahead of time to protect vulnerable windows. If a storm is approaching, temporary plywood shutters will work in a pinch
  2. Take shelter in an interior, lower-level room away from windows, doors, and skylights during a severe storm.
  3. If you lose power, unplug electrical appliances to prevent potential damage from a power surge once electricity is restored.
  4. Bring valuable items upstairs to protect from flood damage.
  5. If you hear thunder, hold off on showering until the storm passes. Lightning can travel through metal pipes and shock on contact.
