Remediation of Home Disasters

Remediation of Home Disasters can be Restored after Storms & Hurricanes; Hurricane Irene caused Tremendous Home Damage

September 1, 2011 - Author: Patricia F. Mitrano

While waiting for the arrival of Hurricane Irene in New Jersey, if lucky enough to still have power, being glued to the news and following her path was all we could do. Unfortunately for many, the aftermath will be felt for a long time as the massive clean-up begins. Curb Appeal Designs extend our thoughts to those who have been affected by the storm and hope all are safe and would like to help by offering the following tips to start the recovery.

Remove all visible water through use of shop vacs, fans or dehumidifiers. Consult with electricians before attempting to turn power back on. Be aware of the opportunity for mold growth in drywall or any other porous surface. All affected items must be removed. Be mindful of the placement of debris outside your home as it may cause hazards.

How do I know when and where my home needs improvement?

Home beautification is a challenge for first time and experienced homeowners. Many homeowners have trouble answering the first question: Where should I start improving my home? This is an important question, but once we answer it, finding who to will finish the job is simple.

Just like when you’re hanging portraits and posters, take a step back and see what’s crooked. View your home from the street or from a distance. What do you notice about your home? What do you love? What could your home do without? What might need maintenance? In determining where to start, it helps to approach your home like a new homeowner or buyer, with fresh eyes. When you’re looking at your home from a distance, imperfections can become more visible. It’s important to ask what areas of your home jump out at you. Does your roof look deteriorated? In general, a roof should be replaced every 25 years. If you choose to have your roof replaced, be sure that the roofing color doesn’t clash with the color of the rest of your house.
