Our SERVPRO Team Worked to Restore This Tornado-Damaged Church
Being the first call that we received after the tornado damage affected so many Wetumpka properties, our mobile unit was ready to roll out to assist quickly. Even with our inability to gain access to the property until the following day, our professionals worked quickly to set up our mitigation equipment and begin cleanup, extraction and drying efforts right away.
With this Wetumpka church remaining at risk for further elemental damages while the work continued inside, a temporary roof needed to get constructed and installed. Our professionals worked quickly to get the church back under the protection of a roof so that rainfall and other threats could not continually make the damage inside worse. Our technicians continued mitigation efforts inside to minimize the spread and impact of the effects after the tornado.
A large part of this initial arrival of our team was damage assessment and debris removal. After a tornado, the cleanup is often the priority to begin taking steps to restore the property completely. During this debris removal and cleanup efforts, our SERVPRO team could look over the full scope of the damage to structural elements and materials to determine what could get saved and what ultimately required replacement or reconstruction.
We understand that during a traumatic situation like this, others might take the opportunity to access the property without permission. To thwart this and other foot traffic that could impede the progress and pace of our technicians on site, we also installed a temporary fence to surround the property. Once restoration completes in the building, the fence can get taken back down, and the doors opened back up to the faithful congregation in the community.
While you can never predict the devastation of a tornado sweeping through the area, you can always depend on the fast and reliable services of our SERVPRO of Prattville rapid response team. We have the personnel and industry-leading equipment to make it “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime disaster strikes at (334) 358-1186.
