Why Are Board Up Services Important?
In the confusion and chaos that occurs after a natural disaster, many homeowners struggle to prioritize and get everything done. Board up services are often forgotten in the rush to call the insurance company, save property, and call friends and family to let them know you’re okay. Boarding up your home is a crucial part of disaster restoration and clean up services for many different reasons, including:
Protecting Your Home from Elements that Could Damage It During Smaller Follow-Up Storms
Damaged roofs, smashed windows, and broken doors can all let snow, rain, and wind into your home and cause even more damage. If your home was spared from water damage the first time around, an improper board up job can leave it vulnerable to water damage and flooding after the fact.
Protecting Your Home from Animals
Wild animals are always waiting for a window of opportunity to enter your home and make it their home. Unsecured doors, windows, walls, and roofs are that window of opportunity. Anything from raccoons to birds can cause even more damage in your home, track bacteria and debris all over, urinate and defecate all over your flooring, and tear up your textiles and furniture.
Protecting Your Home from Vandals
Unfortunately, crimes of opportunity are a reality after every major disaster. Some people will see your tragedy as their chance to make a quick buck or cause even more damage, so board up your home to stop them from taking the chance. Vandals know that no electricity means no security, so an open door means the chance to steal without the chance for prosecution. Emergency board up services will keep your home safe when you’re at home and out of your home.
