Dalworth Restoration crews are to assist commercial customers with water damage restoration following Hurricane Isaac’s torrential rains, 80 mph winds and significant floods. Flood cleanup efforts by trained restoration personnel are essential in times of natural disasters. In fact, damage assessment and recovery plan implementation are key services that allow business operations to resume as quickly as possible.
Hurricane Isaac is a Category 1 storm that overwhelmed observers with its slow moving yet particularly destructive flooding. Power outages affected 700,000 residents and fallen trees and other debris blocked roads throughout the storm’s path. Heavy rainfall also contributed to massive water damages in the affected areas. New Orleans has been spared the full impact of the hurricane, although areas around the city and along the coastline suffered tremendous storm surges that swept away houses and left residents and cars stranded.
Massive cleanup and restoration work will be necessary to rebuild the affected areas touched by the tropical storm. The undertaking will require a hefty budget and will depend on a collaborative effort by city personnel, paid professionals, as well as volunteers to rebuild infrastructure and restore normalcy and functionality to the cities, towns and municipalities that suffered extensive storm damage.
