Today, we’re going to look into how our technicians utilize technology and their training to maximize efficiency when performing storm damage cleanup.


Increasing Storm Damage Cleanup Efficiency


We understand the importance of accuracy in increasing the efficiency of storm damage cleanup.


We also understand that an inaccurate scope of work creates estimate discrepancies which then negatively impacts the work.


To avoid these problems we utilize the latest technological solutions for creating a precise scope of work, but that’s only where our use of advanced technology begins.

Using Advanced Technology in Storm Damage Cleanup


Before beginning storm damage cleanup, we perform a thorough inspection to create an estimate and action plan to guide the work.


Digital tools assist our team in creating detailed inspections that help the cleanup process go smoothly. Our inspections include:


  • Roofs: Roofs are one of the most commonly affected parts of the home after a storm. We utilize tools such as Xactimate® and EagleView® to accurately capture details of the roof. This way we can identify any damage to the roof and include it in our action plan to ensure it’s treated
  • Elevation Measurements: Technological solutions, like Spike®, also help our technicians take proper elevation measurements. This means we can take measurements of otherwise inaccessible areas using highly accurate laser measurements
  • Floor Plan Data: Using tools like Bosch to capture floor plan data helps us measure the affected square footage and create an accurate estimate using our Xactimate tool


Experienced Estimators


Our advanced technology would be meaningless without our experienced estimators. They have an intimate knowledge of different types of damage, restoration work, and training in using the technology, so they can provide an accurate estimate. Our estimators will work with your claims adjuster to ensure they have everything they need to approve the work.


For example, if your home was flooded by heavy rains, we estimate the expenditure on the equipment and time needed to completely dry out the home.


In our estimate we include other aspects of the storm damage cleanup costs, including:

  • Replacing damaged insulation and drywall
  • Removing carpets and replacing them


Our combination of experience and advanced technology helps us perform storm damage cleanup effectively and efficiently.
