Strong Winds Causing Property Damage in Hilo?

5/9/2022 (Permalink)

A dog sits outside in his dog house. We restore storm damage in Hawaii and Maui.

Aloha! Our teams in Hawaii and Maui have over twenty years of experience restoring properties damaged by strong winds and storms in Hilo. Wind damage can be minimized by securing objects outside of the house. Here are some examples of ways to minimize wind damage from the Federal Emergency Management Agency:

Secure Objects Outside the Home

Loose shingles, your dog’s house, trash cans, and sports equipment can be picked up by the wind and cause damage to your home. Secure outdoor objects like furniture, gutters, and downspouts.

Trim or Remove Dead, Damaged, or Rotting Trees and Limbs

High winds can cause trees and branches to fall. Make sure any damaged trees on the property are trimmed or removed regularly. Your home should be at least a full-grown tree’s height away from the base of any tree, usually about 40 feet away.

Fortify Your Roof

Your roof is your first line of defense in a high wind event. Re-adhere any loose shingles and consider impact-resistant shingles when installing a roof. Install roof strappings to anchor the roof framing to the wall framings so the wind can’t lift your roof off your house.

A flooded road is shown. We are certified to restore homes compromised by contaminated water in Hawaii and Maui.

Aloha! Do you know that flooding is one of the top causes of water damage in the Hawaiian Islands? Our teams in Hawaii and Maui have over twenty years of experience mitigating and restoring water damage in Kamuela. Here are the three classifications of water damage we restore:

Category 2: "Gray Water"

  • It may contain bacteria and viruses
  • It can quickly degrade into category three if left untreated

Category 3: "Black Water"

This water is grossly unsanitary and could cause severe illness or death if ingested, and any contact should be avoided. Sources for category three water could include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

Hoarding Cleanup and Restoration Services in Kamuela?

3/21/2022 (Permalink)

A room in a house is filled by someone with a hoarding disorder. We clean and restore hoarding scenes in Hawaii and Maui.

Hoarding in Kamuela Home?

Aloha! Hoarding scenes are dangerous and require professional services to restore the damage. Our local teams in Hawaii and Maui can help. Here is some information from the National Fire Protection Association about hoarding:

What is hoarding?

Hoarding is defined as collecting or keeping large amounts of various items in the home due to strong urges to save them or distress experienced when discarding them. Many rooms in the home are so filled with possessions that residents can no longer use the rooms as designed. The home is so overloaded with things that everyday living is compromised.

Why is hoarding an issue for the fire service?

  • Hoarding can be a fire hazard, and many occupants die in fires in these homes. Often, blocked exits prevent escape from the house. In addition, many people who are hoarding are injured when they trip over things or when materials fall on them.
  • Responding firefighters can be put at risk due to obstructed exits, falling objects, and excessive fire loading that can lead to collapse. Hoarding makes fighting fires and searching for occupants far more difficult.
  • Those living adjacent to an occupied structure can be quickly affected when a fire occurs due to excessive smoke and fire conditions.

Call Us!

Hoarding scenes can be dangerous for everyone involved. If you have a hoarding situation in Kamuela and need cleanup services, call us at 808-329-6560. Mahalo!
