Storms can be unruly, dangerous and unpredictable, appearing out of no where to cause massive amounts of damage that can cost thousands to repair. Unfortunately there isn’t a lot that can be done to prepare for a storm, but when it’s come through there can be a lot to be done to clean up after it. Because of the nature of a storm, it’s hard to know the actual damage that it makes until you start clearing it up - because of this there can be a lot of lurking dangers in the ground that you aren’t aware of, and it can be very dangerous for inexperienced people to clean up these areas of storm damage. Instead of putting yourself at risk, get a team of technicians that have dealt with this sort of damage before to handle it for you, just like Evanston Tree Removal.
Storm Damage Clearing
The aftermath of a storm can be horrendous, with structures that have collapsed and trees fallen on top of houses causing incredible amounts of damage. The most danger, however, comes from the trees and buildings that have fallen and damaged power or gas lines, this can be hard to see but can lead to situations where people are poisoned or electrocuted when they try to clear the area without the proper safety equipment or training. Our experienced staff know how to negotiate these dangers and can ensure that the clearing is completed properly without any further damage being done to people or property.
Waste after storm damage is often contaminated with all kinds of unwanted contaminants such as human waste, mud or unknown debris. This means that disposal can be quite tricky. When disposing of contaminated waste, its not as simple as going to the local recycle and waste centre to dispose of it, generally specialist disposal companies are needed to get rid of the waste legally. When we clean up an area after a storm has come through, we make sure that the proper disposal methods have been used to ensure that the environment has been kept safe and that the process has been completed legally.
Safety As A First Priority
When clearing up after a storm, the most important thing to consider is safety. When we approach a new job site we will always begin with a thorough inspection to see what may be laying in the damaged area. Sometimes structures have become unstable or power or gas lines have become exposed and are extremely dangerous to deal with.
Home and Property Repair

We can take care of any tree or bush maintenance and repair that is required, and we can help to connect you with trusted builders to repair any damage done to your property from the storm, so you can get back to living a normal life once again.
