Our Residential Tropical Storm & Hurricane Recovery Services

Severe weather can mean a thunderstorm that causes hail damage and the need for tree removal or a natural disaster like a tornado or hurricane. No matter the kind of severe storm, properties across the region will require disaster recovery services to get back on track. With offices nationwide, ATI’s emergency response team has the necessary resources, manpower, and equipment to mobilize quickly.

Hurricane season comes with wind damage and storm damage. ATI has helped with recovery after hurricane-born floodwaters, high winds, and tornadoes that have destroyed entire communities. Preparing for hurricane season can be overwhelming, but properly doing so can help soften the aftermath. From insurance coverage to battening down the hatches, ATI can assess your property for risks and mitigate more significant issues before the storm makes landfall.

The most common repair needed after severe weather is water damage recovery and building repair. Water from flooding and torrential rain coming in through a compromised roof or otherwise damaged exterior of a building needs to be mitigated immediately to prevent secondary problems like mold growth and structural issues.

Water removal is usually the first critical step in hurricane recovery and returning your property to pre-loss condition. No matter what Mother Nature has done to your property, ATI can help navigate every aspect of stabilization, from insurance claims to recovery and repair services.

Our residential tropical storm and hurricane recovery services include:


Water Extraction

Water extraction removes property water intrusion and reduces drying time. Powerful sump pumps and truck-mounted vacuum units are used for quick, effective water removal. Other methods used include stopping the source of excessive flow of water, draining water, removal of non-visible water, drying the grounds, and dehumidifying the entire area.


Most building materials, like drywall and wood, are porous and can retain a significant amount of moisture. This causes materials to warp, swell, break down, and/or encourage mold growth. Our dehumidification team can manipulate temperature and humidity to remove any remaining moisture. We use industrial air movers and dehumidifiers to accelerate evaporation behind the walls, beneath the floors, and in other hard-to-access areas. Moisture monitoring equipment is also used to ensure acceptable moisture levels and that drying goals are reached.

Mold Remediation

More than 45 million buildings worldwide fall victim to mold, resulting in structural damage. Mold is a fungus, so it creates spores to reproduce. If you inhale these spores, it can be harmful to your family, which is another reason why mold removal and remediation is important. Our technicians safely remove all mold, whether visible or not. We repair any damage, and then guide you in preventing future mold growth.

Contents Cleaning & Restoration

Personal property and building contents are just as important as the structure. Through our contents cleaning and restoration services, we make every effort to preserve your family’s assets through general cleaning, dry cleaning, stain removal, electronic repair, and other services. Flooding and water damage often require contents to undergo odor removal and deodorization. Depending on the scenario, personal property may require the use of antimicrobial, antibacterial, and/or disinfectant treatments to sanitize badly damaged areas. We treat your items, and your privacy, with utmost care.

Document Drying

Professional document drying may be necessary after a tropical storm or hurricane. Desiccant dehumidifying, air-drying, freeze-drying, and even hand-dry cleaning techniques can all be used to restore important business records, photos, documents, and more.

What Are the Steps for Water & Wind Damage Restoration?

When a tropical storm or hurricane strikes, navigating the aftermath can be overwhelming. ATI Restoration understands this and offers a structured, step-by-step approach to disaster restoration, ensuring a smooth and effective recovery process.

From the initial damage assessment to the final quality checks, each phase of restoration is handled with expertise and care. Our comprehensive services cover every aspect of the restoration journey, tailored to bring your property back to its pre-disaster condition.

The key steps in this critical recovery process include:


Inspection & Assessment

The first step in any disaster restoration process is a thorough inspection and assessment of the damage. ATI Restoration specialists will evaluate the extent of damage caused by the tropical storm or hurricane. This includes identifying the type of damage, such as water, wind, or structural, and assessing the safety of the building. This step is crucial for developing an effective plan of action that addresses all areas of concern.


Emergency Response

Once the assessment is complete, immediate emergency response actions are initiated. This includes deploying rapid response teams who are equipped to handle various emergencies that hurricanes and tropical storms can bring. This phase often involves temporary repairs to prevent further damage, such as water extraction, boarding up broken windows, and providing temporary roofing solutions.


Securing the Property

Securing the property is a vital step to ensure safety and prevent additional damage. This might involve stabilizing structures, erecting temporary fencing, and securing openings in the building. The goal is to protect the property from further harm, whether from the elements, unauthorized entry, or other risks.


Documentation & Claims Processing

Documenting the damage thoroughly is crucial for insurance claims and future reference. ATI Restoration professionals will take detailed photos, write reports, and gather all necessary documentation to support insurance claims. They assist in navigating the complex claims process, ensuring all damages are accounted for and properly documented to facilitate a smooth claims experience.


Project Planning & Coordination

Once the immediate concerns are addressed, project planning and coordination begin. This phase involves outlining the restoration project, setting timelines, coordinating with contractors, and managing resources. The plan is designed to be efficient and effective, ensuring all aspects of the restoration are covered.


Structural Restoration & Repairs

This step involves the actual restoration and repair work. Depending on the damage, this can range from minor repairs to full-scale reconstruction. ATI Restoration employs skilled craftsmen and technicians to handle all aspects of structural restoration, ensuring the property is returned to its pre-disaster state or better.


Contents Restoration

Contents restoration focuses on salvaging and restoring items within the property. This can include furniture, documents, and personal belongings. Specialized cleaning, deodorization, and repair techniques are used to restore items to their original condition whenever possible.


Final Inspections & Quality Assurance

The final phase involves detailed inspections and quality assurance checks. This ensures that all work has been completed to the highest standards and that the property is safe and ready for occupancy. ATI Restoration's commitment to quality means that this final step is crucial to guarantee customer satisfaction and the longevity of the restoration work.

Each of these steps is essential in the disaster restoration process, and ATI Restoration is dedicated to guiding property owners through each phase with expertise and care. Their comprehensive approach ensures that every aspect of recovery and restoration is handled professionally, providing peace of mind in the wake of tropical storms and hurricanes.

How to Prepare for a Hurricane

Preparing for hurricane season is crucial, especially if you live in an area prone to such storms. Here’s a comprehensive list of steps to take:


Understand Your Risk

It's important to be aware if you live in a hurricane-prone area and to understand the specific risks associated with it, such as storm surges, flooding, and wind damage.


Create an Emergency Plan

Your plan should include a family evacuation strategy, detailing a meeting point and communication methods. Make sure everyone knows the routes to local shelters and incorporate plans for pets and family members with special needs.


Emergency Supplies Kit

Your kit should include essential items like non-perishable food, water (aim for one gallon per person per day for at least three days), personal hygiene items, medications, a first aid kit, a battery-powered radio, a flashlight, extra batteries, and copies of important documents. Considering the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, include masks, hand sanitizer, and disinfecting wipes. Other useful items are manual can openers, a multi-tool, and a local map.


Home Preparation

Prepare your home by reinforcing windows with storm shutters or plywood, checking and repairing the roof and gutters, and securing outdoor items like patio furniture that can become dangerous in strong winds. If possible, consider installing a generator for emergencies.


Insurance Check

Review your insurance policies to ensure they provide adequate coverage, especially for flood damage. Keep copies of your insurance documents in your emergency kit and understand what your policies cover.


Stay Informed

Keep up with local news for hurricane updates and understand the difference between a hurricane watch (conditions possible within 48 hours) and a hurricane warning (conditions expected within 36 hours).


Evacuation Readiness

Ensure your vehicle is ready for evacuation, with a full gas tank and in good working condition. Keep an emergency kit in your car, know your evacuation zone, and plan where you would go if required to evacuate.


Secure Important Documents

Keep vital documents like birth certificates, property deeds, and insurance policies in a waterproof container and consider having digital backups.


Community & Neighbors

Talk to your neighbors about preparedness plans and how you can assist each other. Engage in community preparedness programs if available.


Financial Preparedness

Have cash on hand as ATMs and credit card systems might not work during a power outage. Special Needs and Medications: Make sure you have a supply of items like prescription medications, glasses, and hearing aid batteries for those with special needs.


Pet Care

Include supplies for your pets in your emergency kit and ensure they have proper identification tags.

Remember, the key to hurricane preparedness is starting early and updating your plan and supplies annually before the hurricane season begins.
