At Catastrophe Services, we’re your restoration specialists in Columbia, SC.

When disaster strikes in Columbia, throughout South Carolina, or in the Augusta, GA, area, we’ll help restore your property – and your life – to its previous condition. But we’d rather you didn’t need us, so make sure you complete these essential maintenance tasks this spring. A little work now will save a lot of time and money later.

Clean your gutters. If we could repeat this ten more times, we would—clogged gutters are the source of massive amounts of water damage.

Prepare your air conditioner. Trim plants and shrubs away from your central air conditioning unit. Contact a professional to change the filter, clean the coils, and unclog blocked lines if necessary. (Depending on experience, you may be able to do this yourself.) Remember that window unit filters should be changed every 60-90 days.

Change your furnace filter. Why wait to get ready for fall?

Check smoke & carbon monoxide detectors. There should be at least one (preferably more) working detector on each level of your house. Replace batteries as necessary.

Re-stain & seal wood decks or outbuildings. It’s your best protection against rotting structures.

It’s a pleasure to be your Columbia, SC home restoration specialists—we take great joy in helping our neighbors recover from disaster. But we’d much rather keep disaster at bay, so click through above for more maintenance tips, and enjoy the spring!

March saw Severe Weather & Flood Safety Awareness Week in South Carolina.

We don’t need to tell you why its lessons are so important this year. The commemoration has passed, but as summer approaches, take a moment to get reacquainted with severe weather and flood safety awareness in South Carolina.

Get ready. Prepare an emergency kit and develop an emergency plan with your family.

Watch & listen. Pay attention to media reports. A severe weather watch means a weather event is possible or likely in your area. A warning means severe weather is imminent or occurring. It requires immediate action.

Act quickly. When faced with heavy rain or flooding events, move to higher ground and stay there. Always heed evacuation orders. Never wade or drive into floodwater.

Your family’s wellbeing is our first priority. But if a storm damages your home or business, Catastrophe Service will restore your property quickly and safely.

Our specialty is South Carolina storm damage repair and restoration. From wind and water damage to mold, biohazards, and other dangers caused by severe weather, Catastrophe Services will restore your property to its previous condition or better.

Do you have questions about storm damage repair in SC or Augusta, GA? Give us a call at 800-952-6106. And, in the meantime, stay safe.
