October 10th, 2018:  a day that will never be forgotten by so many Bay County residents.   Hurricane Michael made landfall in Bay County, Florida, forever changing the landscape of the area, and affecting so many lives.  SERVPRO of Bay County worked, and continues to work, tirelessly to cleanup and restore the numerous homes and business affected by the storm’s landfall.  Now, along with the extensive damage caused by the initial storm strike, Bay County residents are facing lingering, residual effects of Hurricane Michael, which are causing additional threats to their homes and businesses:

  • Flooding – the Bay County area has seen an increase in flooding issues over the past couple of years. Areas that were unlikely to flood pre-Hurricane Michael are now seeing rising waters during periods of rainfall and thunderstorms.  Debris restricting drainage, a lack of trees to absorb the rainfall, and a changed terrain are a few of the theories as to why. 
  • Wildfires – Within just the past couple of weeks, Bay County has dealt with a barrage of wildfires, which are generally uncommon for the area. These fires, fueled by tons of downed timber left in Hurricane Michael’s path, grew rapidly, causing numerous evacuations of communities.  As a result of these fires, many homes sustained smoke, soot, and even flame damages.

SERVPRO of Bay County has worked hard for our community before and during Hurricane Michael and will continue to work hard in the “after” too.  Our highly trained team has the experience and resources to provide a variety of water, fire, and mold damage remediation services, taking great pride in providing the best possible customer service during times of disaster.  If you home has suffered damages from flooding, wildfires, or any other residual effects of Hurricane Michael, don’t hesitate to reach out, We’re Here to Help!
