Experiencing damage from thunder and lightning, whether in your home or your commercial space, can be a catastrophic event. With bolt temperatures hotter than the sun’s surface and voltages that can exceed 100 million volts, lightning (and the accompanying thunder) packs an extremely dangerous punch.
From power surges and electrical outages to fire and smoke, thunder and lightning damage is real. At ALL-CLEAN USA, we take thunder and lightning damage restoration very seriously to ensure you are not dealing with the repercussions for years to come.
Thunder & Lightning Damage Is Real
Most people don’t realize just how much thunder and lightning can affect their property. When thunder and lightning storms occur, they can leave a wake of disaster, including concrete, brick, wood, cinder block, plaster, stone damage, and it can also break glass or crack the structure’s foundation.
In the case of thunder damage, at an extremely close range, the shock wave, pressure and dissemination of thunder can cause both exterior and interior damage to your home or commercial property.
Thunder damage examples include:
- Drywall popping away from horizontal and vertical wooden studs inside structures
- Shattering of glass windows
Lightning can reach temperatures five times hotter than the sun. Add to the possibilities of fire damage, lightning strike damage can occur to electrical wiring, electronics, appliances and more throughout your property.
There are three main ways lightning enters homes and commercial properties:
- A direct strike
- Through wires or pipes that extend outside the structure
- Through the ground
Regardless of the method of entrance, once in a structure, lightning can travel through electrical systems, landline phones, plumbing, through radio or television reception systems, and via any metal wires or bars in concrete walls or flooring.
