Last Minute Preparation for Hurricane Damage to Your New Hanover Property
Reinforce Your Home in the New Hanover Area Against Hurricane Florence and then Evacuate
While many in the New Hanover area have already sought out safe accommodations out of the path of the looming and growing hurricane approaching the coastline, many homeowners wonder what more they can do to protect their properties and to reduce potential restoration costs once the severe system passes through. Here are some things that you can still do to limit the damage that your home can sustain from the looming storm.
To fortify your New Hanover home from Hurricane Florence is to reinforce weak areas as best as you can. If you have resided in the coastal areas for many years now, you are likely already familiar with boarding up your windows if you do not have accordion shutters and similar approaches to prevent the conditions from getting worse while your house weathers the impending hurricane.
Another thing that you should consider as you set to face Hurricane Florence in the Wilmington area is that this is one of the worst storms that the area has seen for a long time. Tropical storms and severe weather systems might not be newsworthy through the average hurricane season; the Carolina coast government agencies are mandating that residents evacuate coastal counties in preparation for destructive forces. Seek a safe place to wait out the effects of the storm for you and your loved ones. Personal safety is of paramount importance.
Our SERVPRO team of professionals can help you to overcome any of the damages that your home might sustain during this severe event, and our emergency response team is available 24/7 to respond to the situation. As you return to your home when the situation is safer, our team of dedicated professionals can help you to assess the full scope of this damage and mitigate the situation from getting worse. This means pumping out standing water, moving and trying to preserve furnishings and possessions, drying out with dehumidification and sanitizing your home.
While you cannot avoid in many cases the kind of destructive damages that a hurricane of this size can produce in the area, you can rest assured that the right measures can get taken after the storm passes to clean up the mess and restore your property.
