Our Team Can Help Prepare Your Home In Carolina Beach For Hurricane Season

Homeowners who prepared their homes in advance for a Hurricane sustained less damage than those who failed to do so.

Preparing For Hurricane Season Can Minimize Flood Damage In Carolina Beach

September is National Preparedness Month and knowing how to protect your Carolina Beach home from flooding brought by heavy rains and hurricanes can prevent costly damage from skyrocketing. In the aftermath, flooding of any quantity causes damage, but SERVPRO is here to help mitigate any amount of harm your property sustains.

When SERVPRO comes to clean up a home's flood damage, we arrive with pump trucks ready to begin extracting water and any debris from the home's interior. We also check to ensure that the interior is safe and remove anything that can cause injuries. Wearing personal protective equipment, we can work safely and efficiently. Injuries can slow a team down, so we always take care to prevent these wherever possible.

Homeowners who prepared their homes in advance for Hurricane Florence's arrival sustained less damage than those who failed to do so. Flooding that remained lower than other homes' means we can cut lower to the floor than we must in homes that remained unprepared. This may seem insignificant, but for an entire home, it can represent significant savings.

Boarding up windows and doors can also keep windows from shattering and debris from entering your home. This results in a reduction in clean up that requires attention and can also allow less damage to happen to your home's interior. Homes that have no boarding up beforehand often have several broken windows, and as high-speed winds from the hurricane enter, an unprotected home's furnishings often end up broken and smashed.

Preparing for the next hurricane is just as essential as it was for Hurricane Florence. Each one has the potential to devastate a home left unprepared for the wind and rain brought inland. SERVPRO is always ready, Faster To Any Size Disaster, to help mitigate flood damage and get things back to normal.

After flood damage caused by a hurricane or any other weather event, call SERVPRO of New Hanover at (910) 762-8180. We are here 24/7 and ready to take your call. Serving Kure Beach, Figure Eight Island, Leland, and the surrounding areas, we can quickly restore your property “Like it never even happened” again.
