Readying for Hurricanes in Carolina Beach
SERVPRO Technicians are Trained to help You Get Ready for a Storm
Readying up for hurricane season is a tradition familiar to many in the Southeast. In some regions such as Florida, hurricanes are so frequent as to be a seasonal factor of life. The entire region, however, is still equally vulnerable to these potentially devastating storms, especially the Carolina coasts. Getting ready for these destructive and potentially dangerous storms could save you thousands of dollars in restoration and repair costs. That is if you are willing to get serious about hurricane preparation, do your homework and safeguard your home with these preventative measures.
Get the Property Inspected
Getting your property inspected by a certified company like SERVPRO could save you from catastrophic flood damage in Carolina Beach in the next hurricane. Certified inspectors can identify problems even if they are hidden and obscure, reaching and reacting to them before the ravaging floodwaters get a chance to. Inspectors may also find other risks and points of damage you may not even know about, such as mold growth. Although you may be worried about the costs of inspection and any repairs done after it, this insurance is a far smaller cost than an unmitigated hurricane wreaking havoc.
Get Leaks Patched
Leaks may be a minor concern for you normally, but they become significantly more pressing when a hurricane is about to hit. Leaks in your home can allow high winds and rain to blast in, soaking the area around the leak. Getting SERVPRO to repair leaks around your home may be a worthwhile investment, before the next big storm hits and takes advantage.
Storm Windows and Doors
Some homes, especially older and cheaper ones, may lack suitable storm windows. Upgrading built-in windows or investing in a strong set of storm windows is a must in this case, as otherwise, they may easily shatter under impact or simply heavy wind and hail in the storm.
