Hollywood FL Water Damage Experts Offer Tips on Preparing Your Home for a Hurricane

Hollywood FL emergency flood water removal Most of us in the Hollywood Ft. Lauderdale area were fortunate to dodge a bullet from Hurricane Matthew. People in other costal states were not all as fortunate. But we all know how unpredictable and dangerous hurricanes can be. In a bad storm season, South Florida hurricane damage can total in the millions. Always take the warnings seriously. While the safety of your family should be paramount, you should also take precautions to protect your home against hurricane damage. Here are a few tips to do just that:

  • Back your car up until it touches the inside of the garage door. This will reinforce the door and minimize the risk of the wind blowing the door off.
  • Stock up on duct tape, tarps and roofing nails and have a commercial mop and bucket ready.
  • Keep all windows in your home or office closed. Wind blowing in through windows can provide enough lift to take a roof off.
  • Be certain you have enough storm insurance. If your home is damaged you will need a Hollywood restoration company. Understand what’s covered and what’s not.
  • Inspect the outside of your home. Be sure to clean up debris and take inside any objects that can be swept away by strong winds such as patio furniture, bicycles and lawn ornaments
  • Inspect the tree limbs that are close to your home and roof. Consider cutting down any branches that could fall on your home and do damage.
  • If you have hurricane shutters, check to see that you have all the parts and don't wait for the rain to start to install them.
  • Fill your gas and propane tanks.

If you live in South Florida you know how serious Hurricanes are. With smart preparation you can help protect your home from damage.
