How SERVPRO Fixes Flood Damage Caused By Hurricanes To Your Belle Isle Property
Flood Damage Experts In Belle Isle Talk About Hurricanes
The months of August and September is the time of year that hurricanes are common to hit coastal parts of the U.S. and their aftermath could affect the Belle Isle area. Hurricanes bring about massive rain and wind speeds over 100 miles per hour that can both cause your property extensive flood damage. Storms often develop out on the sea this time of year and gain their strength when they are in the middle of the ocean and surrounded only by water. Last year, seventeen tropical storms formed on the Atlantic, ten of them turned into hurricanes, and six of the ten were category three hurricanes or higher. Once they hit land, they weaken, but rainstorms can continue to head inland and cause flood damage in places far away from the coastline.
As we all know hurricanes can be one of the most devastating types of natural disasters. These storms can get so brutal that even homeowners in Belle Isle plan for flood damage when hurricanes get close to the Atlantic coast. September is national preparedness month, so it is the official time to make sure you are prepared in case bad things happen.
Also, when a big storm is on the forecast everyone that lives anywhere near the hurricane that is on its way should have a disaster plan tested and ready. Our SERVPRO team can help you be prepared, and we can come over and show you things you should do to minimize damage when you establish us as your certified restoration contractor and have us go through a preparedness plan with you.
