National Preparedness Month 2022: Hurricanes
Ready.gov takes an extra step with National Preparedness Month to help people prepare for disaster. While we at SERVPRO of West Greenville County take all year to prepare for disasters and how to repair the damage after, we know that with the every day bustle of life that it can be easy to forget to prepare your home or business. We have a few reminders, courtesy of Ready.gov and AmericanHumane.org.
Before preparing your home or business for Hurricane season, first determine the best way to protect yourself from winds and flooding, know where to take refuge, evacuation routes, and your risk of potential damages from the storm.
After first preparing for your safety, make sure to strengthen your home or business by brining in outdoor furniture, trimming nearby trees and bushes, and reinforcing your doors and windows. Regular maintenance of the home is crucial for protecting it against heavy weather.
The best tip SERVPRO of West Greenville County can offer is to check your insurance coverage before disaster strikes.
