Post-Hurricane Clean-Up Tips

Post-Hurricane Clean-Up TipsAfter a hurricane, it can be extremely overwhelming putting the pieces back together. Not only do you have to think about cleaning your home and property, but fallen debris and potentially toxic floodwater can make the process both difficult and dangerous. That’s why it is important to adhere to the following guidelines to ensure you avoid hazards, health concerns, and other issues during the clean-up process.

  • Put on rubber or insulated footwear when working in wet conditions, and never enter a flooded space until you’re sure the electricity has been turned off
  • If you’re going into your home in post-flood conditions, wear gloves and other protective equipment, including respirators and goggles
  • Remove water and eliminate mold using utility pumps, wet/dry vacuums, and carpet and upholstery cleaners
  • Once standing water has been removed, use a dehumidifier or portable air conditioning unit (not outdoor central air units) to keep the air at a comfortable humidity and get rid of lingering moisture
  • Use a bleach solution and scrub brush to remove any mold from hard surfaces, and again, be sure to wear a protective mask and gloves
  • If you have any heavily soiled laundry, take it outside to rinse, wait for it to dry, then use multiple wash cycles at the hottest setting to remove any contaminates
  • When outside, use a wooden stick to turn over any upended items and scare any potential wildlife, like snakes

Our storm Tight experience has truly been a pleasure. The team was respectful of our property and minimized the mess even though it was raining off and on during the install. We will be proud to have a Storm Tight window sign in our front yard for some time to come.

The guys were great. It felt more like I was having friends over to help with the house than company paid to do it. The windows are so nice we're tempted to never put blinds up!

Living on a hurricane prone island, we replaced all 27 of our windows with Storm Tight hurricane windows. This summer we were pleasantly surprised by our electric bill. Last year, our bills ran over $500. This year, a little over $200.
