Storm Debris Cleanup Happen Fast With Junk King On The Job

The only good thing that can be said about a hurricane is that they are never a surprise. Unlike the tornadoes that plague the Midwest, a hurricane takes days to build up strength. They start out as tropical storms that either grow to hurricane size or break up. If they do grow to hurricane strength, the there are enough sophisticate modeling programs that can predict flood surges, wind speeds and the track of the hurricane. That gives residents in the path of the hurricane a chance to make the proper preparations. The key is to be proactive with regards to those preparations.

Leaving the Home

If an evacuation order seems eminent, then there is a lot you should do to prepare your home. If you have a second floor, then anything valuable on the first floor should be moved upstairs. Windows should be shuttered or covered with plywood. It is hard to imagine any homeowner along the Florida coast that doesn’t already have precut covers for their windows.

Around the yard, you want to make sure that anything that isn’t properly secured is stowed away. The includes everything from a BBQ grill to potted plants. They can all be weaponized in a hurricane. The more preparations you can take care off around your property the more time you’ll have to pack for the evacuation.

Packing Up

You should have a lockbox that can contain all your valuable documents especially your insurance policy. If possible, you should scan all those documents and email them to yourself. You should also pack a few days’ worth of clothing and any supplies like diapers for an infant or medications for grownups. Jugs of water, non-perishable snacks/food, flashlights and a first-aid kit should also be a part of your “go kit.”

Before leaving, you might want to consider shutting the water valve and flipping off the electricity and gas. Above all else, make sure you tell your friends, family and neighbors where you intend to evacuate to.

When the storm is over and you return to your property, the cleanup effort can begin. Hopefully, any damage will be kept to a minimum. You’ll be able to bring in the pros from Junk King Orlando to help with that storm debris clean up, too.

Bring In Junk King Orlando For Fast Renovation Debris Removal

Every reality renovation show on television follows a familiar formula. They find a couple in desperate need of a home makeover and offer the services of a team of experts.

More Focus On The Work

A typical work crew will work anywhere between 7 to 8 hours a day. A lot can be accomplished in that time. However, they have to factor in cleanup. Sometimes that means filling up their own pickup trucks with all the debris and driving off to a landfill to get rid of it. That would count as work time for your project. It also means that they won’t be doing a full day of work at your site. That could cause a delay with the project.
