Help Protect your Property in Hollywood by Boarding Up After Disaster

8/7/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Hollywood/Hallandale/Aventura is aware of the horrific damage a storm or hurricane can leave in its wake. Boarding up before or after a storm hits in Hollywood will be beneficial to you and your property.  Unfortunately, during a storm, it is common for windows and doors to break leaving your house or office building susceptible to unwanted guests such as dogs, raccoons, cats, etc. These animals will continue tearing up what is already destroyed along with urinating and defecating, leaving unwanted odors. Boarding up can also help to deter people who might want to take advantage of your disaster by stealing or vandalizing your structure.

Here are a few of the letters you will find on a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) map when facing storms:

  • D = Tropical Depression (wind speed less than 30 MPH)
  • S = Tropical Storm (wind speed between 39 MPH and 73 MPH)
  • H = Hurricane (wind speed between 74 MPH and 110 MPH)
  • M = Major Hurricane (wind speed greater than 100 MPH)

It’s better to be prepared next time winds of this magnitude strike our homes and offices. These tips will help you avoid disaster if possible, but in the event you experience wind damage to your property in Hollywood, please call the professionals at SERVPRO of Hollywood/Hallandale/Aventura at 954-921-8992.
