Hurricane season is just getting underway and already a major tropical storm has hit the Gulf Coast of Florida.
In Florida, severe weather is often a real threat. High winds, heavy rains, and storm surges can cause damage to homes and businesses.
Cleaning up after a hurricane or tropical storm can be a big job. Fortunately, the professional cleaners at Carvalho’s Cleaning are experienced at helping homeowners and business owners alike recover from severe Florida weather.
Keeping Safe in Serious Weather
The first and most important thing when dealing with heavy weather is the personal safety of you and your family. Thanks to advanced weather forecasting technology, most hurricanes and tropical storms can be predicted far in advance of landfall.
If your home or business is in the projected path of serious weather, it’s critical that you follow all civil defense warnings. If a hurricane evacuation is called, you need to move to safety as quickly and safely as possible.
While there are steps you can take to help protect your home or business before the storm hits, there isn’t anything you can do prevent it from happening. It’s more important for you to be safe than to try and get between a hurricane and your home or business.

After the danger has passed and the authorities say it’s safe to return to your home or business, you can assess the storm damage.
If there is major structural damage, your insurance company will likely give you guidance as to what steps to take next. If the damage is mild they may recommend that you hire an outside company to help you with the post-storm cleanup or if the job is too big to handle on your own, then your next call should be to Carvalho’s Cleaning.
