Help Protect your Property in Federal Heights by Boarding Up for a Disaster

9/27/2019 (Permalink)

The front of a building boarded up. Boarding up your property can help keep more damage from happening after a storm hits in Federal Heights.

SERVPRO of Broomfield/NW Adams County is aware of the horrific damage a storm or hurricane can leave in its wake. Boarding up before or after a storm hits in Federal Heights 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, as well as 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 110 MPH)

It is always better to be prepared when winds of this magnitude strike our homes and offices. These tips can help you avoid disaster, but in the event you experience wind damage or other types of damage to your property in Federal Heights, please call the professionals at SERVPRO of Broomfield/NW Adams County at 303-452-9900 and we will do all we can to make it “Like it never even happened.”
