Are you prepared for hurricane season? 

Hurricane and storm season is here. The key to protecting your home, family, work and community is readiness. Make sure you have an emergency plan for after the storm when you may be without supplies and surrounded by floodwaters for an extended period. Top considerations after a hurricane include: 

Mold Damage 

  • 24-48 hours after floodwaters infiltrate, mold takes root and spores begin to form 
  • Immediately remove moldy items and close off mold-infested areas to stop spores from spreading  
  • Be sure to disinfect surfaces, walls, furniture etc. with a product that’s EPA registered to kill fungi 

 Water Safety 

  • Receding floodwaters may be contaminated with dangerous bacteria  
  • Always wear protective clothing, such as gloves, masks, goggles, and boots 
  • Prevent gastrointestinal infections by disinfecting water before drinking
