Hurricane Season Begins

Hurricane season is fast approaching for Florida and it pays to be prepared! While hurricane season in Florida doesn't officially start until June 1st, it's always better to be prepared early. Here in Sarasota, we know the importance of staying safe during these storms. So let's get down to business and talk hurricane preparedness!

Make a Plan:

  • Family Communication: Decide on a meeting spot outside of Sarasota in case you get separated. Also, establish ways to stay in touch with loved ones - determine a communication plan that includes both local and long-distance options.

  • Know Your Zone: Sarasota County uses a zone evacuation system. Identify your evacuation zone and have a plan for how you'll get out of town if necessary.

  • Shelter or Stay? Determine whether you'll shelter in place or evacuate based on official instructions and your home's vulnerability.

Assemble Your Kit:

  • Essentials: Stock up on a 7-day supply of non-perishable food, water (one gallon per person, per day), medications, a first-aid kit, and sanitation supplies.

  • Power Outages: Be prepared for potential power outages. Include a battery-powered or crank radio, flashlights with extra batteries, and a can opener on your list.

  • Important Documents: Keep copies of critical documents like insurance policies, IDs, and prescriptions in a waterproof container. Consider storing digital copies in a cloud storage service.

Home Sweet, Secure Home:

  • Storm Surge and Wind: Board up windows with plywood or hurricane shutters. Trim branches that could become projectiles in high winds. Clear your yard of loose furniture and decorations.

  • Flood Potential: If you live in a flood-prone area, consider elevating furniture and important belongings.

  • Utilities: Know how to turn off your gas, water, and electricity if necessary.

Stay Informed:

Remember, preparing for a hurricane is an ongoing process. By taking these steps now, you'll have peace of mind knowing you and your family are ready for whatever the season throws our way.

Hurricane Aftermath: Conquer Cleanup with a Roll-Off Dumpster Rental

Mother Nature's fury can leave a path of destruction, and in the wake of a hurricane, tackling the debris can feel overwhelming. But fear not! Here's how a roll-off dumpster rental can be your secret weapon for a swift and efficient hurricane cleanup.

Imagine a giant metal bin waiting to devour all your hurricane-related clutter. That's the magic of a roll-off dumpster. Whether you're dealing with:

  • Shingles and Roofing Debris: No need to risk back injury lugging heavy shingles. Toss them straight into the dumpster. With rear doors that open, our dumpsters are easier to load.

  • Broken Branches and Yard Waste: Snap those branches into manageable pieces or drag entire limbs into the dumpster and say goodbye to yard waste woes.

  • Damaged Furniture and Appliances: Don't let flood-damaged furniture or broken appliances take up space and gather mold around your home, discard them in a roll off dumpster and allow them to dump them responsibly.

  • Construction Waste: If your hurricane repairs involve renovation, a dumpster keeps construction debris contained throughout the repair project.

Benefits of a Roll-Off Dumpster Rental

  • Convenience: Skip multiple trips to the landfill. Fill the dumpster at your own pace and have it hauled away.

  • Efficiency: Clear debris quickly and focus on getting your home back in order.

  • Safety: Avoid hazardous lifting or sorting. A dumpster handles heavy and bulky items safely.

  • Cost-Effectiveness: Renting a dumpster is often more affordable than multiple trips to the landfill, especially for large amounts of debris.
