As Greenville enters the peak of hurricane season, being prepared is crucial for safety. SERVPRO® of Greenville is here to provide insights, support, and restoration services should you face storm damage. Here’s an in-depth look at what you need to know:

Before the Storm:

  • Know Your Risk: Research Greenville's flood zones, elevation, and historical hurricane impact. Stay alert with local weather warnings. Check county Government sites for flood zone information and other useful flood tips. 
  • Secure Your Home: Strengthen windows, doors, and roofs. Trim trees, clear gutters, and install storm shutters if possible.
  • Communication Plan: Make a detailed emergency plan for family members, including pets.
  • Essential Supplies: Stock water, food, batteries, medicines, important documents, and hygiene items.

When the Storm Hits:

  • Stay Safe Inside: Avoid windows, shelter in a room without windows, and stay on high ground if flooding occurs.
  • Don’t Risk Travel: Driving or walking through floodwaters is extremely dangerous.
  • Constant Updates: Use battery-powered radios or apps to follow local weather and emergency information.

Post-Storm Recovery:

  • Inspect Damage Carefully: Ensure power is off if water has entered, and avoid downed power lines.
