Day 5 of Hurricane Prep Week is about getting your home ready. If you plan to ride out the storm in your home, make sure it is in good repair and up to local hurricane building code specifications. Many retrofits are not as costly or time consuming as you may think. Have the proper plywood, steel or aluminum panels to board up the windows and doors. Remember, the garage door is the most vulnerable part of the home, so it must be able to withstand the winds. Trim your trees to prevent damage from snapped branches and board up your windows to protect them from flying debris.

Hurricane Prep Week Day 3
Day 3 of Hurricane Prep Week is about reviewing your insurance. Look at your policies ahead of time to see what's covered and if flood insurance is available to you since it's the leading cause of damage from tropical systems. The best time to prepare for a hurricane is before hurricane season begins on June 1. It is vital to understand your home's vulnerability to storm surge, flooding, and wind.

Extraction is a critical step to removing moisture from a structure. The more excess water that restorers remove with extraction equipment, the less time they will spend to evaporate and dehumidify the remaining moisture with drying equipment.
