Hurricane Clean Up Service - Southwest Florida

With hurricane season quickly approaching, it’s time to start devising a game plan in the event of a devastating storm.

The obvious factors that should be considered are your health, food, clean drinking water, shelter, and a generator. Other factors that you’ll want to consider are your clean up efforts.

In this article, we’re going to focus on the clean up of your swimming pool.

If you’ve only been a resident of Southwest Florida for a short period of time, you may not be aware that the Atlantic Hurricane Season runs from June 1st through November 30th.

Those of us that have lived here or owned a home here for a number of years, can attest to the fact that even though we haven’t had any seriously devastating storms make landfall since 2005, Florida is always at risk! The following storms come to mind:

  • Hurricane Donna (Category 4, 1960)
  • Hurricane Andrew (Category 5, 1992)
  • Hurricane Charley (Category 4, 2004)
  • Hurricane Wilma (Category 3, 2005)

According to the National Hurricane Center: Andrew, Charley, and Wilma caused over 62.6 billion dollars in damage and are listed in the top 6 of the 30 costliest mainland United States tropical cyclones, from 1900 to 2010. Hurricane Donna caused 50 deaths!

So if you haven’t had to deal with the effects of a major hurricane (such as the ones listed above), consider yourself fortunate because our peninsula is almost surrounded by warm tropical waters…perfect for sustaining hurricane force winds.
