Cleanup After the Storm

Posted by Junk King on Jan 27, 2021 6:01:09 PM




When large storm systems move across the country they can leave behind more than rain. Downed trees, limbs, mud, and other debris can be the result.

While the rain will dry up, the mess that it created has to be cleaned up and gotten rid of. And that can be a challenge without the right equipment.

Rain, Rain, Go Away - and the Snow!

So far this year we've already had some record snowfalls in the Midwest and major flooding from torrential rain storms on the West Coast. And it's just getting started.

According to a mid-January article at Weather.com,

We've entered the time of year major Northeast U.S. snowstorms are most likely to occur, according to more than 60 years of government data.

From 1956 to 2020, almost three-quarters of all Northeast snowstorms attaining a Category 3 or higher rating on the Northeast Snowfall Impact Scale (NESIS) have occurred in late January or February, according to NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information.

Even in the last week of January, these were some of the weather headlines:

Extreme rainfall could top 20 inches in California

Winter storm begins blitzing across the southern US

Winter storm unloads 'historic snow' as it marches eastward

And with all the rain, wind, and snow comes broken power lines, flooded streets and homes, downed trees and broken limbs. Leaves and loose debris scattered across property or piled up against buildings and fences. 

Then, once the worst of it subsides, there is the mess remaining that has to be cleaned up. 

Wouldn't it be nice if all you had to do was pile it up or, at the very least, clear a path to get to it?

Storm Debris and Damaged Junk Removal, at Your Service

Now that the bad winter weather appears to be kicking in, people are trying to get stick to their normal routines as much as possible. And that can be challenging.

As we noted already, a blizzard or rainstorm can often leave a path of destruction in its wake that requires homeowners and businesses to take some immediate action in order to repair.

Here are a few items that shouldn't be overlooked during your post-storm cleanup process:

Damaged Furniture Removal

Outdoor patio furniture and porch items may have been damaged or even destroyed by the rain or snow. Not only are these broken items eyesores, but they also can be hazardous and dangerous to leave outside in the open.

The damage may not have been limited to the outdoor items either. Leaky roofs or flooding could have wrecked items inside your home or place of business. Leaving them around until they finally dry out may not be a good idea as they are prone to developing hazardous mold and fungi if they aren't disposed of quickly.

Yard Waste and Debris

Any big storm is bound to bring down some tree limbs (or even entire trees). These fallen tree limbs either end up strewn across a property, possibly blocking walkways and driveways. In worst-case scenarios, they may even end up causing damage to the house itself.

In addition to tree limbs, other outdoor materials like fence boards, mud and rocks can end up making quite a mess. All of which can leave outdoor spaces dangerous and unusable until the debris is properly removed.

Larger Items

You never know the extent of a storm's damage. Many winter storms are powerful enough to easily cause some areas of destruction within residential neighborhoods. It doesn't take much to damage or destroy many outdoor items, and residential structures are prone to damage, as well.

Cars, boats, bikes, trampolines, basketball hoops, and even entire homes can be broken apart. Needless to say, it's pretty hard to get back to a normal routine when portions of your home are broken or exposed, and building debris is strewn all over. 

Almost as hard as dealing with major damage mentally and emotionally, is the need to figure out how to clean up effectively.

Not to worry! A call to Junk King will bring you a team of professional and courteous junk removal specialists who are prepared to relieve you and your property of storm debris and damaged items.
