Safe Junk Removal Tips for Households Affected By Hurricanes!

Hurricane Ida is creating havoc across the Gulf Coast especially the state of Louisiana. If you are affected by the flood, here are a few safety tips to follow to do junk removal after the storm:
  1. Do not put yourself in danger or do not endanger others. If you see that there is a lot of debris, it is better to avoid doing it yourself and wait for professional help. For example, Haultail® junk removal services are affordable, fast, and efficient. Our team of junk removal professionals knows how to safely get rid of hurricane-caused debris.
  2. Create a disposal plan based on your budget and needs. Check what components can be reused, recycled or donated. Haultail® trash disposal service frequently offers discounts that will make it easy on your pocket.
  3. Open up your appliances that might have water inside them or any that are wet to let the water dry. Do not try to turn them on again especially if there is an electrical connection involved because it can lead to electric shock or electrocution.
  4. Protect yourself with proper gear because there might be a lot of hazardous objects all over the place. Use gloves, goggles, and boots to protect yourself against injury. Take extra precautions if you have children or pets because they can easily get hurt.
  5. Beware of wet furniture, appliances, and carpets. They are heavy so be careful while transferring them to dry areas in your home. Make sure that the items are dry after removing the water out of it by using fans, dehumidifiers, or heaters. Do not put those, especially the appliances that have been exposed to the water near the fireplace because it could lead to fire hazards.
  6. For minor debris, just follow your regular cleaning routine as soon as possible after a hurricane. Put away things that are wet carefully and wash clothes with soap and water as soon as you can.
