Cleaning Up Debris After a Storm


When a storm hits, you are left with having to hire people to help clean up the mess left behind. The Better Business Bureau has some timely reminders.

Cleaning up debris after a storm:

  • Urgency and safety to repair/clean up. Don’t act in haste.
  • Watch out for companies knocking at your door. Most companies will be very busy right now and will not knock.
  • Be careful if they claim your home is unsafe. 
  • Check with your insurance company. 
  • Prepare a written agreement that includes details of work to be done, cost and time.
  • Do not give in to pressure. Even during this time of immediate need. 
  • Do not pay unknown companies up front. Check them out first at BBB.ORG.
  • Do not pay 100% until complete. 
  • Shop around and use reputable companies with a proven track record. 
  • Report fraud and bad business to BBB to help warn others. 
  • Be patient. Clean up will take some time.
