Importance of swift storm damage cleanup

With late spring storms, it’s important for property owners to conduct swift storm damage cleanup. The quicker you cleanup your property following a storm, the less likely it is that someone visiting will get hurt by the debris. For the most part, you have 24 hours from the end of a storm to cleanup the debris left behind. This should give you plenty of time to make the necessary adjustments to the property if the storm was not catastrophic in the Pomona area.

Business owners and homeowners are responsible for the upkeep of their properties. It doesn’t matter how large the property is, or if it is residential or commercial. This is a legal responsibility that could land the property owner in a lot of hot water if someone gets injured.

Storm damage to your property can be very dangerous. Downed tree limbs, or trees, cracked sidewalks, brush, roof shingles can all cause serious injuries to visitors to your property. They can create trip and fall hazards and many other dangers that can lead to serious or tragic injuries.

Storm cleanup should not be left for days on end. You don’t want the debris to just sit on your property. Aside from the fact that it’s visually undesirable, it can be dangerous to you and your visitors. It reduces your curb appeal until it is cleaned up properly.

Property cleanup following a storm is a big issue in Pomona. Property owners who fail to perform this task could face penalties from the local governing body and even more serious issues if someone suffers an injury.
