Is Your Commercial Building Santa Ana Wind Prepared?

Is Your Commercial Building Santa Ana Wind Prepared?

If you have ever lived in Southern California, you know how magical the Santa Ana winds can feel rolling in from the desert. They are warmer, can occur throughout the day and evening, and also can be considered a light breeze that can suddenly turn into a 80 mile per hour gust.

Our homes are not the only important thing to protect during a Santa Ana wind storm. If you own or rent a commercial property, it is crucial to protect your business.

Are you a restaurant owner? Keep your patio covered. Bring in outside furniture that can be light enough to be blown away, or knocked over by the wind. Patio umbrellas especially should be brought in doors. They can easily be damaged, or worse, they can damage your property. Imagine an umbrella going through a building window at 60 miles per hour. 

Overhangs, especially cloth ones, can be easily destroyed during a windstorm. Roof tiles that need repairing are also a large risk. Consider calling SERVPRO Glendora & San Dimas for a temporary roof tarp installation. Roof tarps are a great way to protect overhangs and your roof from heavy wind damage. 

Always be aware of power lines around your commercial building. Always call 911 if you have a down powerline on your commercial property, and never go near it.
