Keeping Your Home Safe during Hurricane Season

Hurricanes can be devastating for both home and business; there are things that you can do to protect yourself in the face of the storms. One of the most dangerous aspects of hurricanes is the power loss that can go on for days or weeks. During a power outage, some homeowners result to using candles and gas generators to provide them with light and power. These items can be deadly if not used safely. Instead, smart home and business owners in Southeast Florida should consider having a standby home generator installed.
