Commercial Damage from Tropical Storms & Hurricanes

Named after the area between the Tropic of Cancer to the north and the Tropic of Capricorn to the south, tropical weather is influenced by heat energy from warm seas and hot, humid air. Due to being near the equator, this band holds vast areas of warm water and is where most tropical weather originates. However, the subtropics, a zone from the tropics to the 38th parallel of each hemisphere, can be a seasonal source for tropical development as well. Tropical weather, which includes tropical storms, hurricanes and El Niño cycles can wreak havoc on your business. When your place of business comes up against these forces of nature, ServiceMaster Restore is your go-to expert for guidance, for helping businesses emerge from the storm and for getting back in business.

A hurricane watch means conditions are possible within the next 48 hours. A hurricane warning means conditions are expected within 36. Response experts for weather’s worst events, ServiceMaster Restore carefully monitors every tropical disturbance, tracking development and potential landfall, analyzing the possible storm and wind damage, and mobilizing resources to restore your business.
